It’s Easter break. For many of us that means time off work, family time and cooking big meals. Here in the UK, the sun is in full cooperation, which happens about 3 times a year - so I imagine we’ll all be a little more merry than usual. So in anticipation of Monday’s inevitable clean up and kitchen de-grease, I’m sharing a simple all purpose cleaning spray recipe. It’s got just three ingredients: water, surgical spirits (rubbing alcohol in the US) and Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds. This is the second cleaner recipe I’ve shared - you can see my DIY glass cleaner here (it’s even streak-free!)
Here’s the recipe:
450 ml / 16 oz of water (Distilled is good, but I also use tap water!)
80ml /1/3 cup surgical spirits (or rubbing alcohol) (Available at drug stores)
1/2 tsp of Dr Bronner’s Sal Suds (I get mine here)
Add the ingredients in that order to your amber spray bottle and bam! You’re ready to de-grease those work surfaces (including marble and granite), tiles, sinks, etc.
NB: This recipe is not for use on wood surfaces, as the surgical spirit will wear any varnish / finish down.
I hope you‘ll give this a whirl, it’s yet another way to avoid plastics and toxic chemicals in your home.
Enjoy your break and the Spring sunshine! Please let me know what you think in a comment or message.
