Homemade Dusting Spray
If you have 5 minutes then you can easily whip up this great DIY dusting spray. It's quick and easy to make, plus you probably have all the ingredients you need at home.
Ingredients You Need
You will need
- olive oil
- lemon essential oil
- a spray bottle
I like to buy my spray bottles in bulk from Amazon. Since I make so many of my homemade cleaners I have found it's nice to have a few around.
You can see the ones I buy here.
To get started on this dusting spray recipe you will want to add 1/2 cup of cool water to the spray bottle.
Then add 1/3 of a cup of olive oil to your spray bottle. I get my olive oil at Aldi, it's usually around $3 dollars a bottle. Also, I sometimes buy it in bulk at Costco.
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.
Using The Homemade Pledge
To use just spray a small amount of the DIY dusting spray 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.
