Over the last couple of weeks I’ve had occasion to use what I affectionately refer to as my “Miracle Cleaner” several times! The inside of my slow cooker needed some help, my flat iron was looking pretty grungy, and finally I noticed my cookie sheets were again showing their “age.” Each time I mix up this simple concoction, my amazement over its efficacy is renewed! It truly is a “miracle cleaner” in my eyes.
So today I decided to give it a new moment to shine on my website for those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of being introduced to it yet. Prepare to be amazed.
For those of you who HAVE had the pleasure…I have rounded up TEN different posts I have done that feature this cleaning lifesaver for inspiration….in case there’s something you’ve missed. :-)
What is this MIRACLE you ask? It is quite simply…baking soda and hydrogen peroxide made into a paste.
This is how I make it:
I don’t store this mixture…I simply mix it up as needed. I start with a small bowl, add as much baking soda as I think I’ll need for the job, and then slowing pour in the hydrogen peroxide until I have made a thick paste. If you happen to get a little over zealous with the hydrogen peroxide and it becomes runny….simply add more baking soda. It’s that simple.
This how I use it:
Then I take a glob (yes, that’s the technical term for it) of the mixture and rub it on the offending stain/mess. If you have sensitive skin I would suggest wearing gloves but I don’t. I find rubbing with my fingers the most effective at getting the gunk off whatever I’m working on, but you could certainly use a sponge or something similar too.
This is my “Miracle Cleaner” + one of my other favorite cleaning ally’s…Dawn dish soap. Also read: Original Blue Dawn…It’s Not Just For Dishes Anymore.
I never thought my old cookies sheets could look new again….until the “miracle cleaner!”
I updated the cookie sheets post when I discovered an even easier way to use the “miracle cleaner.”
How do these things get so gross? Thank goodness the “miracle cleaner” makes them look like new again (because they’re way too expensive to have to replace very often!)
After the “overnight plastic bag technique,” the “miracle cleaner” finishes this nasty kitchen cleaning chore!
Stained, dingy, and CHEAP silverware that I bought for a party really NEEDED the “miracle cleaner.” Once again it saved the day!
If you have hard water, like I do, you know what a number it can do on your utensils. The white stains were no match for the “miracle cleaner.”
The “miracle cleaner” made my bathroom sparkle like it hadn’t sparkled in a very long time!
The “miracle cleaner” is definitely high on the list of my all-time favorite homemade cleaners.
The inside lining of my slow cooker gets SO dirty. It drives me crazy. But it’s no match for the “miracle cleaner.”
After using this tried-and-true mixture a couple of times this past week, I just couldn’t resist sharing it again. Hopefully at least some of you out there get as excited about this stuff as I do. :-)
