In an effort to save money, I have been trying my hand at making all types of homemade household cleaners.
And since I think trying to be frugal is
So, whenever I feel like it, on Fridays, I am going to share with you the different cleaners that I try making at home. Complete with step by step pictures, of course.;)
I will also always give full credit to the people, books, or blogs that I get these ideas from, because I will humbly tell you all right now, that I did not come up with any of these ideas by myself. I am simply a Frugal Fun Finds Follower. (Just ignore me, please. I do love alliteration though.)
I got the idea that I am sharing with you today from this great cookbook that I bought called Dining On A Dime.
The first cleaner that I made is a Counter-top Disinfectant.
Here is the "recipe."
These are all of the "ingredients" that I used, plus water, of course.
The first thing that I did was to add one fourth cup of vinegar to the spray bottle.
Then I added one half cup of rubbing alcohol.
Followed by just two tablespoons of ammonia.
And last, but not least, I filled the rest of the spray bottle with water.
Once the lid was screwed on tightly, I gently shook the bottle to mix all of the ingredients. I also labeled the spray bottle, so that I would not forget which type of cleaner was in it. (Of course, I've never forgotten anything like that, but I've heard stories.)
I used this cleaner to clean my kitchen counter tops and table, and it worked wonderfully. I would love to figure out how to add a citrus scent to it. Do you know how I could safely do that? If so, I would love to know.
Well, that's all the excitement for this post, folks! But don't despair, there will definitely be more. Some Friday in the future, I will show all of you how to make your very own homemade window and glass cleaner. (I bet you can't wait....) ;)
