I have this thing about cleaning.  It drives me crazy to see dust and gunk built up around the home, and I try to stay on top of the daily house chores as best as possible.  However, the daily routine and upkeep of home is definitely not easy on the budget over time.  Over the counter cleaners are not cheap.  We all know that.  So why not make your own?  It may seem like a bit of a hassle, but all of those famous cleaning products are not as complicated as you may think.

This post from The Repo Woman has put together 10 recipes for you to make your own “copycat” cleaning recipes.  If I had known they were this simple to put together, I would have been doing this a long time ago.

Tile grout has got to be one of the hardest things to keep clean in a home.  At least for me, it is.  We are now in our second home, and have had tile in both homes, both of which had a sealer treatment applied to the tile grout, resulting in my extreme disappointment that it didn’t work as well as I had hoped.

Regardless of how well you clean your floors, and what types of mop you use, the grout spaces still get stained and show the dirt and residue from daily living.  I came across this post from  the blog April’s Opinion a few years ago and figured it was worth a shot.  I was absolutely shocked at how well it works and it took no time at all to convince my parents to do the same technique in their own home.

Try it out and see what you think.
