My kitchen "hack"
In my quest to kill the annoying ants in my house and have it be non toxic because if Tristen, I found a recommendation to use dish soap and water in a spray bottle. It works well but I discovered it has other uses. I needed to wash just one dish the other night so I grabbed my spray bottle of soap and water. I used so much less soap than the old put some soap on the dish rag trick.
Now anytime I need to soak a dish I just spray it with the spray bottle and when I'm ready to wash it it's easy to clean and I don't have to let it sit in water for an hour and get gross :-)
I've started washing all my counter tops with it and the stove top. It works better than any cleaner I've found so far. And I don't have harsh chemicals on my counter or being heated up and put into the air from my stove top.
It's works great to spot mop my hardwood floors when Tristen spills. Since it's made to clean up food it is perfect.
The best part is that it's one bottle instead of the 3-4 bottles of cleaners I had.
What ratio of soap to water do you use in your bottle? I kinda like that idea for dishes and quick mop ups.
Normally the soap and water comes out like 4 parts water 1 part soap, sometimes a little less soap.
And I am so trying your concoction. Anything to make dishes easier, lol!
I was shocked at how much easier the dishes are to clean. Last night I did a baked thing for dinner. Had cheese and rice in it and it was baked on the pan. I sprayed the soapy water on it this morning before I started the dishes and by the time I washed that pan it just wiped right out...I did a little happy dance! Lol
