It’s not necessary to buy all those chemical filled cleaners and sprays when you want to shine up your car and make it pretty. Just because a bottle says “car wash” on it, doesn’t make it a better soap for your car. It’s just marketing.

When I was making the switch from the commercial brand name cleaners I grew up with, to the natural ingredient homemade cleaners I now use in my own home, I had a tough time adjusting to the lack of disinfectants. I came from a Clorox and Lysol household where I felt that if I did not use those cleaning products, evil germs were microscopically waiting around to infect us with disease.
