Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner


I love using vinegar for cleaning just about everything!  All around the house, we have spray bottles filled with straight vinegar we use for a multi-purpose cleaner on windows, mirrors, counters, floors, and so much more!  Vinegar is not only a great grease cutter and cleaner, but it kills bacteria, mold, and germs, too!  

It's safe to use around people and animals and even an environmental friendly way to clean.  It's also way less expensive than traditional chemical cleaners.

Yes, there is a "vinegar odor" when you use it, but it goes away quickly.  I don't mind the odor and remind myself it is also an air neutralizer.

Because I use it so often in the child care area, I've made a more nose-friendly version:

1 part water
1 part vinegar
40-50 drops of lemon oil
(I only had lime oil available, so I used that)

Put in a spray bottle and shake lightly.  It has tamed that vinegar odor some and has a more lime scent.  Just perfect for general cleaning around the child care.
