DIY countertop cleaner

Okay, I swear by this stuff. I pinned it awhile back and have been using it for the last few months and it is amazing!!! We have granite countertops in our kitchen and after I wipe them down with the homemade countertop cleaner, it's like the entire room sparkles. I have used it in the bathrooms too where there isn't granite and it works just as well. 

All it takes is about an 1/8 of rubbing alcohol, a few drops of Dawn antibacterial soap, a little bit of scented oil (I chose Lavender) and water. Then you shake it all together and done! Now you have a bottle full of what I would consider to be the world's best countertop cleaner. I promise, once you try this stuff you won't want to use the store bought cleaners ever again!!!


  1. I use a similar formula, but with 1/4 c of alcohol. Works wonders!!!!

  2. Wow, what a difference. You did a fantastic job on them.

  3. I'm a little confused on the amount. It just says 1/8. So, 1/8 what? cup?

    1. I fill the bottle about an 8th full of the rubbing alcohol. Hope this helps. :)
