In my quest to find homemade cleaning solutions I have found my two favorites. My first is the Orange Vinegar cleaner and my second favorite is….. Blue dawn and vinegar. YEP, Vinegar is MAGIC! I really love learning about all of this. Its new to me and fascinating.
Here is what you’ll need for this cleaning solution: Blue Dawn (I buy the concentrate, so the big bottle for $3.00) and White distilled Vinegar $2.50 (I have rounded up the numbers for tax), a spray bottle (you can find them at the dollar store for… $1.00), and some scrub sponges so you can hang them in the shower if you want.
I have tried the cleaning solution two ways. Bringing the vinegar to a boil then adding the Dawn OR not boiling the vinegar. Either way the results are the same. 1 1/2 c. vinegar and 1 c. blue Dawn. Pour into your spray bottle, tilted, not shaken. Meaning, if you shake the bottle you’ll get more foam and it won’t come out of the spray bottle. Tilt the bottle back and forth till its mixed.
This is what you’ll end up with.
Two ingredients that you’d already have in your house for a combined total of $7.00 spent on items. A concentrate amount of cleaner that will last about 6 months, depending on how much you deep clean.
I used this cleaner on my bathrooms, walls, dried up apple sauce on the wall and base boards, marker on the wall, blinds, the floor. I’ve been using this over a 3 month period now and I LOVE IT!!
