I think the secret to finding alternatives to conventional cleaning products is finding a product or DIY recipe that works just as well (most often better) and making a simple swap. I have a free printable for you today with my favorite cleaning and laundry swaps. These simple, safe, and natural cleaning recipes + laundry swaps are some of my favorite alternatives to traditional and often harmful products.
