Uses For All Purpose Cleaners

All purpose cleaners are used to remove dirt and grease, and are generally mild.

They are versatile because they can be used on so many types of surfaces. However, they are not disinfectants.

Below are four recipes for homemade all purpose cleaner.

  • 1 tablespoon ammonia
  • 1 tablespoon liquid laundry detergent (or dishwashing liquid)
  • 1 pint water


Mix the ingredients in a spray bottle to use. (Make sure you label the contents of your spray bottle.)

Warning: Do not use this cleaner on fiberglass or aluminum.

All Purpose Cleaner Recipe With Washing Soda

  • 1 gallon warm water


Mix ingredients into a bucket.

Warning: Do not use this cleaner on fiberglass or aluminum.

  • 1/3 cup rubbing alcohol (also known as isopropyl alchol)
  • 1 tsp household ammonia (non-sudsing)
  • 1 tsp mild dishwashing liquid
  • 1/2 tsp lemon juice


Combine the ingredients in a spray bottle, and shake well before each use.

Warning: As with all cleaners containing ammonia, do not use this cleaner on fiberglass or aluminum.
