Lots to show today some that I should have shown in January. First the Weather vane cross stitch.
I found a Betty Boop freebie on a embroidery site and I knew I had some scraps left over from a piece that Marina had sent me a while ago.
On Saturday I picked the first three Cucumbers from the other lot that I planted. I decided to pick them when they were not quite fully grown as the weather is heating up again this week.
I found a wonderful floor/tile grout cleaner on the net but it used Dawn Dish washing Liquid which is not available here in Australia so I have Australianised it with Morning Fresh Concentrate.
All you need is two ingredients. Heat 1 cup of Vinegar in the microwave and add this to 1/2 cup of the Morning Fresh Concentrate and put in a spray bottle.. The original recipe used 1 cup of dish washing liquid but as this is a concentrate I decided to scale this back to 1/2 cup.I purchased a spray bottle from Coles but this was an absolute waste as it is called a Trigger Spray Bottle only problem it didn't trigger at all.The mixture is now in a old Shower Power bottle. You only need a small amount, it is very soapy. I squirt a little on the floor and use either a tile grout scrubbing brush or just a plain old scrubbing brush and get down on my knees and scrub away. I put the brush into a bucket of water every now and again and you soon have very clean grout and tiles.It soaps up so I have my Enjo Mop on hand and a old towel to wipe the floor. After many years of trying different cleaning products I will be using this recipe from now on. It is also good to clean down benches/sink, you only need a small amount for this task as well.
Let me know if you try the cleaning recipe.
Hope you have a wonderful week.
