Kitchen cleaning tips

Re: Kitchen cleaning tips

Interesting that this conversation has come up..
I've just given my bench tops a good going over a few days ago..
I took everything off the tops and got into those nasty corners that always get missed and behind various items and pieces of equipment..

Now I haven't used a commercial surface spray cleaner for decades..I make my own!
It does an excellent job on grease and works better that most commercial cleaners..

If anyone's not happy with there spray cleaner, this is a good alternative..

Here is the formula..
1.5 litre water (1 cup boiled)
300ml vinegar
60ml dishwashing liquid
25ml eucalyptus oil
3 dessertspoons "Lectric" soda (washing soda)

Mix washing soda with about 1 cup boiling water to dissolve, add remaining ingredients, pour into a
2 litre bottle (I use the plastic vinegar ones).

To use..
This nearly fills the 2 litre bottle, then I decant into spray bottles for benches and laundry..
It's also can be used in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry, makes short work of outdoor furniture and
barbecues, it even cleans up joggers and dirty sport shoes. Use it in the toilet, on floors, to clean
painted surfaces, to clean showers and tiled surfaces.

Happy cleaning!

Many thanks for sharing @Prof


I wonder whether other community members have their own recipes for D.I.Y. cleaning solutions.
