Default Lysol Technique

To create this bubbly looking background, start by spraying glossy cardstock with Memories Mists (or glimmer sprays), or even dye reinkers mixed with water. When dry, spray Lysol All-Purpose Cleaner (or any household cleaner) on the background and watch the magic! Dab some areas of the background with a tissue and let other areas dry naturally. Use as a background.

Have fun creating great backgrounds! Be sure to share your art with us!

That is a pretty cool technique. Does the cleaner have to be a foam cleaner or can it be a liquid cleaner? I have 409 - will that work?

Thanks, Tammy. I used a spray liquid cleaner. I think you will have to experiment with the foam. Suggestion -- do it outside in case there are fumes! Let us know what you discover. OK?

I just re-read your last sentence. 409 spray should work great.

I think it has to do with the alcohol in the cleaner that makes the great background. So, all you may need is a little rubbing alcohol in a mini mister spray bottle and you'll be good to go!

Thanks Deb for sharing!

Thanks for that tip, Nancy. I am running low on Lysol, so I'll try the rubbing alcohol.
