Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner

I love love love this all purpose cleaner. I make it myself and it saves me tons of money. I have black granite counter tops and they are very hard to clean without the help of an all purpose cleaner. I was using this J.R Watkins one and I loved it but it was $6.00 a pop. I go through a bottle in about 2 weeks so it was getting a bit expensive. My lovely mother-in-law gave me an all-purpose cleaner recipe that worked for her so I gave it a try. Now that's all I use.

All-Purpose Cleaner
2 cups water
3 TBSP vinegar
1 tsp Borax
Whisk together and pour into a spray bottle. Add:
1 TBSP dish soap

I've been refilling this bottle with my homemade stuff for about a year now. I think it's held up nicely.

Darlene gave me a baggie of the borax becuase it comes in a huge box.
