$2.00 Homemade Multi-purpose Cleaner


I came across this multi-purpose cleaner on Pinterest. I had all of the ingredients and decided to try it, I think I used the whole bottle in one day cleaning everything from windows to countertops all the way down to my floors. I was amazed at how well it worked and how cheap it would be to replace my other cleaners with this one concoction. This one is defiantly worth a try, for around $2 you can make your own multi-purpose cleaner that is safe to use around children and pets, has virtually no smell (slight vinegar smell that goes away quickly) and is CHEAP! The rubbing alcohol makes the cleaner streak free plus its a natural disinfectant and degreaser which makes it great for cleaning any surface. White vinegar is a natural deodorizer and sanitizer. The combination of the two makes this multi-purpose cleaner great for any household chore!

I buy my rubbing alcohol and white vinegar at Dollar Tree so it costs me $2.00 plus tax. These products may be slightly higher or lower at your grocery store.

Mix 1 cup of white vinegar, 1 cup of rubbing alcohol and 1 cup of water together in a spray bottle (use an old Windex bottle). Once the mixture settles, add 2-3 drops of dishwashing liquid. This increases the degreasing and disinfecting qualities. Shake lightly (it will bubble), once its all settled its ready to use. Clean, clean, clean away!

*If you don’t like the vinegar smell or would like this cleaner to have a lasting smell, you could add a few drops of any essential oil to the mixture*
