Works-for-me Wednesday

Hi everyone! Yes, our trip was wonderful. The Renaissance Festival ruled, although I've never seen so much cleavage in my entire life ... including the 27 months I've spent pregnant and looking down in amazement at my own growing breasts. (My mom is totally going to tell me how inappropriate that statement was the next time I talk to her. It's ok, Mom, I know. See? You don't even have to tell me now!!) I'll try to post more about the trip tomorrow.

And now ... the only thing I seem to have been posting lately ... Works for Moi Wednesday! Check out Rocks in my Dryer for more great tips ... and I really mean that. I learn some great stuff from these ladies each week. I don't have much exciting this week; I think next week I'm going to do a reverse WFMW, and ask for your advice on something.

This week, I'll just tell you about my cleaner I love. I make it myself, and it works better than anything I've ever bought. Also, chemical cleaners tend to give me a wicked headache, so I try to avoid them as much as I can. Here's how to make the stuff I use:

1 empty spray bottle
white vinegar
rubbing alcohol
dish soap

(this is already sounding complicated, isn't it!!)

Fill the bottle 1/3 full with vinegar. Add two to three glugs of alcohol (this bigger the bottle the more glugs, obviously). Add a few squirts of soap (I use maybe a tablespoon; I don't like too much soap). Fill the rest of the bottle with water, shake, and viola! You have a great, cheap disinfecting cleaner that works of pretty much every surface, including glass!!!

So that's what works for me. Anyone else make their own cleaning products?

Thanks for sharing that! I can't wait to try it! I get headaches from chemicals also, but I love to have something that disinfects!!
Have a blessed day.
Oh and the 'glug' measurement made laugh!! Funny!
