Now that Christmas is over, is anyone else appalled at the mess in their homes? In my hurry and flurry of Christmas preparations and parties, many spaces in my house look pretty disastrous. I knew it was coming – every year as soon as I start wrapping gifts it looks like a stuff bomb explodes. New toys, used – but saved – tissue paper, bows, and gift bags litter different rooms. A mountain of dirty laundry has grown since I haven’t thought about washing it for a few days.
With the new year, I long for a clean, fresh start.
If you’re like me in your desire to clean, I have good news for you – here are 19 homemade cleaning recipes for you to try. These suggestions are the best that Alternative Living Network bloggers have to offer from the past year. Enjoy. And happy cleaning!
