  1. The people who built my house decided to tile the ktchen and hallway with white tiles. I have a toddler and a tan dog. This combination of cleaning agents is what has worked best for me out of all the things I have tried,with the ammonia especially removing all sorts of things without too much effort. It is rare for me to get down on my knees and scrub away at a stain.
  2. I love this stuff. When I make up a batch I double it and put it in a spray bottle. Then I run a bucketful of steaming hot water. Cleaning is a breeze because all you have to do is squirt the floor with the cleaner and then I run over the area with the hot water and a mop. I will never again buy harsh cleaners for my floor!!
  3. I just got finished mopping my kitchen floor and had to come leave a review. This cleaner worked wonderful, with very little scrubbing! It smelt wonderful too! I used a wet mop and sprayed the cleaner directly to the floor. I rinsed the mop out several times and could really see the dirt I was picking up. I will definitely use this again and again. Thanks for sharing!
  4. As the owner of a house cleaning company, I'm always looking for something better. I tried this on different floor types and found that it didn't matter. It left a film that had to be rinsed off. I think amonia and water works better if you don't want to rinse.
  5. Worked very well and made the rooms smell fresh & clean, No more store bought stuff for me :-)


I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
