Continuing with my theme of late….more homemade cleaners! I got an email recently from my dad with this recipe for a general all purpose cleaner and have found I really like it so far. (Thanks Dad!) According to my email, this recipe was featured on the Dr. Oz show. It is very simple, requiring few ingredients that are easy and cheap to find. Plus, no harsh chemicals!
All Purpose Cleaner
2 cups water
1 tablespoon of borax (in the laundry isle)
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon dish soap
1 drop of essential oil for fragrance (optional)
Mix it all in a spray bottle and clean away!

UPDATE: I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff. It cleans everything from counters to toilets to floors. I used it side by side with 409 at my mother-in-laws cleaning a stove that had been sitting on the porch for 6 months during a house remodel and this stuff was so much butter than the 409. I also add a few drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract when cleaning toilets and such for an antibacterial kick. Try it…really try it!
