Homemade Granite Cleaner


I am someone who spends a ridiculous amount of time in the kitchen (making a mess!), so if there is one thing I have learned, it is how to clean a counter!  Sure you could buy a granite cleaner, but do you have any idea what chemicals are in them?  There are a number of nasty ingredients that you would be spewing onto your counter (where you prep and serve food!) and into the air in your home.  That "clean" smell?  Yup, it's a chemical derived scent.  Since when does clean have to smell like a pine forest?  That's not clean!!

I have a wonderful alternative to clean your granite counters.  It is a simple mixture of water, isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol), and dish soap.  That's it!  And it does a fantastic job!  I use an old spray bottle and just keep refilling whenever I run low.  I hope you give it a try and get one more conventional cleaning product out of your house.

Homemade Granite Cleaner
1/2 C water
1 C isopropyl alcohol
15-20 drops of dish soap

Combine these ingredients into a spray bottle.  I give it a little shake each time before I use it.
