All-Purpose Cleaner (Fantastic Cleaner)
1/2 teaspoon washing soda
2 teaspoons borax
1/2 teaspoon liquid soap or detergent
2 cups hot water
Combine the washing soda, borax, and soap in a spray bottle. pour in the hot water (it will dissolve the minerals), screw on the lid, and shake to completely blend and dissolve. Spritz every 6 inches or so of surface once or twice, wiping off the cleanser with a rag as you go. For tough dirt, leave the cleanser on for a few minutes before wiping it off.
Shake the bottle each time before using.
Shelf Life: Indefinite
Storage: Leave in a labelled spray bottle
The first time I tried this, I used the Dawn dishwashing soap we had. It worked great with that. Then I tried it with Dr. Bronner's Lavender Liquid castile soap. Wow, the cleaner still works great, and now it smells great too!
Please note! Baking Soda is NOT the same as Washing Soda. I found the Arm & Hammer washing soda in the laundry aisle of my grocery store.
This is natural, powerful, and CHEAP! :)
