All Natural Cleaner

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

shutterstock_123478006 (2)Any habitual coffee drinker knows that your coffee maker shows signs of use after a little while, especially if you have hard water.  Anyone who has worked in the food industry as a server knows a little trick you can use to clean your coffee pot using, cold water, salt, and lemon slices.  However, having lemon slices (or lemon juice) at your disposal is not always the case.  But, when you are a homemade crafter, you will have citric acid on hand!

This recipe is a natural cleaner to remove those pesky hard water and coffee stains with two simple ingredients.  This method can be used once a month, on a regular basis.

Here are the items you will need:
Citric Acid
Water

How to clean you coffee pot:

1.  Rinse out your coffee pot, and place it back onto the machine.  Remove the filter and rinse out the funnel, replace the funnel when done (do not place a filter in the funnel).

2.  Weigh out 28 grams of citric acid.  Then in a separate container, weigh out 880 grams of hot tap water.

3.  Slowly pour the citric acid into the water.  Allow it to dissolve.

4.  Next, weigh out 880 grams of cold tap water.  Add this to the citric acid solution.  Stir gently.

5.  Now, pour all of the solution into the water tank portion of your coffee maker.  Allow the coffee maker to run until 4 cups of the solution has “brewed”.

6.  When this occurs stop the coffee maker and allow it to set undisturbed for at least 20 minutes.

7.  Next, start the coffee maker again, and allow it to fully finish “brewing”.

8.  Allow the mixture to set again for 20 minutes undisturbed.

9.  Before dumping out the cleaning solution from the coffee pot, pour a little bit into a bowl, and dump out the rest of the solution.

10.  Now, using a sponge, clean the outside and top of the coffee pot to remove any outside stains.  Then, rinse the coffee pot and place it back into the coffee machine.

11.  To rinse the machine, weigh out 1760 grams of cold tap water into the water tank and allow it to “brew”.

12.  Once “brewing” is complete, repeat step 11 at least 4-5 additional times before making coffee in the machine.

clean window

This recipe will amaze you! Using this cleaner will leave you super clean glass with unbelievable shine.

Best Window Cleaner Ever

I stumbled up this recipe from a friend’s post on Facebook.  After reading the short description, I knew I had to give this recipe a try.  My dad has always been very strict when it came to having clean windows.  In his mind, a window should sparkle and gleam.  He was the first person to show me the trick of cleaning windows with old newspaper; a trick of the trade I still use today.  So dad, I dedicate this recipe to you.

If you are looking to have the clearest and the cleanest windows in your neighborhood, this is the do it yourself recipe for you.  Your windows will shine to perfection.

Ingredients and Supplies:
Distilled Water
Vinegar
Arrowroot Powder
Newspaper
Bottle with sprayer
Mixing Bowl
Fork
Funnel

The addition of vinegar to this recipe will remove almost anything off your windows.  The arrowroot powder will give your glass a shine that is unmatched by store bought cleaners.

One of the best ways to clean windows is using old newspaper.  Not only for recycling reasons, but also because newspaper will not leave any paper lint behind like paper towels do.  Plus, newspaper is absorbent so why waste when you do not have to.  As a secondary measure, unused coffee filters will work as well for cleaning windows, without leaving lint behind.

Instructions:

1.  Weigh out 2 cups of distilled water.  If you do not have any distilled water, you can boil tap water on the stove top for 20 minutes to destroy any bacteria.  Although you may use tap water, chances are using tap water for this recipe will leave additional residue on your windows; resulting in streaks.

2.  Once you have the correct amount of water in your mixing bowl, add 1tablespoon Arrowroot Powder.  Stir with a fork until completely incorporated, your mixture will be cloudy.

3.  Next, add the ¼ cup vinegar, stir again.

4.  Then, grab your funnel and pour your glass cleaner into your bottle with sprayer.

5.  Finally, shake your heart out on the spray bottle.  You really want to agitate the liquid so that all the ingredients are equally dispersed.

That is it, it is just that simple.  You will need to shake the solution each time that you go to use it.  You just want to shake long enough to re disperse the arrowroot among the liquid mixture.  If the arrowroot is not shaken, it may clog your sprayer.  If this does occur, simply run hot water over the opening of the nozzle, and this should unclog the buildup.

Using this glass cleaner will give you streak free windows every time!  In fact, we even put this recipe to the test with professionals.  In order to get unbiased reviews we asked 3 different professional cleaners to swipe out their name brand window cleaner with this one.  The results are in, and all three unanimously chose this window cleaner over the brand name.  Some of their reasons included:

“Steak Free the first time, no need to keep wiping.”
“Love how it got everything up and off with just a few squirts.”
“The mirrors have never sparkled like this before.”
“I have got to make this for myself at home, I am going to need this recipe.”
“Wow, I don’t even like cleaning windows, but with this stuff, it’s a breeze!”
“For cost effectiveness and crystal clear windows; this is the route I am taking from here on out.”

Please Note:  This recipe does not include a preservative.  It is NOT intended to be made for resale reasons, we are just sharing a wonderful window cleaner that works every time.
