Homemade Cleaner

Do you have to do some cleaning this weekend? I sure do so here are some homemade cleaners!

All-Purpose Cleaner
This cleaner you make right in your spray bottle

2T vinegar

1 t Borax

Hot water

a few drops of a mild dish detergent

10 drops of essential oil, optional

In a 16 spray bottle put vinegar, borax and hot water. Swish around until borax has dissolved. Add the drops of dish detergent and fill the rest of the bottle with water. Add the essential oil.

Soft Scrubbing Type Cleaners

There are no measurements necessary for this one. Simply put a small amount of baking soda in a bowl and add liquid dish detergent until you have smooth paste or frosting like substance. This very well on sinks and counters and won’t scratch the surface.

Homemade Window Cleaner

This one can be made right in your spray bottle.
1/2 t mild dish detergent

3T vinegar

2 cups water

Put all these ingredients into a spray bottle. Shake this up some and use it just like the commercial variety.

Wood Polish:

1/4 c. vinegar
1/2 c. olive oil

Mix Together and rub on lightly with a soft towel.
Please note, use sparingly as to not damage fine wood surfaces, you might try a test spot first.
