2 Ingredient Bathroom Cleaner

homemade bathroom cleaner


I used to have a favorite commercial brand bathroom cleaner. It was just a store brand but it really was the best I have ever used for cleaning the bathroom, especially the grout lines, but sadly it is not made anymore so I have been searching for that perfect replacement.

I saw this "recipe" on Pinterest and decided to give it a try. I liked that I had the ingredients already. I use vinegar in almost all my cleaning somehow so decided to give it a go.

I mixed it up and tried it out. My conclusion? Pretty darned good! My bathroom tile was sparkling, and I needed only a bit of elbow grease on those grout lines, it all came clean!

Since then I've been using it on wall smudges, and in the kitchen as well. I am liking it more and more every time I use it! I do feel I need a rinse down on the cleaned surface just  like you would with any cleaner. To me  if you want to try it, mix 1/2 cup of each and give it a trial run and see for your self!
Ok. so here's the recipe

1 1/2 cups (12 oz) of white vinegar
1 1/2 cups (12 oz.) dawn dish detergent.

Gently mix the two together in a spray bottle and it is ready to use!

Banana Pudding Poke Cake

Banana Cake


 Finding yummy desserts for a diabetic can be quite a challenge, but this one turned out completely yummy!  I found a fabulous dessert for Banana Poke Cake over at www.thecountrycook.net and decided to make it into a sugar free option for my diabetic husband.

You can of course make it not sugar free by using regular ingredients instead of the sugar free ones. It is almost better than banana pudding ,and is perfect to take along to your next potluck or gathering. You will be asked for the recipe I guarantee it!

I did make one change that I felt necessary,but you may find shocking and inexcusable. I ditched the traditional vanilla wafers for graham crackers! (Insert gasp here!). Because I am specifically making this for a diabetic, and as of yet I have not found sugar free vanilla wafers (although I'm sure they are out there), I used graham crackers. They are made with  whole wheat flour and although they have sugar they can be worked into a diabetic diet within reason (as any sugar can so feel free to go with vanilla wafers!).

It doesn't have sliced banana's in the pudding although you could easily sprinkle some diced banana's on top of the pudding before spreading the cool whip. I just sliced some on top fresh just before serving.
