Instructions for Making Homemade Granite Cleaner

Step 1 – Combine the Ingredients

Start by combining the water, rubbing alcohol, and castile soap in a spray bottle. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil for fragrance.

To make it easy to pour, use a small funnel to allow the ingredients to flow in well.

Step 2 – Shake the Bottle

Shake the bottle to help mix the ingredients thoroughly.

Step 3 – Label the bottle

While this step is optional, it’s important to label the bottle so it is not mistaken for other products. Store it away from kids and pets.

How to Clean with DIY Granite Cleaner

You can use this cleaner daily to clean your kitchen or bathroom granite counters. All you have to do is spray the solution on the surface and wipe it with a cloth or paper towel.

Make sure to avoid using abrasive products on your granite countertop, as it is very delicate, especially if it is not sealed. Abrasive products can damage the granite.

Benefits of Using Homemade Granite Cleaner

Using homemade granite cleaners offers a range of benefits. Firstly, the ingredients used in these cleaners are natural and non-toxic, making them safer for both you and the environment.

Unlike commercial cleaners, which often leave behind residue, homemade cleaners are residue-free, resulting in a streak-free shine on your granite surfaces.

Additionally, homemade granite cleaners are highly customizable, allowing you to experiment with different scents and ingredients to suit your preferences.
