When Henry was born, I started looking for cleaners that were safer to have around the house. Through a series of searches, and trials, I arrived at my own version of a greener, child-friendly cleaner. As an added bonus, it's much more cost effective!
Carolyn's General Cleaner
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup distilled, white vinegar
- 1 tsp. dish soap
- 1 tbsp. rubbing alcohol
Pour all the above ingredients into a clean sprayer and shake. That's it! You can add a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
We use this cleaner on most hard surfaces and mirrors. It does a great job with baked-on, stove yuckies.
A few last things: Please do exercise caution will all cleaning products! I allow Henry to help me clean surfaces with this spray but only under my supervision. Also, I do realize there will be times when bleach is still needed.
I've been on the look out for a metal spray bottle but haven't found one with good reviews. This one is glass and can be found on Amazon.
