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

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


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!
