DIY All-Purpose Kitchen Cleaner

Save money on cleaners: Make your own!

I have saved a lot of money by making my own cleaners. I use borax, baking soda, vinegar and Dawn dishwashing liquid, plus water. I dissolve 1/4 cup of borax and baking soda in 1 cup of hot water, add 1 cup vinegar and a few teaspoons of Dawn. I put this into spray bottles, and add water to fill the bottle if necessary. I omit the vinegar in one spray bottle so I can use it to clean ceramic tile countertops.

This solution can be modified as needed by adding a little more or less of the ingredients. It is an all purpose cleaner, and works very well in kitchen, bathroom, and other areas. It even cleans burned on black stains off the stovetop without scratching.
