Homemade Spray Cleaner Recipe



Scented Spray Cleaner

Photo © Erin Huffstetler

Here's a recipe for a scented spray cleaner submitted by Jeanne:


1/4 cup of dishwashing soap
1/4 cup of white vinegar
2 tsp of Borax
3 1/2 cups of hot water
Lemon or citrus essential oil (5-6 drops or more)


Mix and pour into a spray bottle.

Jeanne says: Cleaning chemicals really bother me, so I am always looking for alternatives. I use this in every room of the house, and like to add lemon oil to the solution. It cuts through grease; and since I always have these ingredients around the house, I never run out of cleaner.
