Safe at Home: Make Your Own Household Cleaner
If you've shopped for household cleaners lately you may have noticed that they fall into one of two categories: affordable, chemical-laced products, or super-expensive eco-friendly cleansers. However, here's a third option: make your own safe, nontoxic cleaner from ingredients you probably already have in the house.
Start with a clean, empty 32-oz. spray bottle. (I used an old Windex bottle.) Next, pour into the bottle 1 cup of rubbing alcohol and 2/3 cup of white vinegar. Then, top off the bottle with water.
Use the all-purpose spray to clean virtually any surface in and around the house, including kitchen and bath fittings and fixtures, windows and mirrors, painted doors and cabinets, wood furniture, and all types of hard flooring.
This homemade cleaner cuts through grease and grime, dries quickly without streaking, and costs just pennies to make. Try it and let me know what you think!
