Works For Me Wednesday

Today's tips from me are easy cleaning solutions. These are good if you are trying to save money or if you just run out of your favorite cleaner and need a something quick in its place.

First, if you have stainless steel appliances you can use white vinegar to clean them. It takes off fingerprints and whatever is stuck to them and leaves them shiny. I just love this tip.

Also for other cleaners recipes:
All Purpose Cleaner
1 Gal. water
1 cup ammonia
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup baking soda
Pour in a spay bottle to clean shower, toilets and sinks.

Daily Shower
8 oz concentrate cleaner ( such as Lysol)
16 oz isopropyl alcohol
Mix the 2 cleaners in a gallon bucket or jug. Add enough water to make a gallon. Pour in a spray bottle. Clean your shower well before using. Use this spray for daily use to keep off water deposit and soap scum.

Stain Pre Treater
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup ammonia
1/2 Wisk
1/2 water
Mix everything in a spray bottle and store. Spray on grease and food spots and wash as you normally would.
