DIY: simple green cleaning products


the amazing dallas weather this week has me up early, opening the windows, and motivated to do some premature spring cleaning. i also resolved a few weeks back to save more and be healthier in the new year, so today i scoured the world wide web for a few simple and non-toxic diy home cleaners i could make with items i already had.  these were the winners.  and they smell wonderful too!
