Welcome to homemake your household! Green and natural household cleaners can get mightily expensive – but it’s super easy to make your own natural cleansers and household products at home with basic and readily available ingredients. I see their Windex and I raise them some lemon juice.
When I think about my taste in television, the words trashy, vampires, and would a 13 year old girl like it come to mind. The latest show to enter my portfolio: The Only Way Is Essex . Think The Hills meets The Jersey Shore meets British accents that are sometimes difficult to understand. Don’t get me wrong – the show is terrible. But it makes no apologies for being a series of fake set ups for us to watch – and it’s oddly addictive. I can’t look away. Curse you Hulu.
One of the characters has a beloved grandmother on the show who is always cooking, cleaning, and sharing her wisdom with her overly tan, not too bright grandchildren. And in the last episode I saw, Nanny Pat spoke to me. “You know what the best way to clean glass is?” she said, “vinegar and water.”
Until recently, I was still using commercial glass cleaner for my mirrors and windows. Before I started going au naturelle in the cleaning department, I had purchased an extra large bottle of the curious blue liquid and hadn’t parted with it because it felt wasteful. But because I now clean with things like apple cider vinegar and baking soda, when I used the glass cleaner, the smell was incredibly overwhelming. I wasn’t used to the chemical fragrance smell anymore. Nanny Pat to the rescue.
