This was that post from back in 2007 and a long list of helpful cleaners you can make yourself:
One of my favorite cleaners I have used for just about everything since 2007
"Deb's Best Ever Window & Glass Cleaner Ever Made"
2 cups water
1 cup isopropyl alcohol - 70%
2 tsp ammonia
This is the Soap I have used for many many years for my shampoo, hand soap, dishwashing, laundry, pets, and so much more. It lasts a very long time and can be diluted for many uses. A dilution chart is included as well and all the many things it can be used for.
WASH POTS AND PANS
Pour a small amount of Epsom salts into those really-dirty dishes before you scrub them.
The abrasive texture of the salt crystals will help to remove stuck-on food more easily without hurting your cookware.
CLEAN TILE AND GROUT
cleaning dirty shower and bathroom tiles with mold
Mix equal parts Epsom salts and liquid dish detergent to create a super effective tile and grout cleaner.
Apply this mixture to dirty or stained surfaces in the bathroom, kitchen, or even outside and allow it to soak in for a minute or two.
Then scrub away the loosened grime and rinse clean.
AS A HAND WASH
Mix equal parts Epsom salts and baby oil to create a moisturizing hand cleanser.
Store this mixture in bottles next to all of the sinks around your home and use regularly to keep hands soft and clean.
It is widely accepted in mainstream and alternative health and beauty circles for its potent astringent properties.
Use undiluted witch hazel in a spray bottle to clean glass, chrome, and mirrors. Simply wipe away with a paper towel and enjoy sparkling, disinfected surfaces
FABRIC SOFTENER FRESHNER
Use Glass Container - Fill with Epsom Salt and 10 -20 drops essential oils of your choice - I use lemon - Shake up and include in wash just as you would with normal fabric softener.
I also add Organic Baking Soda in mine as it softens the loads also (optional).
