Shower Cleaner - I had previously pinned this, but now that I have tried it I am pinning it again. Seriously the easiest and best shower cleaner I have ever tried. Everything came off with no scrubbing. 1 cup vinegar (heated) mixed with 1 cup original blue Dawn. Spray on shower and let sit for 2 hours. Wipe off with a wet sponge.
5 easy, AWESOME homemade cleaning products. This saves me SO much money! These are also non-toxic and won't let off bad smells. This post gives recipes for all-purpose cleaner, glass cleaner, stain remover, soap scum cleaner (for tub and tiles), and a disinfectant. Awesome find!
Seriously?! -- Vinegar works as a wood stain when you add a metal object in the mix and let it sit in a glass container for a week. A handful of pennies will produce a beautiful pale Caribbean blue stain. A wad of steel wool will give you a rich reddish hue. A combination of tea and a metal object in vinegar will produce a black stain. Log this away for later.
MUST TRY... Pinterest user said: After months of experimenting with pinterest cleaning formulas, this is my favorite counter cleaner. I bought a spray bottle in the mop aisle at Walmart and wrote this recipe on it for easy reminder. :)T Make Your Own Homemade all purpose cleaner- Costs pennies a bottle!
Soak orange peels in vinegar for two weeks in a sealed mason jar then pour the vinegar into a spray bottle. Use as a non-toxic and yummy smelling "green" cleaner. I love using vinegar to clean with but have always wondered how to make it smell better - can't wait to do this!
Soap Scum Remover: Make a vinegar "gel" by thickening vinegar with cornstarch. The vinegar CLINGS to what ever you spray it on...thus gives it more time to work. A little detergent cuts grease. I heated 1 cup of vinegar and 1 T corn starch in the microwave for 2 minutes. Add 2 T dish detergent and put it in a spay bottle. Spray. Wait 1hr. Wipe. Rinse.
Homemade Window Cleaner 1 cup white vinegar 1 cup water 8 drops essential oil (I used grapefruit essential oil.) Combine all ingredients in a plastic spray bottle. Shake well before using. Use like Windex on glass and mirrors.
