Homemade Spray Cleaner

Tidbit: Homemade Spray Cleaner Recipe
Mix in a sprayer bottle:
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup water

In the kitchen, use vinegar-and-water spray to clean countertops, lightly soiled range surfaces and backsplash areas.
In the bathroom, use vinegar spray cleaner to clean countertops, floors, and exterior surfaces of the toilet.
For really tough bathroom surfaces such as shower walls, pump up the cleaning power by removing the sprayer element and heating the solution in the microwave until barely hot. Spray shower walls with the warmed generously, allow to stand for 10 to 15 minutes, then scrub and rinse. The heat helps soften stubborn soap scum and loosens hard water deposits.

ECK:
Dishwashing liquid: you name it! This dirt cheap liquid cleans it, from dishes to windows. Skip antibacterial formulas they’ll rid your hands, not your countertops of germs. Color rarely stains surfaces, but clear is safest.
All-purpose cleaner: you can pour it into the toilet, or wipe down faucets, countertops, floors and more. The label should include two things: the term degreaser (or cuts grease) and an EPA number to show it’s a proven disinfectant.

The ECK stands fot essential cleaning kit. THere are 16 items total. I just didn't feel like typing out "essential cleaning kit" every time I mentioned a new item.
