So, I went ahead and did something that I swore I would not do.
I made some of my own homemade cleaning supplies.
In talking to other people and moms/parents, I’ve discovered that people do this for three main reasons. It’s cheaper, safer, and better for the environment. These are three pretty good reasons, I guess.
Most of the people I’ve personally asked about it do it’s for the “safety.” They all want to keep chemicals out of their houses and away from their children.
I’m not really sure that that’s my reason, though. Hey, I’m being honest — right? It’s not that I don’t want a safe environment for my baby. Because I do. And all of my cleaning supplies are in one locked cabinet that he has no access to. I don’t use bleach on his toys and then tell him to put them in his mouth. I use the harsher products on things that he more often than not doesn’t come in contact with.
But that’s besides the fact.
I was bored. We’re short on money. And I was curious. Those are my reasons.
