My ongoing search for a non-aerosol disinfectant spray that didn't cost a million dollars was motivation to mix up a three ingredient DIY Refresh Spray.
This bottle works wonders refreshing bed linen, curtains and fabric furniture (always do a swatch test). Because of the essential oils; it doubles as an antibacterial spray. We use it liberally on backpacks and clothing.
DIY Room + Fabric Refresh
In a gallon jug, mix 16 oz. of rubbing alcohol (vodka can be subbed), 1 oz or more of your favorite essential oil blend (eucalyptus, rosemary and lemon are natural antibacterials and blend well together), and 64 oz. of water. Shake well and pour into glass spray bottles.
You can leave one in your entryway and linen closet for easy access...
DIY General Cleaner
In a gallon jug, mix 8 oz. rubbing alcohol (or vodka), 8 oz. white vinegar, 1 oz. lemon essential oil, and 64 oz. of water. Shake well and pour into glass spray bottles.
DIY General Cleaner can be used on so MANY surfaces (glass, wood, counter tops and floors) and is economical and a cinch to make.
