I love it when my granite counter tops are all shiny and sparkly, but I am way too frugal to pay for the expensive granite cleaners. So, what is a girl to do? She finds her own DIY granite cleaner, of course. I came across this recipe a couple of years ago and have been using it ever since. It is so easy to make and I promise your granite will sparkle and shine like the day it was installed.
You will need alcohol, water and dish soap. I like to use essential oils to make the DIY granite spray smell fantastic, too. Start by adding two cups of water and 1/4 cup alcohol to the spray bottle.
Then add about 5-6 drops of dish soap to the spray bottle. I am using Dawn, but you could use any brand. I just use whatever I have in the house.
Finally, I like to add about 10-15 drops of essential oils. The essential oils aren’t necessary, I just like to have a nice smell for the granite spray. It takes away from the smell of the alcohol. I love the smell of the sweet orange for a spray. I am not brand picky with essential oils, but I do love Fabulous Frannie essential oils. I have noticed that they are just as good as the more expensive brands but cost much less. You can head over here to grab one of their gift sets or just buy one bottle. They are usually less than $5 a bottle.
Now just put your lid back on the spray bottle and give a little shake. Spray the granite spray directly on the counter top and use a microfiber cloth to wipe the counter off. It leaves such a great shine!
I love making my own household cleaners. Not only are they frugal, but I know what goes into them. Do you make your own household cleaners? I would love to hear what works for you. Want more DIY ideas and frugal tips? Follow me on Pinterest.
