Quick homemade floor cleaner

by admin on March 25, 2009

I’m not big on buying separate cleaners for x, y, and z chores. In fact, when I ran out of my floor cleaner and needed to mop the kitchen floor I searched online for homemade cleaners and came up with a solution out of the ingredients I had on hand. Just three simple ingredients and I had a floor cleaner that worked better than the store bought solution.

  • 1/4 cup borax
  • 1/4 cup ammonia
  • 1 Tablespoon dish soap

Add the three ingredients to your mop bucket and fill it with about 2 gallons of warm water. Borax is a naturally occurring substance that helps to remove stains and deodorize. The ammonia helps to kill germs and the dish soap helps break down and remove any gunk that you might have on your floor.

You can find borax in your grocery store laundry soap section. Please remember to never mix ammonia with bleach when creating your own cleaners. It creates a toxic chloride gas.
