Frugal Friday: Swiffer Solution

It's a Frugal Friday!

Today's Frugal Friday tip is a recipe for the swiffer solution. We have all hard wood floors in our apartment and they can be a bitch to keep clean. It seems like every other day they need to be swept and swiffered. We were going through a lot of the solution and did not want to spend what little cash we had on swiffer cleaner.

After a little research on how to make cleaning products, we came up with this:

1 cup of water
1/4 cup of vinegar
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of scented oil

Every year when people don't know what to buy us for Christmas, we end up with an abundance of candles and scented oils. Don't get me wrong, I love candles and think they are wonderful gifts, but this house would smell like a weird garden with baked goods and cinnamon and fresh cotton if we used them all. So we decided to get creative and use the scented oil in the swiffer solution - it certainly helps to cover up the vinegar smell!.

We just keep refilling the bottle that originally came with our swiffer, so we just make a little at a time.  Good thing it's so easy!  If you are having a hard time getting the top off the swiffer solution bottle, try soaking it in really hot water, this should loosen it enough to unscrew.

Have a great weekend!!
