Hey there everyone!
Today, I am sharing how to clean granite countertops naturally.
It is getting close enough to Spring cleaning and that is what I have been doing around here.
If you missed how to clean your stove grates
or how to clean your hardwood floors organically, you may want to check those out.
I am on a total cleaning frenzy these days. I am trying to rid the house of household cleaners bought at the store.
Although, I still do use clorax wipes in the bathrooms and on the faucets. And the Ammonia on the stove grates was a must! Overall, I am trying to get rid of all those harsh chemicals and store bought cleaning products. We can make our own and they do even a better job.
Plus, they are safe.
Windex is a NO NO on granite.
Although, you may think you are getting that clean sparkle. Remember, stone is porous, so harsh chemicals like bleach or ammonia can also seep into the surface.
Household cleaners aren’t required to label ingredients, so you may not realize something contains a strong acid until it’s too late!
So here is my natural solution to cleaning granite counter tops.
1/4 cup of vodka,
ya know it’s not just for bloody mary’s
you can use a cheap one, it does not matter.
3 drops of Dawn
I used an old windex bottle and filled it only half way with water, so that would be 16 oz. of water along with the above solution.
and wipe with cloth.
Vodka is useful for many things and one happens to be its cleaning ability and the fact that it is user friendly, safe, and a “green” choice.
The alcohol will kill bacteria and is effective at cleaning the granite surface. No residue is left behind and the product dries quickly and is safe.
It was so shiny it reflected the kitchen window and you can see the trees and window panes. Even the canisters reflected, like glass!
Thanks for stopping by today.
Hope you follow me around.
