I've had multiple requests for my cleaner recipe (Erica asked a few years ago, and Nicole just recently asked after she saw me using it to clean up after Emmett, who vomited after "choking on a nut"). Here it is!!
Heavy-Duty All-Purpose Cleaner
1 Tablespoon white vinegar
1 Tablespoon Borax
1 Tablespoon dish detergent
1 gallon warm water
I mix this by the gallon and fill our squirt bottles with it. We have probably 8 bottles scattered around the house! This cleaner is for surfaces AND glass, so I have the kids use it for everything. I like that it doesn't have harsh chemicals, and it's so cheap that I don't mind having so many bottles around. Originally this recipe was used to save money (back when we were knee-deep in the Dave Ramsey plan) but even now that we're debt-free and in better financial shape, I still refuse to spend big bucks on cleaners!
Disclaimer: Marcus prefers the scented Method cleaners so yes, you will find those in our house also…but you won't find ME using them!!! ;o)
