I posted before about making our own Windex. I know not everyone wants to make their own cleaners, in fact, I didn’t make my own cleaners until this year. What I used to do was refill my cleaning spray bottles with a bulk product like Pine-Sol. I just like the smell of the orange Pine-Sol, plus I got a couple of large bottles of it for pretty cheap using a coupon (go here for their current coupon) and combining it with a bi-yearly cleaning supply sale. This refill method will work with many kinds of liquid cleaners, so pick one you love and let’s get started.

Refilling Cleaning Sprays

Step 1
Reuse an empty bottle of cleaning spray. You may rinse it if you like, especially if you are using a different scent.

Step 2

Purchase your favorite bulk liquid cleaner. Hopefully you had a coupon and bought it on sale!

Step 3

Using a small funnel, pour about 1 tablespoon of bulk liquid cleaner into the empty spray bottle.

Step 4

Slowly fill up the bottle with water. I let the water drizzle into the bottle very slowly for the least amount of foam.

 

NOTE:
You can do it the other way, put water in first and then cleaner, but I found it mixes itself if I put the cleaner in first.

What’s the Savings?

One 32 fl. oz. bottle of liquid spray cleaner = approx. $ 2.96 depending on the brand

One bottle of 48 fl. oz. bottle of PIne-Sol = $ 2.96 at my local Wal-mart (would be $ 1.96 with the current $1 off coupon)

1 Tablespoon = .5 fl. oz.

 
One 48 fl. oz. bottle of Pine-Sol will make 96 bottles of 32 fl. oz. cleaning spray for $ 2.96 (would be $ 1.96 with the current $1 off coupon)
vs.
96 bottles of cleaning spray at $ 2.96 = $ 284.16

My Cost = 2¢ for each 32 fl. oz. bottle of cleaner
