Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner

[donotprint] I really don’t like to clean. Roombe, my new best friend, remains a great helper in this house. It’s been almost two months and I’ve decided that it’s one of the best investments we’ve made in gadgets. Unfortunately, Roombe can only clean floors.

In my quest to find homemade and safe cleaners I came across a great all-purpose cleaner. I’ve used it several times, including this morning’s cleaning of the bathrooms. It works great on shower soap scum and other areas in the bathroom and throughout the house. I love it because in addition to smelling great, I know what’s in it and it’s cheap! [/donotprint]

All-Purpose Cleaner [print_link]

1 Tablespoon Borax

3 Tablespoons Vinegar

Mix the above two.

Add 2 cups of water


Add 2 Tablespoon of dish soap and drop of peppermint

I still don’t like to clean, but it makes the job much easier. I also found that this is a great cleaner, but it still wouldn’t get the stove burners clean. I’ve tried about everything I could buy to clean that stove and decided I’d just try a paste of baking soda. It did a great job!  Do you have a favorite homemade cleaning supply you like to use?
