As we talked I mentioned Miracle Spray. The name alone was enough to have him hone in on it. He wanted to know what it was and how it was made, what it was used for and how much it cost. His listeners wanted to know to. I'm still getting emails asking for the recipe.
Since the day Joyofquilting posted this recipe it has been a hit with Cheapskaters. We love it because it is a MOO, it is very, very cheap at around 35 cents a litre to make, and is an all-round super cleaner. It can be used in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry, makes short work of outdoor furniture and barbecues, it even cleans up joggers and dirty sport shoes. Use it in the toilet, on floors, to clean painted surfaces, to clean showers and tiled surfaces.
It was dubbed Miracle Spray and the name has stuck. This cleaner really is miraculous.
1.5 litre water (1 cup boiled)
60ml dishwashing liquid
3 dessertspoons "Lectric" soda (washing soda)
Mix washing soda with about 1 cup boiling water to dissolve, add remaining ingredients, pour into a 2 litre bottle (I use the vinegar ones). That's it folks!!!
This nearly fills the 2 litre bottle, then I decant (don't you just love that word) into spray bottles for benches and laundry, and refill old toilet cleaner bottles to squirt under the rim in the loo etc. It's also good to spray on the floor on tough stains, you know the stuff you dropped when cooking that dried. I originally found the recipe from another site and just tweaked it a bit. I love it, as I try to minimise the use of chemicals around the house. With the collars and cuffs, try to spray and leave to soak for a few minutes works best I've found, so I spray as I sort, then do the whites second rather than first load to give the spray a chance to work.

Miracle Spray has proved so popular some Cheapskaters are making it up in double batches because they can't bear the thought of running out of it.
It certainly has been a hot topic in the Member Forum, with it's own threads and hundreds of posts dedicated to it.
I made up a Tip Sheet for Miracle Spray and it's in the Printables library. Members can download it and either save it to your computer or print it out and keep it in your cleaning cupboard so you'll always have the recipe and instructions on hand.
