I do not like cleaning, but I love a clean house. So the easier the cleaning is, the better.  And these 8 DIY recipes make cleaning very easy! The lemon essential oil, vinegar, and other natural ingredients do most of the work for me.  Love that! And it’s so easy to make these cleaning supplies.  They’re made from things you probably already have in your kitchen.  I love that because there’s no stress if I run out of a cleaner.  I simply whip up another batch in about a minute. .
