homemade kitchen cleaning spray.

this is an all-purpose spray that i use for cleaning everything in the kitchen. both lavender and lemon oils are natural antimicrobials.

250ml white vinegar
half teaspoon natural dishwashing liquid
250ml water
half teaspoon lavender essential oil
half teaspoon lemon essential oil

combine all ingredients into a spray bottle. shake well.

  1. Thanks for sharing this 'recipe' - I have been using a similar concoction lately but I like the addition of lemon oil in yours.

  2. Ooh, I like the sound of this.
    Think I need to get my act together and make more of these kind of things for around the house.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I will be trying this...I make my own during Winter with Vinegar and citrus peel, but I do love the smell of lavender. I often put out little dishes of lemon peel and lavender essential oil as a room freshener...thank you for stopping by my blog...I live at the base of the hills........Suzanne.

  4. Great little tip. I think the homemade cleaners are the way to go, they can save you a bunch of money and of course your health!
