Easy Peasy Homemade All Purpose Cleaner

I used to use 409. And then, when I got a dog who licked EVERYTHING, I switched to the "green" cleaners, but they really pinched my pocketbook. Then, Dr. Oz mentioned something on his show that my SIL shared with me.

A miracle?



Yep, that's right -- just plain old white vinegar.

Mix equal parts vinegar with water in a spray bottle and use it everywhere. It even cuts through grease (I used it on my stove last night). It does make the house smell a bit like a salad for a little bit, but I like the scent! LOL...

Some facts about why vinegar makes a great cleaner (it's even quite anti-bacterial!):

The acetic acid in vinegar kills viruses, germs, bacteria and mold. It also dissolves tough mineral deposits and stains like those found in sinks, toilets and tubs.

How cool is THAT? You can even clean up after raw meats or scrub your sink and potty.

And one HUGE bottle of vinegar? Costs practically nothing.

Frugal. Non-toxic. Easy.

What more could you ask for?

Go on... fix yourself up a bottle today.
