Cleaning for Less
By Nikki Willhite
When I was in the hospital having my 3rd
son, my mother-in-law came to help out. She was a war bride and came to this
country from Germany. As much as I hate to stereotype- the German people are a
very cleanly people.
She had also lived through WWII, and knew
how to do without. I couldn't believe it when I came home from the hospital. My
house was literally sparkling. When I asked her what she had done, she
replied she had "cleaned it". "
"Yes, but, what did you use?", was what I
wanted to know.
Her answer- "Ammonia"- She had used
nothing but a bottle of ammonia- for Everything!
When I think of how many cleaning products
there are on our supermarket shelves, and how much they cost......it is clear
that we could save a lot of money on our cleaning supplies by not being "lured"
into buying all the cleaning products advertised over and over to us .
