A Clean Home without Breaking the Bank

A Clean Home without Breaking the Bank

A clean home.  We all want one and would love to have our kiddos pitch in, but with toxic chemicals in every cleaning product on the market, cleaning your home has probably fallen to mom duty.  Or if you were lucky, a cleaning service!

That’s how it was for years in our home.  We’d ask the kids to help, but each time they did, they’d end up coughing from the smell of the cleaners, EVEN with the bathroom fans on and using expensive “green” cleaning products.  No mom wants to hear their child coughing, even if it is to help clean the toilets!

Well that’s a thing of the past now!

For the last 6 months we’ve been using Thieves Household Cleaner to clean windows, mirrors, tubs, toilets, counters, tables, sinks, stoves, wood floors, dusting, carpets, rugs, clothing, dishwashers, etc!
