Miracle Spray

Here it is. The much talked about Miracle Spray. This wonderful recipe was revealed by a member of The Cheapskates Club a couple of years ago. She mentioned in passing that she was making a cleaning spray and all the members on the Cheapskate’s forum begged her for the recipe.

I must say, Miracle Spray has changed my life. It was like having a ” lightbulb moment ” when I started using it. It replaces so many cleaning products and can save you a few hundred dollars a year. It’s so much better for your health. I suffer from nasty sinus headaches from time to time. If I can gather enough strength to clean my showers with the Miracle Spray, my sinuses are cleared within minutes.

1.5 litres of water ( 1 cup of very hot water )

300mls of white vinegar – no name

60mls of dishwashing liquid – good quality

25mls of eucalyptus oil – not water soluble

3 tablespoons of Lectric soda powder


Miracle Spray ingredients

Mix the Lectric soda in 1 cup of very hot water to dissolve.

Add remainder of ingredients into a 2 litre bottle, fill up with tap water and shake well. Decant into spray bottles.


This can be used on kitchen benches, sinks, toilets, laundry stains, washing freshener, tiled / vinyl floors, showers and carpet stains. It also removes stickers from items. Just spray a few times and leave it for a couple of minutes then wipe the sticker off.

Please do not use on timber surfaces as it could damage the finish.
Please do not use on mirrors as the oil will leave the mirrors streaky.

I quite often make the Miracle Spray in double strength. Just double all the ingredients into a 2 litre bottle and top up with water. Label the bottles as ” double strength “. Dilute it when you fill up the spray bottles.


How to clean your Microwave.

When we are getting ready for a break I always like to do a complete clean of the house. So this morning I have cleaned our Mircowave, without using any chemicals.

I feel a wee embarrassed to show you how dirty it is but I’m trying to keep it real.


All you need are
– a microwaved glass bowl
– water
– white vinegar

So this is how I did it.

Add 2 cups of tap water, 2 tablespoons of vinegar into the bowl.

Put the bowl in the microwave and shut the door. Microwave the water and vinegar for 5 minutes.

When the timer goes off just let it sit for additional 2-3 mins, the steam will help loosen any stuck on bits.

When you are ready remove the bowl very carefully as it’s very hot. Place on the on the bench or pour down the sink.

Then grab a cloth and just wipe it clean.

I needed to go over it with a hot damp cloth as I had melted butter all over the inside but it come off so easy and quick.

Don’t forget to wiped down the front and underneath.

And that’s it folks, nice and easy and quick.

I’m also doing the oven, but that takes a bit longer, I will show that one tomorrow.

Have fun cleaning

Running late….and it’s only Tuesday

I’m running a bit late today with my post, I’ve had a few ups and downs but tomorrow is a new day.

Today I managed to clean out my linen cupboard which is very helpful as now I need to buy some new winter sheets. I did think that I had some but now I can see I don’t.

Plus I went out and bought two new chickens and also came home with a rooster. I will post some pics in the morning as it was dark when I got home with them.

Until tomorrow
