Homemade Household Cleaner / Kitchen Tip

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Use this easy homemade household cleaner in your house and you will save money!

This week for our Kitchen Tip I'd thought I'd share with you the "recipe" I use to make my Homemade All Purpose Household Cleaner.  It's really easy and does a really good job.  
 I've been using this household cleaner for years and I know I've saved a lot money!  
I use it for our toilets, floors and countertops.  Yes, it works beautifully on our quartz countertops. 
 I've even used this cleaner to wash our windows...no streaks! 
I usually make four bottles and keep them under the bathroom sinks and my kitchen sink.

Homemade All Purpose Household Cleaner

  • 2 Tbs. ammonia
  • 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
  • 1/4 vinegar

Add the ingredients to a plastic spray bottle.
Add enough water to fill the bottle completely.


  1. I am going to try this!! I am all about making my own cleaner and I haven't tried this one. Pinning. Thanks for sharing! I would love if you linked this up to Totally Terrific Tuesday this week! Hope to see you there.


  2. This is a good recipe...I would never of thought to add alchohol!! Thanks for sharing!!
    Hey I would love for you to share your stuff at My 2 Favorite Things on Thursday Link party!! Hope to see you there!!

  3. I've been meaning to make more of my own cleaners. I do make laundry detergent sometimes. I just need to sit down and do it. Thanks for the tip!

  4. Yes the alcohol helps kill those germs! I don't usually use ammonia, but tea tree oil instead. Love homemade cleaners - they are so much cheaper and get the job done! Thanks for linking up to Show Me Saturday.

  5. I am always looking for more natural cleaners, thanks for sharing this one!

  6. Thanks for the recipe! Thanks for linking up to Merry Monday! Pinned! Have a great week!

  7. Thank you so much for sharing this awesome recipe, I need to try making it!

  8. How interesting! I typically use a vinegar/water or an h2o2/water mix. Because the littles are still so young, I probably won't change that, but this ammonia mixture seems like a good cleaner. :)

  9. Thank you for this awesome tip.
    Thank you for joining us at Thoughts of Home.
    Hope to see you next week too.
