Add Grease Cutting Power To Your Vinegar Cleaner

I keep finding more ways to adapt my standard vinegar cleaner to my various cleaning needs. The latest way I have found to adapt it is by adding a squirt of dishsoap to help cut through the grease when I clean. The vinegar cleaner itself seems to work well for the most part, but adding the dishsoap into seems to give it a little bit more power in grease cutting. This is basically my standard vinegar cleaner, plus some dishsoap. Here is the adjusted recipe:

Grease Cutting Vinegar Cleaner

1 part vinegar
3 parts water
10-20 drops of your favorite essential oil
1 squirt of liquid dishsoap

Combine ingredients in a liquid spray bottle. Shake well before each use.
