If you dust very often, you know that using a dusting spray really helps to get all the dust. However, you may be a little concerned about all the chemicals that you are also spraying into the air. Or maybe you are trying to save some money. This dusting spray doesn’t have all the chemicals that Pledge does, plus is much cheaper than Pledge.
If you have 5 minutes then you can easily whip up this great DIY dusting spray. You will need olive oil, water, lemon essential oil and a spray bottle.
Add 1/3 of a cup of olive oil to your spray bottle. I get my olive oil at Aldi, it’s usually around $2-3 dollars a bottle.
Then add 1/2 cup of cool water to the spray bottle.
Finally, add around 10-15 drops of lemon essential oil. You can add more or less depending on how strong you like your dusting spray to smell. I am not brand picky with essential oils, but I do love Fabulous Frannie essential oils. I have noticed that they are just as good as the more expensive brands but cost much less. You can head over here to grab one of their gift sets or just buy one bottle. They are usually less than $5 a bottle.
Then add the spray top and gently shake the bottle to mix the oil and water.
To use just spray a small amount on a dust cloth. I love these microfiber cloths. Then wipe the wood surface to get a beautiful shine. It is natural for the oil and water to separate, so you will need to shake the container before you use it each time.
I love how easy this is to make, plus it saves me money. I think it works just as well if not better than Pledge or any other brand of dusting spray. Want more cleaning recipes and tips? You can go here to follow me on Pinterest for all of my cleaning tips and recipes.
