Make Your Own All Purpose Cleaner

04 January 2010
I've seen several ideas on how to make your own all purpose/multi-surface cleaner, so I decided to experiment until I found a mixture that suited my needs. I came up with a very effective, incredibly thrifty mixture that I adore.

Take a clean spray bottle and add:

1 Tablespoon Borax
4 Tablespoons White Vinegar
10 drops of your favorite essential oil

Add 32 ounces of hot water, then shake liberally. This is a fantastic cleaner that does the job without a lot of harsh chemicals. Plus, it's very easy on the pocket book. I really like how well it cleans.

I totally make my own girl. I make my own essential oils by boiling the herb and draining with a strainer and paper towel. My Dh won't buy the essential oils in the store for me.
