Homemade Granite Countertop Cleaner

We've been so busy since we relocated to the new state that a lot of post ideas, photos, recipes, etc. have sat in files on my computer with no time to post.  This is one I found a few months ago and tucked away for my own use, as our new home has granite counters in 2 of the bathrooms and the full kitchen.  Specialty granite cleaners at the store are so expensive.  When the bottle of special granite cleaner I bought when we first moved in is empty, I'm going to refill it with this mixture.




Granite Cleaner

1 quart sized spray bottle (can buy at the Dollar Store or Target)
Rubbing Alcolhol
Dawn dishwashing liquid
scented oil of your choice (lemon, lavender)

Fill the empty spray bottle 1/8th full with rubbing alcohol.  A just one or two drops of Dawn dishwashing soap.  If you choose to use a scented oil, add two or three drops now.  Fill the rest of the way with water, shake gently to mix.
