Homemade Household Cleaner...

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Today's "recipe" is a different kind than you're used to seeing here.
It's an EASY Homemade Household Cleaner.

I've been using this cleaner for YEARS.

Let me tell you it is the BEST.

It's the ONLY cleaner I use.  

I make four bottles.  
One under my kitchen sink and the other three under the bathroom sinks.  

I can only imagine how much money it has saved us since I've been using it.  

Give it a try!

Fill a spray bottle with the following:

2 Tbs. ammonia

1/2 cup rubbing alcohol

1/4 cup vinegar

Add enough water to fill the bottle. 

Spray and use and ENJOY!


  1. I make a very similar cleaner, I just have a tad of Dawn rather than the vinegar in mine. Don't you love that stuff. Works on my ceramic stovetop, windows, countertops, EVERYthing. Thanks for posting the recipe for those who are still spending money on store cleaner. There's no need to do that any longer. This works amazingly well!

    P.S. Weeds don't grow in my garden wherever I have carpet laid down. :-)

  2. Thanks so much for the "recipe." Always looking for ways to save money!

  3. I'm going to try this...thanks for posting!


  4. Definitely worth a try! Thanks for the recipe!

    Have a great day

  5. I usually use just straight vinegar. I would love a little added power. Going to try this!

  6. I will definitely have to make some of this, Lois. I'm always up for a new cleaner that works wonders!

  7. I can't imagine all the money that you save! Those store cleaners cost so much and they all work about the same.

  8. I will have to remember to try this. Thank you!

  9. Will definitely try it :)

    I just use simple vinegar infused with either lemon, orange rinds, or lavender :) Great cleaner too.

    Thank you for your kind words this morning, I appreciate them so much :)

  10. It's nice to know that this really works. I've seen similar recipes and been tempted to try them. Now I will. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Sounds simple to make and economical, too. I think all those ingredients would certainly kill the germs! Thanks, Lois, for sharing!

  12. Well, Lois, you have given me another great recipe! Thank you, thank you! :)

  13. My Mom used to make something similar when I was a kid. Cleaner is so expensive to buy that I am sure you are saving a ton of cash.

  14. Okay girl - does this really work? Sounds too easy. sandie

  15. Thanks for the cleaner recipe, I'll have to give it a try!

  16. This sounds like it would make a wonderful cleaner...definitely going to give it a try. HUGS
