Yes it's washing soda powder. And I used white vinegar. And yes I also used it straight out of the bottle.
I must make another batch (3rd) as I only have a little bit left. :)

I forgot to get back to you all re. the oven door.  I tried again with the spray, left it on for a few minutes then had a scrub with one of those green nylon pot scourers and  a bit of gumption and the glass cleaned up really well.  there are still one or two little dots of burnt on grease left but that is mainly because I was too lazy to finish the job properly - so don't despair ladies, give it another go and see how you get on.  As I was cleaning the door I wondered whether it would make any difference if I had slightly pre-heated the oven ... do you think that would have made removal any easier / harder?

DJ, this article may be of help to you.  I also use plain white generic brand vinegar.

I've only just got around to making this. I like it......a lot! I'm a big fan of the smell of eucalyptus too which is an added bonus. No mad cleaning spree for me just yet due to a poorly neck but can't wait to get this into action.

Take it easy until your neck is better, Brumington, the cleaning can wait.

Thank you! It's an ongoing problem. I have Osteoathritis so need to manage it properly. My problem is that when my neck has been good for long periods of time I tend to not take the glucosamine. I hope this time I'll learn!

I love this Miracle spray, made this and more washing powder earlier in the week.   Brumington, I too am riddled with Osteoarthritis, this cold weather does not help, my neck is stuffed  (am I allowed to say that).

I can confirm that this stuff makes very light work of illumious pen on white walls. If anybody would like to borrow a three year old to confirm the same I am happy to help out. It does not however replace plaster where said child also managed to get into the LOCKED drawer and also colour the wall with a rather sharp biro.  :-))

Yay, am so happy with this and yes any lovely scent in it is a bonus. This is a quick shot showing some grout I just scrubbed. And it really didn't need a lot of elbow grease iykwim. ;)


Easy to see where I stopped to show the difference!

Wow Lilli I can see the difference. The only problem with this spray is once you start cleaning something you have to keep going :D

I got two oils. One is lemon eucalyptus ( the only eucalyptus i could find yesterday) the other tea tree.
DH is a bit fussy over smells but he says he can tolerate b oth of those.

Now just wondering which one to make first!
