Here is a semi-solid cleaning solution for delicate surfaces; microwave oven doors, glass-top ovens (MUCH less expensive than the commercial products), table tops, car interiors, windows, walls, and just about anything else that isn't harmed by water. Microfiber cleaning cloths are ideal for soft surfaces, such as coffee makers and microwave doors. The cleaner cuts grease, and washes away easily, and can be used to buff most spills out of carpets with a damp terrycloth towel. Also, with a couple of tweaks, it becomes a super-high-quality laundry detergent, at a small fraction of the cost of any store-bought product.
Step 1: Soft Soap Surface Spiffer main ingredient
Any bath bar or bar-type laundry soap will work fine. Use a standard 4-ounce bar (a little larger or smaller is fine), or half of a larger bar, such as Lirio or Zote, which can both be purchased in stores that sell Mexican products, or online at stores such as Walgreen's.
Step 2: Borax
Borax! Cheap, efficient cleaning booster
Step 3: Washing Soda
Washing Soda -- this is one of the major ingredients in many commercial cleaing compounds. Like Borax, it is EXTREMELY inexpensive, and can be bought at most major groceries, as well as some online retailers.
Step 4: Grater
For the soap. Grating helps the soap to dissolve in the water more quickly and thoroughly.
Step 5: Empty Containers
You can store your custom cleaner in any waterproof container.
Step 6: Step 1 - grate the soap
