I have started making my own household cleaning products. I have been using this all purpose cleaner recipe, using vinegar and a few other items for awhile now. I must say it works really well, I wish I tried this long ago and it’s kind to our budget, saving us money. I use this cleaner in the kitchen particularly and general wipe downs around the home.
Step 1: Gather all ingredients. Jug, spray bottle, hot water, detergent, vinegar and borax. Borax can be found at ‘some’ supermarkets, however I found mine at Bunnings. I purchased the Jug and Spray Bottle from Howards Storage World. The jug is perfect for household cleaners (as well as drinks in the fridge as it has a no spill lid). I make up a batch of the ‘all purpose cleaner’ in the jug and refill the spray bottle when needed. Both these items can be found at your local Howards Storage World Store.
Step 2: Measure ingredients and place into jug, mix to combine
Step 3: Fill jug with tap water. Use a funnel to pour into spray bottle.
Step 4: Don’t forget to label jug and spray bottle
