I've been making my own homemade cleaning solutions for at least 11 years now, here are a few of my favorites...

What is Sal Suds?

Sal Suds is a plant based, concentrated all-purpose cleaner made by Dr. Bronners. Dr. Bronner's also makes one of my other favorite plant base cleaners that I use in tons of my cleaning recipes, Castile soap. The difference between Sal Suds and Castile soap is that Castile soap is a true mineral based soap that is primarily made for the body, but can be used in cleaning recipes while Sal Suds is a biodegradable household cleaner that is only used for cleaning surfaces that won't leave streaks, doesn't react to hard water and leaves surfaces clean and sparkly!
