Today, I was a The Americana at Brand’s Lost and Found trying to get Spane’s scooter that he may have left there. I was really surprised that the base-boards, door jams, and kick plates were so dirty. I told the security guard it was disgusting and told him about the Secret Formula.
A while back I had a plastic spray bottle on the counter, and when my friend asked me what it was, I said “It’s my secret formula”. It became a joke among my friends because they were always surprised at how well it worked, and when they found out what it was, were amazed at how cost-effective it was as well.
The Secret Formula is very inexpensive to make, about $0.25 per bottle, compared with paying $3-$4 for another spray. It kills germs on contact, and it leaves a fresh, just cleaned scent. I’ve been using it for years, and it’s never failed me.
I told the guard what the Secret Formula is, so I guess I should share it with you, too.
Recipe: Secret Formula
- 1 good quality spray bottle
- 1/3 bleach
- 2/3 water
- Pour the bleach into the contain and fill the rest with water. Put the top back on, and clean to your heart’s content.
- Spray on surfaces, then wipe with a clean paper towel.
This is safe to use on almost any surface, except fabric and wood. Try not to lean on surfaces where this is sprayed as you may bleach your clothing.
You can use a sponge, but the chlorine will destroy it pretty quickly, so a paper towel is better because it will not spread any germs.
Preparation time: 1 minute(s)
