I’m all for speed and ease when it comes to cleaning. As I often say – I don’t want to spend a whole day cleaning when I can keep my house ticking over with a few little bits every day.
I want everything to be fast and easy and the same goes for my cleaning products. I want to use one thing in every room without having to look at the bottle and figure out which room or task it is for and what I can’t use it on. I struggle to find that in the cleaning aisles so I make my own.
So here goes here’s how to make your own multi-purpose cleaning spray.
How to make multi-purpose cleaning spray
Note – It’s pretty easy and can be used on most everything apart from gold or brass (to my knowledge) but do please spot test if you’re worried it may damage something.
What you will need
- A spray bottle (you can buy one in Ikea or even from most pound shops. You can even reuse one you already have from a previous product)
- White distilled vinegar
- Washing up liquid
1. Pour 100ml vinegar into the bottle.
2. Follow that with 200ml cold water.
3. Add 1/4 a teaspoon of washing up liquid.
And there you go. Spray on your cloth and use pretty much anywhere in your home. You can also try it without the washing up liquid but it does help cut through grease so it is particuarly helpful in the kitchen.
