Friday is cleaning day at my house (at least in theory!)…and every day is saving day! So I was thrilled a few years ago to come across a DIY cleaning solution that was guar-an-teed to work great. Now, you have to understand that in my experience ~ even though I’m a real DIY nut ~ most of the recipes I’ve tried over the years (even the ones guar-an-teed to work) have been miserable failures. (Think craftfail.com) But, ever-hopeful, and since I hate cleaning the bathroom anyway and am always on the lookout for something that will make it more tolerable, I thought I’d give this a try.
And I DO love this solution ~ it’s easy to make, easy to use, smells great and works great!
Here’s the recipe:
1 part blue Dawn
3 parts vinegar
couple of drops of essential oils (optional – I use lemon)
You can use this to clean the toilet (inside AND out), sink and counter, tub/shower and shower curtain. Wherever you use it, just make sure you can scrub and rinse off the solution. This does a GREAT job on soap scum and leaves your bathroom smelling great… (If you’re super-sensitive to smell, tho, try mixing up a small batch at first. If you find the smell offensive, use it IN the toilet and the smell will wash away when you flush…waste not – want not!)
Do you have any simple cleaning solutions? Please do share below!
Hey, since ya’ gotta clean anyway…why not save $$ at the same time?
