Miracle Cleaner? Rubbing Alcohol

Miracle Cleaner, Best Cleaner Ever

Today I was wiping down my tile back splash and was so so about the results. Some of the grease splatters were still stuck on the tile. Well I wanted to hang a picture with one of those 3M velcro great sticky picture hangers. Like my description? Anyway, it recommended wiping the tile down with rubbing alcohol before applying the picture hanger and when I did I noticed it wonderfully cleaned the area. Even after I had already cleaned it with a kitchen spray cleaner. So I wiped the entire backsplash down with the alcohol and it removed all the grease build up and any dirt and it was so shiny I literally could see myself in the reflection. Who knew? I immediately placed the bottle of alcohol underneath the sink with all my other cleaners. Small things like my reflection in the backsplash make me happy. I kept looking at it today and loving how clean it seemed. Now I have to see what else this might clean. Within reason of course.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my little blog and leaving a message. I appreciate it ! Everything seems so much better when things are shiny and clean, I agree !
    much love,

  3. i work in a spa and we clean everything and i mean everything with alcohol. because there are so many oils used in our work, oil gets everywhere and alcohol is the best thing for that. and the smell dissapates quickly. so great tip!


  4. I'm going to try this on he truck Windows inside... I've been driving my hubby's old truck and the windows are awful ...and he's cleaned them! I bet it does the trick... And I'm out of vinegar.
