Plain water works well (without the need to purchase expensive specialty cloths) to clean glass and mirrors, dust your furniture and nic nacs, polish your granite and stainless as long as they have never been touched by a conventional product which tends to leave a unfavourable buildup over time.

This recipe replaces your glass cleaner, light all purpose cleaner, granite and marble cleaner, wood floor cleaner, dusting spray, light bathroom and kitchen cleaners.
For most jobs just lightly spray and wipe. (old cotton t-shirts work great for this). It has been proven over and over that you only need a regular cotton or flannel cloth (not a scrubber) to clean most areas…a scrubbing brush is necessary for edges and corners though…the places we cannot really get at with just a cloth.
