natural de-gunker recipe

I just spot-cleaned my kitchen floor using this recipe and while I was doing it, I was thinking..."i have to tell my mom friends about this!!!" So here it is:

Put these ingredients in a spray bottle:
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp Borax
1/2 tsp dish soap
2 c hot water

My favorite way to use it is for my kitchen floor. I just spot clean - spray everywhere that has dried on dirt, food, etc... and wait a couple minutes (it doesn't take long!) and wipe up with a warm cloth. It comes right off with no scrubbing!! No more mopping for me! Spot cleaning it is.
ps. what's even's natural!!
