Let me just start off by saying I am very skeptical about going waste free when it comes to cleaning our apartment. One time I saw this DIY microwave cleaning video on YouTube that said to put a bowl of half water, half vinegar into the microwave and cook it for about 5 minutes. I really don’t think I am exaggerating when I say it was one of the worst smells that has ever happened, ever. Not only was the smell very offensive, but it didn’t even clean my microwave any better than just a clorox wipe.
But now that I really want to commit to going trash free, most importantly, plastic free – vinegar and I need to start getting reacquainted. I found the video below and will be using it as my guide as I try and clean my apartment with vinegar.
While researching a zero waste life, a lot of people have said don’t go into it immediately and throw everything away. I am definitely taking that route into my new trash free life. I don’t want to waste money by throwing away everything just because it’s plastic. Below are all of my cleaning products I currently have under my sink.
I don’t even know where half this stuff even came from, but I will wait to go through all them before I start making my own cleaning products. Might be a couple months, but I am excited to start making them and choosing my own scents.
