Frugal Experiment: All-Purpose Cleaner


A little vinegar and borax can go a long way! I finished up a particular 'toxic' cleaner I bought at the store a while back. I kept the bottle, poured in the new ingredients, and it works great! I use it for everything. I even used it to clean up a little red paint that was spilled on my beige carpet! Also, some pink Sunny D was spilled on the carpet as well. This too came up very well.

Keep in mind I used this as soon as the spill happened. It does take a little elbow grease on other surfaces or stains/crustations.

Anyway, it's all natural and does what I need it to do for now. Here's the recipe if you are interested!

2 Teaspoons Borax
4 Tablespoons Vinegar
32 ounces of water
