I always have vinegar, baking soda, salt, castile soap (bar and liquid), washing soda, coconut oil, and borax on hand at home. These products cover almost all of my house cleaning and laundry needs. Baking soda, coconut oil and castile soap are great self-care products as well. I spend under $50.00/ year combined on laundry detergent, dish washer detergent, dish soap, cleaning solutions, baby shampoo/ bath wash, and deodorant. Low cost and earth friendly.
