My Homemade Cleaner

Family Chic Homemade Cleaner

I came up with this simple recipe when I was trying to find an eco-friendly way to clean our countertops and stainless appliances (which is a daily routine around here). I use it for everything now – even our floors.

A few of you have asked about my homemade cleaner that I mentioned in The Country Living Magazine article a few weeks ago. Here is the recipe:

Camilla’s Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner:

3 parts water

1 part white vinegar

A dash of almond oil dish soap

Use a spray bottle to apply – wipe up with a soft cloth.

*Before use, check to make sure vinegar is safe for use on your specific counter material.

    where can I purchase Almond Oil Dish Soap – what brand name.

    HI Camilla, do you recommend another alternative for the almond oil if you are allergic to almonds?

    is this safe for granite counter tops?
