  1. Grab our cookbook here to make your own homemade cleaners!:

  2. Great tips!!

  3. I only use papertowel for cleaning my garbage, compost and recycling area, inside oven and my toilet. I have cut down a lot on papertowel over the years. I only use 3-5 cleaners on a regular basis. Then I have a few other cleaners for occasional use I probably have 10 cleaners max in my house.

  4. Mmmmmmm very interesting. Thank youn

  5. When I was growing up in Europe windows would be cleaned with a drop of dish soap added to a bucket of water 😉 I believe the whole house can be cleaned with one those multipurpose cleaner like Mr.Clean. I buy big jag of it and use for many things!

  6. Wool balls with some essential oils makes a great dryer sheet replacement and as a bonus things dryer faster.

  7. We don’t use a lot of paper towels either waste of money to me

  8. When you use a cleaning spray, spray it lightly on the surface you are cleaning. Then, let it sit for a few minutes. Giving a cleaner time to work makes less scrubbing for you. I’ve seen people spray a cleaner on and then immediately wipe it right back off (waste of money), and repeat again and again. Most cleaners and disinfectants need a little sit time to be effective.

  9. Good tips!

  10. I make air freshener with about 20 drops of essential oil and water filled to the top of a spray bottle. It also works as a fabric freshener. So much nicer and cheaper than the name brands.

  11. Great tips! Fabric softener often irritates skin, particularly kids, I’ve never used it. I gotta get better on the paper towels. Bad for the planet and my wallet!

  12. White vinegar works wonders all over the house and very cheap. Stick to one multi-use product and use for most everything. Dont buy a different cleaner for every job. Buy concentrated and then dilute. Many people use WAY too much bleach and dont properly dilute. Use wool dryer balls instead of dryer sheets. Last forever. If you clean frequently, you shouldn’t have to use “heavy duty” cleaners. Use rags and cloths instead of sponges as well. Sponges get gross and you just throw them away.

  13. I use 1/2 cup of white vinegar as my fabric softener. After the clothes are dry, I promise, they do not smell like vinegar.

  14. Run your dishwasher without detergent and see all the soap coming up.

  15. Great tips ladies thank you for sharing 🙂

  16. I use rags for cleaning. Old clothes and towels work well. I use only 1 oz of laundry detergent for each load, and I have big loads.

  17. People use paper towels to dry their hands?!

    1. I’ve never understood that. You’re hands are clean after you wash them. Use a dish towel to dry them. I had to break my husband of his habit of using THREE paper towels to dry his hands!

    2. Jen’s Lemonade Life I’m guilty of using edge of my tee-shirt for that.

  18. What do you drain your fried food on and Pat meat dry before browning it if you don’t use a paper towel? I don’t get news paper or paper bags from the store

  19. I make a mix of dawn blue soap, bleach and water.

  20. Good tips. Also, I recycle Newspaper ads (those junk grocery ads you get in mail every week, as I haven’t bought an old school newspaper in years) and homemade vinegar/alcohol/dish detergent/bleach mixture in spray bottle for windows, mirrors & bathrooms…..Thanks guys

  21. Take a gallon size bucket of water… remove 2 cups and replace with vinegar and a squirt of Dawn.. you now have windshield washer fluid.

    1. Adele Etherton alcohol….is the winter mix. Vinegar is cheaper than alcohol… We buy vinegar by the gallon here so we only us alcohol when the weather gets stupid.

    2. same, except I use 90 proof alcohol

    3. HootOwl Holler in winter I replace the vinegar with a 16 oz bottle of isopropyl alcohol….at least 70%….it keeps it from freezing.

    4. peepla7 can this be used in the winter? I need something that will keep windshields from freezing in winter. Thx.

  22. I keep my paper towels sort of hidden. I’ve always used rags, although I bought mine from the grocery store. I know people who’ve always been super frugal but the moment they see something to wipe up it’s “where are your paper towels?” I’ve wondered sometimes if this was a marketing thing (where/when did this habit come from?). Personally, I need to work on measuring detergent and not spraying too much cleaner. One thing I do you didn’t mention here is reuse shopping bags for garbage bags. It’s saved me a lot of money over the years.

  23. Use vinegar and either coffee filters to wipe… Or you can use newspaper!
    My grandmother me and I promise til works!!

    1. Yes newspaper works great on my windows too

  24. I have cut back a lot on using paper towels since watching your channel. I use shop rags for napkins, for spills, whatever. They are washable.

  25. I use vinegar for a lot of cleaning tasks

    1. Posh Kitty yes! Also….makes hair soft and cuts through product build up.

    2. I use that for fabric softener or added to wash for odors

    3. vivi2873 I never said it was a disinfectant…I said I use it for a lot of cleaning tasks.

    4. vivi2873 Vinegar can be used as a safer bleach alternative for some applications, like cleaning. It is also biodegradable. However, vinegar is not a registered disinfectant and does not kill dangerous bacteria like staphylococcus. for most things vinegar is just fine, for other things, I have bleach.

    5. peepla7 vinegar is not a disinfectant.

  26. Hubby is the paper towel addict in my house. I’ve cut my cleaning supplies to basics – dilute soap and water for general cleaning. Vinegar for glass, baking soda/salt for scouring powder, citric acid powder for the toilet, and bleach or hydrogen peroxide for disinfectant.

  27. I don’t use dryer sheets or fabric softener either – but I do use a small spray bottle filled with half water half fabric softener and I use one single spray onto the washed clothes just before starting the dryer – works great for controlling static and it smells great – I like Mrs Meyers Basil.

    1. A. Downing my dryer is a rack.. mother nature does the rest

  28. Dawn liquid soap and vinegar are sooo good. I had hard water stains and most harsh chemicals that made me sick did not work . This did .
    I use it for my sink / glass shower doors / shower tiles /bathtub / toilet bowl .,, key is to spray with an old windex type of bottle and leave for 10 Min

  29. I purchased the cookbook – it’s great and full of so much more than recipes for food. Please everyone like these videos, subscribe and share this channel with others. Jill you are so beautiful you should consider modeling – I’m serious. God bless. 🤗🌸

    1. Thanks for the order!

  30. I don’t even bring paper towels into my house. Such a waste of money.

    1. Sandra Leishman same here

  31. Great tips! Smart ladies! ❤️

  32. Good video.

  33. LOVE this book! ❤️❤️❤️
