A FEW OF THE BEST DYI
INCREDIBLE HOMEMADE DIY GLASS CLEANER
1/4 c. rubbing alcohol
- 1/4 c. white vinegar
- 1 Tbsp cornstarch
- 2 c. warm water
Combine everything in a spray bottle, and shake well. Shake well before using, too, as the cornstarch might settle at the bottom (and subsequently plug the spray mechanism if it’s not mixed in well).
The total cost is under 0.50 cents Per Bottle! And works great!
Not to mention, it’s completely nontoxic, you can simply reuse your old glass cleaner bottle over and over and over again!
DYI GRANITE COUNTER CLEANER
- 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol
- 2 cups water
- 8 drops dawn dish soap
- scented oil of your choice
- Spray Bottle (Can be picked up for 99 cents at Wal-Mart)
- It is really easy to make, just add all the ingredients to the spray bottle
- It is safe to use on all your appliances and other countertops. You can use it to clean bathroom counters too. To help with the shine on the granite counters use a soft cloth or paper towels. I much prefer the less than 50 cents it cost to make this compared to the $7 for granite cleaner at the store.
DIY STAIN LAUNDRY STAIN REMOVER
- one part Dawn dish washing liquid soap
- two parts hydrogen peroxide
- 1-2 tablespoons baking soda
- In a small bowl, mix the ingredients together.
- Use a small brush to scrub the mixture into the stained area. Rinse, then launder as usual.
- For tougher stains, let the mixture sit on the stained garment for an hour or so, then launder. Or treat the area a few times before laundering.
I recommend doing a test on an inconspicuous part of the garment first to make sure that the spot remover will not harm the fabric. Hydrogen peroxide can be tough on fabric. Peroxide is sensitive to light, hence the dark bottles, so it is best to mix this up in small amounts as needed for each time.
*Always test a small area of whatever you are cleaning first with any homemade products as you should for store bought ones too*
