My Homemade Green Cleaner Labeling Privileges Have Been Revoked

I make homemade green cleaners. I know exactly what is in them, making them takes a few minutes, and they are less expensive. For the most part, my homemade cleaners clean the same or, as in the case of my homemade daily shower cleaner, better than their store bought counter parts. Woot! Woot!

 I store my cleaners in empty and repurposed spray bottles. I finally got around to making labels for the bottles  I worked too hard on my half bathroom remodel to ruin the granite counter tops with a homemade vinegar based cleaner from the other bathrooms by mistake!

I gave up printing designs in super cute and colorful ink because the cartridges in my inkjet dried out. AGAIN!

I went with black laser print ink that never runs dry instead of plunking down $80 for color ink cartridges to do a whim project. Since I could not do super cute and colorful label designs, I went with decorative fonts.

Granite Cleaner, Bathroom Cleaner

Things started to get weird.

Vodka Fabric Refresher – Not for Doggies, I Don’t Want to Share. (I use pet safe Green + Clean fabric refresher for Blitzkrieg furniture and surfaces.)

Laundry Stain Remover – Lady MacBeth’s BFF

WATER – In Case of Wicked Witch attack or wrinkly clothes. Either way, you’re covered.

 Then I started having fun with the project. 

Be afraid.
I switched the bottle of my straight up undiluted vinegar kitchen counter, microwave; window cleaner and vegetable wash from this

To this

Vinegar for cleaning – If ingested, be prepared to get pickled. Mmm…pickles…

Air Freshener for uh, YOU KNOW (This bottle has to sit on the bathroom counter.
Husband has Out of Sight Out of Mind disease and a high fiber diet. You do the math.)

I attached the labels with Mod Podge to the repurposed spray bottles.

Husband says I’m absolutely forbidden from showing you the label I made for the toilet tank.
