Life doesn't always work out the way you'd like. There are disappointments, broken expectations, dashed dreams.
Much like cleaning products. The infomercial promises amazing results, the before/after images astound, and then you try it on your own house and it doesn't quite work out like that.
It's disappointing experiences like this that cause trust issues.
Being a skeptic has made me curious about the all-natural, money-saving, DIY home cleaning methods which circulate on blogs and Pinterest like a good meme. They promise a simple process of mixing together a few common items from your cupboard to create an instant clean!
Do they work? Are they better or more convenient than store-bought cleaners? Can you actually save money in the process?
This month's series is all about DIY cleaning methods. Not a glamorous series -- certainly not as appetizing as macarons or as pretty as a craft. But part of the purpose of my Tried&Twisted blog is to test out new projects and to share if they are worth your time and effort.
So in preparation for Spring cleaning, allow me to test out these "great" ideas for you so you can save your own time, money, and a little elbow grease.
Check in with me every Friday this month as I put a new DIY cleaning project to the test.
- Vinegar Bath Tub Scrub
- Baking Soda Toilet Cleanse
- Vinegar and Baking Soda Stainless Steel Sink Scrub
- Vinegar and Baking Soda Shower Head Soak
- Mystery Topic?
Update: The winner for Mystery Topic is Bath Scrub!
See you on Friday!
