All Purpose Cleaner


Making your own all purpose  cleaner is so inexpensive that you'll never want to go back to buying it again!  It cleans very well and  is super easy to mix together.

It's perfect to refill your spray bottles and to use for cleaning floors, store the extra in an empty milk or water jug and label.

All Purpose Cleaner:
1 gallon hot water
1/4 cup sudsy  ammonia
1/4 cup vinegar
1 tablespoon baking soda

  1. I make my own all purpose cleaner as well. I feel better about knowing the ingredients. Yours seems very simple! Love that! What is sudsy ammonia? You can find my recipe here http://www.townsend-house.com/2012/02/all-purpose-cleaner-recipe.html

    1. Great question Heather! There are two kinds of ammonia: Regular also known as clear or non sudsy ammonia and sudsy ammonia. Regular ammonia does not streak and is perfect for windows, mirrors and chrome. Sudsy ammonia has a touch of detergent in it and is great for cleaning grime and dirt. If you can't find Sudsy ammonia in your store, use the same amount of regular ammonia but put in a squirt of liquid dish soap (NO BLEACH IN IT!)to the recipe.
      Thanks for stopping by, I'm hopping over to visit your blog!
