This Reader Makes Her Own Granite Cleaner Using Just TWO Everyday Household Items

Destroy germs and save 💰!
Cleaning supplies, especially disinfectant sprays are a bit harder to find these days and the prices have gone up as well due to the high demand from consumers this past year because of Covid.

And, since we are using so many more cleaning products right now, it can be hard on the old wallet. One way to help save on the cost of supplies is to just simply make your own! Making your own cleaner can sound daunting and impossible but it’s actually super simple and most can be made by using products you probably already have on hand!

Check out how Hip reader, Natalia makes her own cleaning sprays using just a couple of products!

I make my own cleaners. My favorite is my granite cleaner. To make it, I mix half a cup of rubbing alcohol with a drop or two of dish soap and fill the rest of the bottle with water. The alcohol disinfects and the soap cuts through grease!

You can even add some citrus essential oils for bonus cleaning powers and a refreshing smell!
