7 Frugal Budget Cleaning Creations to Save Thousands

Laundry detergent, fabric softeners, dishwasher soap and stain removers! The list of cleaning products you buy every month seems to go on forever.

But you can get your cleaning done on the cheap using homemade cleaning creations and stuff you’ve already got around the house.

I’ve cleaned for years using vinegar, baking soda and ammonia and literally saved thousands of dollars. Just these three items can replace nearly all of your expensive cleaning products.

Frugal Budget Cleaning for your Clothes

I spend about just $12 a year in laundry detergent. Yes, just $12 bucks to make five gallons of my frugal budget laundry detergent. 

You’ll need: – ½ cup Borax – 1 cup of Arm & Hammer Washing Soda – 1 bar of Fels-Naptha Soap – 5 gallon bucket with a lid or five milk gallon jug

Be sure to use ‘washing soda’ and not baking soda, not the same thing. You can find all of these at most groceries stores and it shouldn’t cost much more than ten bucks for the whole batch.

My favorite frugal budget furniture polish is plain mayonnaise. I know, sounds pretty disgusting but mayonnaise contains all the oils you need to make your wood shine.

It also moisturizes the wood so it doesn´t dry out. Just dab a little on a rag and the vinegar, eggs and oil in the mayonnaise will do the work. You can also use black tea, white vinegar and olive oil for a great frugal budget furniture cleaner.
