All-Purpose Cleaning Wipes

VIDEO: This has to be my most favourite (and, frugal!) homemade cleaning product—All-Purpose Cleaning Wipes! It’s so easy to whip up a batch of these and keep them on hand for quick clean ups. They work great on laminate flooring, counter tops, appliances, and I’ve even used them for spot cleaning on my carpets. The best part?

    I love your website and have seen you on Steven and Chris. My Mom used to show us ways and means to be more concerned about the environment we live in. Being frugal certainly helps. Thank you for your ideas and keeping up this important tradition. Wish more people were involved in being frugal.
