I am super excited to share some homemade cleaners that I made this week. I have wanted to make these for years, but was overwhelmed. I honestly was a little afraid that I would spend the time (and money) and be disappointed by the results. I finally broke down and did some research. I found 3 recipes for cleaners that I made with what I already had at home. I will try more later and share!
All Purpose Cleaner- daily cleaning
This is my FAVORITE cleaner so far! It smells so good and it contains nothing harmful!
I filled the spray bottle 3/4 of the way full with warm water. I then added a about half a cup of dish soap. I have read that Ivory soap leaves less residue, but I have had none with Dawn. Shake well!
Disinfecting Spray- cleaning things with lots of germs or really dirty grim. This has a alcohol smell, but it does not linger.
1 part rubbing alcohol to one part water. This bottle had to be changed because it did not have the straw part in it. My luck!
Bathroom Cleaner- for the bathroom. I sprinkle baking soda in the toilet/shower floor and let it sit for a few minutes. I then spray the bathroom cleaner and it works wonderfully!
1 part dish soap to one part white vinegar. This does not give off much of a smell.
Here they are! The bottles were $1 at Target and I just wrote on them with a permanent marker. I am loving them!! I plan on making dusting polish, stainless steel cleaner, and glass cleaner. Then I can throw all my other cleaners away!
