|All Purpose Cleaning|
This superstar inexpensive homemade formula is as good for cleaning the kitchen sink, counters etc and the bathtub as it is for stainless steel appliances and shower stalls.
1/2 cup baking soda
Enough liquid soap or detergent to make a frosting / icing-like consistency
5 drops antibacterial essential oil such as lavender, tea tree oil, or rosemary (optional)
Pour the baking soda in a bowl, slowly pour in the liquid soap or detergent, stirring all the while, until the consistency reaches that of frosting. Scoop the creamy mixture onto a sponge, wash the surface, and rinse.
Mix equal parts of water and vinegar into a spray bottle, shake to combine and that’s it! You could even add a few drops of liquid ca stile soap. However, do not use vinegar on marble, granite, or other stone counter tops as it may etch the stone surface. Another option is to simply add some liquid ca stile soap to some water. Imagine that, soap and water! Here is another very effective All-Purpose cleaner ....
1 litre water
40ml eucalyptus oil
2 dessert spoons of washing soda
Mix in a spray bottle and use as a general household cleaner - or dilute in water to use as a floor cleaner.
Another option is to use good quality cleaning cloths. They hold so much moisture that they work great for everything that requires cleaning .... Windows, Mirrors, Glass, Ceramic Tile, Stainless Steel, Counter Tops and More. Good quality cloths can last for several years.
