I have been reading about this type of home made cleaner for quite sometime and thought, as I am starting my spring cleaning I would give this all purpose cleaner, a red hot go. I already had the ingredients in the house and it took very little time to put together, all the frugal things I love, frugal in time and money!
So, apparently you can use this cleaner on so many things like-kitchen benches and sinks, the toilet and showers, laundry stains and general laundry washing, floor and wall tiles, and even as a carpet cleaner. As this is a, new to me, cleaner I can't tell you yet, how well it works, but I will let you know what I think in the future.
The only things it is not suitable for is timber surfaces as it could damage the finish and mirrors, as the eucalyptus oil will leave smudgy marks.
|Ingredients for home made all purpose cleaner-from top right|
300 mls home brand vinegar, 2 tablespoon eucalyptus oil, 60 mls dish washing liquid, 3 tablespoons washing soda and 1.5 litres of water
|Heat 1 cup of the water in the microwave for 2 minutes, until very hot, add the washing soda|
|And mix to dissolve. Add to a clean 2 litre container|
|Add remaining ingredients into the 2 litre bottle and fill up with tap water. Now, give it a really good shake to mix it well.|
|Decant into a suitable spray bottle, I have just recycled one I already had|
