I love items that multitask, don’t you?
Instead of having a bunch of items that serve one little purpose each, I would prefer just one thing that covers a multitude of uses.
Like this all-purpose cleaner recipe I found.
One item, many uses.
I first made this a couple of months ago and quickly came to love its ability to wipe out many messes.
Just spray and wipe. Or, if you have a tougher mess, spray, let sit for a couple of minutes, and then wipe. I can’t tell you how many things this has cleaned up in a snap for me.
Just last week I had to make more, so I thought I’d share the recipe. You can whip it up in a few minutes at home!
What you need:
1 tsp washing soda
2 tsp Borax
2 TB white vinegar
2 1/2 C hot water
1/4 C castile soap
Heat water, then add Borax and washing soda and mix well until dissolved. Then add vinegar and castile soap. Pour into a spray bottle and you’re all set.
To me the secret weapon in this formula is the castile soap.
I purchased some Dr. Bronner’s castile soap from Amazon and highly recommend it. (I heard that Target sells this as well.) The label is a little weird, but don’t be put off by it. It works seriously well and comes in many scents. I prefer the peppermint, but have heard that there is other really good ones.
Have a great week everyone!
