I started making this a few months ago and love it.
Not only is it better for your house air (your lungs), it is also good for the environment because you aren't buying and throwing out all those plastic bottles of retail cleaner.
I keep a spray bottle of this under both bathroom sinks, and one in the kitchen as well. I love spraying down my counters and sinks with this stuff and not feeling guilty about it. And I'm certain I'm saving lots of money. It really does clean well.
1 tbsp of Borax powder (find it in the laundry aisle of your supermarket)
3 tbsps of white vinegar
2 cups of water
1 tablespoon of dish soap
1 drop of essential oil such as peppermint for fragrance (optional)
Pour it into a spray bottle you bought at the hardware store, give it a shake, and you are ready to clean.

I don't use it on my floors however. For my wood floors I use just water and a little white vinegar. For the tile floors I use a little VO5 shampoo mixed with water.
