Since I was so inspired to make the set of homemade cleaners (with labels!) from The Toby Show and never got to make them for holiday gifts, I decided they would be the perfect thing to package up as an item for our preschool fund raising auction. Wouldn't you buy a set if someone had done all the hard work for you?
In her post Jonah Lisa reused old bottles, which is the greenest way. However, I wanted new bottles that were clean and pretty to entice people to bid a good price for them. I'll add some cute labels, include the necessary ingredients, and put it all in a basket.
To find my empty spray bottles I went to a Container Store. I found some simple ones made by Casabella. They weren't as cheap as some others I saw online, but it saved me some time to buy them locally.
I was excited to see another Casabella bottle at the store that was really cool—it had homemade cleaning recipes printed on it! Similar idea to what I am making, but I love that it is available for the mass market.
