- Gradually replace store-bought products with homemade ones
- Reduce packaging waste
Stretch goal: use only homemade cleaning products
My approach to cleaning products has always been pretty minimalist: vinegar, lemon juice and baking soda cover a lot of ground. I stay far away from bleach and any product containing the stuff.
Still, I continue to buy dish soap and toilet cleaner - primarily method products. But with my 2016 goals in mind, I bought my first bottle of castile soap about a month ago. And I got to open it this weekend when I used up the last of my dish soap.
And that was it really. I funneled the solution into my old owl soap dispenser and tested it on a pile of dirty dishes. It worked the way I'd want dish soap to work. And I used the little that would fit into the soap dispenser to clean the bath tub and sink. They're shinier than they've been in a while. So. Ok. I guess I'm a new convert!
