My favorite is the Insect Repellent Spray for sure because I really do not like the chemical smell and greasy feel that most store bought bug sprays have. I love that these items can be made pretty inexpensively with household items and that they don’t contain tons of ingredients that I can’t even pronounce!
As you know, I share tons of DIY Cleaning Recipes. I often get asked what products I would buy if I didn’t make my own, and I totally get that! I don’t always have time or want to make my own, so when I don’t, I buy Mrs. Meyer’s brand cleaning products. Right now Grove Collaborative is having an amazing deal, and this is the last day you can score it…
