What kinds of products do you use? How much do you spend to clean your home?

Baking soda, vinegar and Dr. Bronner's castile soap. I also buy the occasional bottle of bleach, comet and clorox wipes (for the bathroom). I probably spend less than $30 every 4-5 months on my cleaning supplies.

I usually make my own. But they had a killer sale on kitchen cleaners a month ago and I got Clorox wipes and spray, 2 of each and a couple febreeze air fresheners for $10+ tax. With how bad the flu/cold season is this year I justified it.

I use baking soda, vinegar, $1 bottle of all-purpose cleaner (for that good smell), dollar store magic erasers, Dawn dishsoap as a degreaser....those few things pretty much do it.

Borax and vinegar mostly. I use essential oils to make the mixes smell prettier. I occasionally splurge for Clorox wipes.

 I use washing soda, borax, vinegar, dawn dish soap, baking soda, peroxide, oxi clean and water for almost all my cleaning needs.

Not all together of course. Combos of the above.
