Today i am sharing a recipe for cleaning your counters with more ease. Which includes castile soap helping to lift dirt and grime, while the water helps rinse it away. Germ-busting thyme is infused into common isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, which helps the spray dry to a non-streak shine.
Let's make this recipe together.
Ingredients: For 1 Cup
- 1 tbsp (3 g) dried thyme
- 3 tbsp (45 ml) isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
- 1 cup (250 ml) water
- 2 tsp (10 ml) liquid castile soap
First making Thyme Infused Alcohol
Place the thyme leaves in a small cup or jar and pour the alcohol over them. Cover, and infuse overnight. The alcohol will turn a
pretty shade of green. Strain.
Assemble counter cleaner
Fill a spray bottle or jar with the water, then gently stir in the castile soap. Pour the infused alcohol into the mixture and stir once
more. Be sure to label your counter cleaner, so no one mistakenly thinks it’s an herbal mixture that can be ingested, and keep it out of the reach of small children.
Shake gently before each use. Spritz over your counters, paying extra attention to especially dirty spots. Use a rag or paper towel to
wipe and buff dry.
