Homemade, Household "Comet" Cleaner - My favorite!!

Use this solution for cleaning and washing counters, sinks, pots, pans, chrome on tub & sink hardware, etc.

Mix these 3 ingredients in a big bowl:

4 TBSP. Citric Acid  www.gygi.com

2 c. Baking Soda  - Any grocery store, however, I buy 5 lbs at a time.

2 c. 20 Mule Team Borax*  - Any grocery store


As a Comet type cleaner: Store in a quart Mason Jar


Shake 1 - 2 teaspoons on the surface to clean.


As a dishwashing soap: 


Keep and Use any previous Dishwashing Soap Containers for this homemade solution.


Make a quart of liquid dish soap:  


1 TBSP dry mix

Fill with water

Mix


Adjust soap portions as needed

NOTE:  I've been using this solution for over a year now and I LOVE it!!  I would never go back to heavy duty chemical cleaners every again!
