I have been using this inexpensive secret formula cleaner for years. With concern about plastics in our environment and keeping ahead of viral infection, it’s important to have a no-fail cleaner.
Secrets in this Post
While visiting the 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 baseboards, door jams, and kick plates were so dirty. I told the security guard it was disgusting and told him about the Secret Formula.
What IS 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, they 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.
Improved Secret Formula
I am very aware of the crisis our planet is facing because of Climate Change and the use of fossil fuels. I try to use as little plastic as possible. I got tired of buying bleach in a plastic container. I found bleach tablets on Amazon and they are great. Using a leftover gallon milk carton, I just plop a tablet in the container, fill it up with tap water, and I have a gallon of bleach that I can use all over the house, in my laundry, for the toilet, etc. With all that, it’s even less expensive than liquid bleach. Let’s do a cost comparison:
So, I guess you can see who is the winner here, right? Go for the tablets. Stop lugging bleach up and down to do laundry.
