A Simple, All-Purpose Cleaner

A staple in the DIY cleaning arsenal is the all-purpose cleaner. This simple solution can be used on various surfaces in your home, from kitchen countertops to bathroom tiles. Here's a simple recipe for a universal cleaner:


  • 1 part white vinegar
  • 1 part water
  • Lemon rind
  • Rosemary sprigs


  1. Combine the above ingredients together and pour into a spray bottle.
  2. Shake until mixed well.
  3. Let infuse for a week before usage.

The mixture of vinegar and water serves as a potent cleaner, while the lemon rind adds a fresh scent. Rosemary sprigs provide an anti-bacterial aspect and also boost the cleaning power.

Remember to give your cleaner a little shake before using it each time to ensure the ingredients are well mixed.

A Streak-Free Glass Cleaner

Windows and other glass surfaces usually require specific cleaners to ensure a streak-free finish. Here's a simple DIY glass cleaner:


  • 2 cups of water (distilled or boiled and cooled)
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol)
  • 5 drops essential oil (optional)


  1. Combine water, white vinegar, and rubbing alcohol into a spray bottle.
  2. If desired, add the essential oil for a fresh scent.
  3. Shake the bottle to mix the ingredients.

Make sure that you spray the cleaner onto a microfiber cloth or a newspaper when cleaning the glass surfaces to avoid streaks.
