Hi everyone just joined the 700 club,blessings from above to all.Just wondered if anyone had that laundry detergent recipe,I just loved Angela Coffman recipes,it,s nice to know there are homemade alternatives to costly cleaning products. Thanks so much
For window/glass cleaner, I like to make it in bulk (1 gal)
1 gal jug of water (pour about half out)
2 cups lemon ammonia
1 cup rubbing alcohol
(Then fill the rest of your jug up with water)
Then add 1 tsp Dawn dishsoap.
Swish around- do not shake.
I use this for an all purpose cleaner as well.
Also, for a streak-free shine, use crumpled pages from an old newspaper to clean mirrors/windows.
Thanks for the recipes,it will save us alot in the long run. God Bless. I can't tell you how many times my wife and I tried ideas for around the house that would save us money. After watching how easy it was to mix your recipes, we will never buy name brand again. We hope you come up with more ideas in the future.
