What does Triple-A homemade cleaner contain?

Essentially, the main ingredients of this product are ammonia, alcohol, and water. To make it, you’ll only need to have these three products on hand and it’s likely that you already have them at home. Of these three ingredients, the most powerful is ammonia, which gives Triple-A its powerful degreasing and stain-removing potential.

When it comes to alcohol, this product makes Triple-A household cleaner a brilliant polish. Although adding alcohol may make you believe that this product is suitable for disinfecting surfaces, the truth is that it loses this property when mixed with the other two components.

How to prepare this homemade product

One of the videos on TikTok teaches you how to make Triple-A homemade cleaner and it’s gone viral. It’s published on the Spanish TikTok account @yolandavaquitayoli. We’ve translated it for you and written the exact ingredients and instructions below.

You’ll need a spray container to mix the water, alcohol, and ammonia. While you can use regular or rubbing alcohol, it’s best to use one that’s 96 percent proof. If you don’t have alcohol, you can use some cologne and the benefit of doing this means you’ll also have some of your favorite fragrance added to the mix.

Considering that ammonia is a chemical, you’ll need to wear protective glasses for your eyes and gloves to protect your hands. Also, don’t forget to make sure you prepare your Triple-A homemade cleaner in a well-ventilated area.

Moreover, you’ll need a measurer to calculate three equal parts of each of the ingredients. Depending on the container you’re going to use, you could use about 1.7 US fluid ounces of each substance.

What can you clean with Triple-A?

As we mentioned before, Triple-A household cleaner is a powerful degreaser and stain remover. Now that you know how to prepare it, it’s time to tell you about the items you can use it on.

1. Use Triple-A household cleaner to clean your WC

You can clean your bathroom with this product, especially on the inside of your WC. Just spray the Triple-A on the affected area, let it sit for a few minutes, then scrub. Finish by rinsing it away with clean water.

If you notice that any grime still remains, repeat the process until you get the expected result. You could let the mixture act for a few minutes more than the previous time.

2. The tiles

Tiles in the bathroom and kitchen accumulate grease and grime, and if you don’t regularly remove this, grime can stick and make cleaning difficult.

Take your Triple-A homemade cleaner and spray it on any affected areas, let it act for ten minutes and then rinse with a damp cloth. By doing this, you’ll be able to eradicate grease, mold, dust, and all kinds of dirt.

3. Windows

Clean water stains on windows.
Leave your windows clean and shiny with the Triple-A homemade cleaner.

Windows, shower screens, and mirrors accumulate grease and dust. Eventually, they’ll fog up and appear dirty. Luckily, this is now a thing of the past when you use Triple-A cleaner. To get them shiny and clean, spray the product on the surface of the glass, let it act for a few minutes, rub it with a damp cloth, and buff it dry. If required, you can use glass cleaner for extra shine.

4. The faucets

Faucets tend to cloud up and lose their shine due to constant contact with soap and water. If this is happening to your faucets, Triple-A will leave them looking like new. To use it, simply spray it on, and let it act before rinsing and drying to restore shine and vitality.

5. Use Triple-A homemade cleaner on your sofa

Your Triple-A homemade cleaner is so powerful that you can even use it to clean your sofa. Of course, to obtain the best results you should vacuum your sofa before you begin. 

Next, test the product in an inconspicuous area to ensure the fabric is unaffected. Whether it’s safe to use or not depends on the manufacturer and the type of fibers used in its construction. If it passes the test, then apply the product and rub the sofa with a cloth until any stains are gone.

Then, take a damp cloth (dampened only with water) and rub the sofa to remove any dirt and product remains. Finish with a dry cloth and open the windows to ventilate and help dry the sofa.

How will you use Triple-A homemade cleaner?

As you’ve learned, this homemade cleaner is easy to prepare and has considerable benefits when it comes to cleaning. With this single product, you can leave different areas of the house shining. Of course, we recommend that you mark your container so that you know what’s inside. Also, don’t forget to store it out of reach from children and animals as it’s dangerous to health if it’s ingested.
