|My Spray Bottle(keep by the kitchen sink), 32 oz bottle (keep under the sink), and gallon (which I keep in the laundry area).|
I'm all about simplifying life, which is what fueled the search for a better cleaning product. I was in love the day that I found Pledge Multi-Surface Cleaner. It's pretty versatile (but gets expensive) and I didn't think that I'd ever find something that I liked even more. Boy was I wrong. I stumbled across Sal Suds when I was cruising one of my favorite blogs, and I am never going back to any other cleaner. It costs a fraction of my old favorite, so that's a big selling point right there. **Warning:Be prepared to clear up a ton of space under the sink when you throw away all your other cleaning products.(plus, it's good to have as few harsh chemicals in the home as possible)**
Is it really that versatile? Here's how I use it:
All you have to do to start is fill a NEW(for safety reasons) spray bottle with water and then add anywhere from a couple drops of Sal Suds to 1 Tablespoon of it (depending on how strong you need it to be). That's it. Away you go cleaning your whole house.
- I use it as dish soap, just spray the dishes.
- For microfiber couches or carpet stains.
- Use it for the entire interior of a car (glass, dashboard, even the seats).
- It's AWESOME for streak free windows (even crayon with minimal elbow grease).
- I use it like Clorox Anywhere(In the fridge, kids toys, George Forman grill(when it's cold so I don't burn myself) & on anything you can think of).
- I spray a bit into a rag and wipe down electronics.
- I like to spritz a bit on the exterior of my cupboards, wait a few seconds and then wipe it off...best thing I've found to clean the cupboards because it cuts grease.
- I spritz a bit on laundry stains. It's works great to pre-treat the laundry(even dried blood).
- I use a tsp or so in a bucket of water to mop my floors with.
- You can use it as a detergent for a Steam Cleaner (go here for directions).
- You can use it straight for dish and laundry detergent (but it gets expensive that way which is why I came up with my recipe w/it as the main ingredient).
- My sister said that she put some (undiluted) on a permanent marker stain that was on the carpet, left it over night, scrubbed it a little the next morning and the marker was gone.
*Never use it directly with vinegar as it reduces the effectiveness of Sal Suds (per Lisa Bronner's advice).
*Always put the water in your spray bottle first and then the Sal Suds or it'll be a bubbly mess.
