Amy's notes for this recipe:
Have you ever used the "Magic Eraser"? Well, I have and it is indeed magic! However, incredibly expensive.

Personalize This


You are going to mix this right in you spray bottle! Add the warm to hot water and the Borax. Cover bottle and shake until Borax has dissolved. Next add the white vinegar. Add as many drops of your essential oil as you would like (each one is different, therefore requiring different amounts to mask the vinegar smell). Lightly shake up and start cleaning

Amy, did you try it out? I do like the magic erasers but like you said, expensive! I have everything needed to make this, so maybe I should clean today! :0 lol!

Yes, I have used this; although I did not have the essential oil. I think that that will only enhance it's ability to work well on woods, and times when it is useful to have that little bit of oil in it (kitchen cabinets and furniture especially). I am sure too, that it will enhance the scent!
