Everclear® was recently featured in Hello Glow, a popular home and beauty DIY blog. The blog shared the secret to making home cleaning a snap. What was the secret? Everclear!

As a grain-alcohol product with a high proof, Everclear makes an effective disinfectant. And unlike other natural cleaning ingredients, grain alcohol is both color and
fragrance-free, so it won’t leave behind any off-putting smells or stains when done. It’s one of the best supplies to make a home shine!


Clean windows and glass
Combine 1/2 cup Everclear, 1 cup tap water, 3 tbsp white vinegar, and 3 drops of dish soap in a 16-ounce glass spray bottle to make a simple window and glass cleaner. For a light, fresh scent, add five drops of essential oil – three drops of lemon and two basil – directly to the bottle.

Freshen the air
Fill a mister bottle with 1/2 cup Everclear and 1/2 cup water and spray around the house to get rid of odors. To add scent, pour in 40-60 drops of essential oil to the alcohol and let sit for five minutes before adding the water.

Clean and deodorize furniture
Combine 1/2 cup of Everclear with 1/2 cup vinegar and 1 cup water for a simple but effective way to clean and deodorize sofa cushions, car seats, and rugs. Spray liberally on dirty upholstery and scrub using an old rag. Or lightly spritz on curtains, rugs, and furniture to quickly get rid of smells. Do not use on silk fabrics.

Shine stainless steel appliances
To make appliances look shiny and new, combine water and Everclear in a one-to-one ratio in a spray bottle. Spritz onto appliances and wipe away. The alcohol evaporates quickly and doesn’t leave a residue.

Degrease pots and pans
Pour a splash of Everclear onto greasy pots and pans, let it sit for a few minutes, then scrub. Rinse and follow up with regular dish soap and water.
