Hi guys! How was everyone’s weekend? Last week my Dad surprised me and Sofia by walking in through the front door with Kiril. My jaw dropped! We had a great couple of days hanging with him- we even tasted out the new vegan burger that tastes like a regular meat burger… “Beyond Meat Burger.” It has beet juice to resemble the “juiciness” of a meaty burger– It was a little too realistic for me but I did enjoy it! Highly recommend!!
I love, love, love EASY DIY stuff that adds value to the everyday life. Who doesn’t? I am not one to try something that has tons of steps or requires a bunch of materials, etc. I have been wanting to start making my own cleaning products despite using mostly “green” products simply because it’s healthy and affordable for my family. Also, when I run out of glass and granite cleaner, I like to have a back up option other than run to the store.
So after some research online, I combined a few ideas together and came up with this lemon glass cleaner. Let me know what you guys think…as always working with any form of “chemicals” it’s important to be extra cautious. Never mix bleach and ammonia together, or even put them next to each other because the fumes are dangerous (I’m sure you already knew that though!)
DIY Green Glass and Surface Cleaner:
What you need:
- White Vinegar (1/2 cup)
- Lemon Juice (3 Tbsp.)
- Isopropyl Alcohol (1/2 cup)
- Filtered water/Brita Water! (2 cups)
- Non-toxic Dish Soap (2 Tbsp)
Mix all together in a glass mixing bowl or jar, pour into container. Spray and use just like you would a normal glass cleaner.
***TIP: For cleaning windows, you can use just 1/2 cup of filtered water and 1/2 cup of vinegar with NEWSPAPER instead of your traditional cloth. It makes the windows SHINE BRIGHT LIKE DIAMONDS.
Here’s to a healthy and happy you– have a great week, guys! ~Jess
