Homemade Cleaners


Hey Everyone!  We're back with Thankless Tips and Tricks Thursdays!  I hope you are enjoying them!  I'd love to hear any ideas you have for them!  I'll gladly do the research and find tips and tricks on whatever subjects you suggest!!! 
.
Today I thought I'd share the recipes for laundry soap and window cleaner.  Both work very well.  One batch of the laundry soap will literally last for months, and I do 3-5 loads per day!

To Make Window Cleaner:
Get a spray bottle (the one I use came from Dollar Tree)
fill halfway with water
fill the rest with vinegar
Shake and use!
 
It's best to use newspaper, but if you don't have newspaper or don't like using it, you can use whatever you like.  Just don't use something that is going to leave behind particles.
 

Laundry Detergent:
1 bar fels naptha (soap found in the laundry section)
2 cups borax
2 cups washing powder

Grate/shred the bar of fels naptha into fine shreds, mix all together.  Place in jar for storage.  Use 1 tbsp (yes, you DID read that right!) for normal loads and 2 tbsp for absorbent loads.
 
I add scented stuff to my loads of towels and blankets so that they smell pretty.  :D
