There are many ways to be frugal and to save money, and many prudent families already know the money that can be saved by making some of your own household products. Fantastic cleaning can be created from a base of bicarbonate of soda and vinegar, but there's also lots of other products that you can make from scratch and save money.

For an all purpose cleaner I mix 1 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid, two teaspoons of white vinegar and two cups of water in a spray bottle. Good for cleaning and deodorising the microwave and fridge and for cleaning hardy surfaces such as tiles and laminex. Wouldn't recommend it though for surfaces like stone which may be affected by the vinegar.

Sounds similar to the one I make, except I add some essential oil like eucalyptus or lavender.
I don't make my own; it just never occurs to me.
I use bicarb and vinegar for lots of things cleaning related, and use a solution of this plus a smidgen of washing liquid for mopping the floors and it comes up really well. I also use my own window cleaner and I'll make a paste of bicarb and vinegar for stubborn stains on things like tiles etc.
My friend has recently started making lots of her own shampoos, face packs and cleansers often using coconut oil as a base, and this is something I'm going to try. I tried to make some baby soap once but it wasn't a success....but I do love home made products.
Most things! I rarely buy when I can make it myself at a fraction of the price. I make my own all purpose spray for cleaning my kitchen, wood polish, air freshener, laundry liquid, dish washing powder (for the dishwasher) and I also make my own facial cleanser, olive oil soap, body scrubs and soy candles.
