I’ll admit. Dusting is not one of my favorite things to do around the house, but with this Homemade Dusting Spray, I end up with dust-free shelves and tables, plus the house smells great!
I just love making my own homemade cleaners. They generally cost much less and are made with all natural, non-toxic ingredients. Non-toxic means they are safe around kids, so perfect for the kids to help out with a new chore. Plus I almost always have all of the ingredients on hand and they are super easy to make.
This dusting spray is a great cleaner, helps to repel dust and keep it from settling (so you’ll dust less) and it’s non-toxic, so safe to use around kids and pets. And it doesn’t include all of those harsh ingredients some of the store bought dusting sprays have.
What you Need:
1 cup water
1/4 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
15 drops of your favorite essential oil (I love using Lemon for this)
What you Do:
>> Pour all ingredients together in an empty spray bottle
>> Shake well to combine all ingredients
When using this homemade dusting spray, it is best to spray on a soft cloth and not directly on the furniture. And because the water and oil don’t mix well, you will want to shake well before each use.
The vinegar is a great all-purpose cleaner, and lemon essential oils are anti-baterial. The combination makes for a great cleaner.
This DIY dusting spray will also help prevent dust from settling, with the help of the olive oil. So you should be dusting less often which is great for me! For those of you who love to dust, you may not find that as much of a plus. :)
I love that this dusting spray is safe around the kids! Plus it will cost you less than $0.50 per batch to make! A wonderful money saver! I always have these ingredients on hand in my home, so I never run out of dusting spray.
