Homemade Eco-friendly Cleaners Recipes

I was talking to a friend the other day and she was asking me about how I make my household cleaners so I thought I would post them for Make Something Monday. I purchased all of the bottles at a dollar store and made the labels myself. They honestly work just as good as store bought cleaners if not better. And, there is the added benefit of no toxic chemicals, which is why I make them. Oh, and they are much cheaper than store bought. I spent $30 for all of the materials and ingredients and I have enough to make cleaners for a year or longer! Here are the recipes that I use.

1 cup distilled white vinegar
2 cups water
1/2 tsp dish soap
