This post is for all those who own Chemistry Hacks for Home and Outdoors. I wanted to share a post dedicated to the best all-purpose DIY Cleaner because it has dozens and dozens of uses that I have been experimenting with.
When I was testing out this solution, it was originally for a granite cleaner or other natural stones.
The elements I wanted to create were a disinfectant, scrubbing power, and something that would shine the surface.
It’s amazing how you can put the exact same items together and get something totally different. The ratio is so important when you make homemade cleaners and solutions.
When I finally got something that worked perfect, I kept a bottle sitting around the kitchen.
I started using it for everything and testing out what it worked on.
Today is a list of ALL the neat things you can actually use this for. I can’t share the recipe in the post because it is an exclusive recipe in the book, but you can save this post for later if you decide to get the book.
This cleaner is also a key component in cleaning natural stone shower tile!
I keep a bottle of this in my office because my entire desk is glass. Glass gets so dirty, and can be really hard to clean. This cleaner is perfect and streak free. (Also cleans computer monitor)
My new favorite way to clean decorative pillows like couch pillows, throw pillows, and other things that aren’t the easiest to put in the washing machine. I use this! First, I spray the entire pillow surface, the scrub it lightly with a sponge or microfiber cloth. Next, pop it in the dryer for about 10 minutes just to fluff and dry the surface. Not only does it fluff the pillow up, but it cleans stains and smells clean afterwards.
I also use it to clean all types of couch fabrics. You can even use this on suede. Spray it on stains and scrub with a soft sponge or cloth. Or spray all over couch fabric to freshen and clean.
Try this out for vehicle fabric too like seats, floorboards, etc.
This is my favorite carpet cleaner that I use all the time. Sometimes, I don’t have the time to do a full out clean though. And with a dog (who throws up #dogmomproblems), I wanted something quick. Now, when I see a stain. I spray H202 on it (Hydrogen peroxide), then this cleaner on top. Allow it to sit, scrub with a sponge, and let it dry.
It works every time.
It is the time of year for gnats and fruit flies in the house! Guess what? This works on both! And it is safe on plants and foods, so you don’t have to worry about it killing anything else.
I first used this on those gnats that fly around house plants. I had some sitting around the soil of my favorite plant. I sprayed this cleaner on top of the soil. Not only did it kill the gnats and keep them away, it seemed to really boost the plant itself. Within a few days, the plant had grown! (So weird, but it did!) Read this post for my indoor houseplant care tips!
We had some fruit flies around the bananas, I just sprayed them and the area with this. They died and it deterred further ones from coming around.
You can also use it on those little sugar ants that come around.
I continue to test this solution on everything, so keep the post! It will be updated each time I find something new it can be used for!
If you own the eBook, and have used this solution found on page 13 (granite cleaner), let me know what you have used it for!
