Awesome granite counter cleaner! 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol, 3 drops of dishwashing liquid, and 1 cup of water mixed in a spray bottle. I added a few drops of vanilla oil just to make it smell nicer. :)
A great recipe for cleaning car upholstery: Combine 6 tablespoons soap flakes (from a bar of Fels Naptha or Linda's soap found in the laundry aisle) with 2 tablespoons Borax--add 1 pint boiling water until ingredients dissolve. Let cool, then whip until a 'foam' is created. You can then brush it directly onto the fabric and wipe away with a damp sponge or cloth.
