DIY Dusting Spray

As you can probably tell from the photos I’m still in bed most of the time. If all goes as planned I should have my cast off in a few weeks and then I can put weight on my ankle. It’s going to feel amazing to finally be in a boot, even though I’m probably going to have it on for another 4 months.

I wanted to share with you how I make Dusting Spray. It’s really easy, natural, and you probably already have everything you need.

1 cup Water
1/4 cup White Vinegar
2 teaspoons Olive Oil
12-15 drops Essential Oil

Dusting Spray Ingredients

You can use any kind of spray bottle but I prefer glass bottles. Add the water to the bottle first. Add the vinegar to cut through grease and grime and disinfect the surface. Then and the olive oil to shine and protect the wood.

I use lemon essential oil because I like the clean fresh scent but you can use any oil you like. Wild orange and Lavender are other scents I like to use.

Dusting Spray 3

Shake well! Because oil and water don’t mix you will need to shake well before every use and several times if you are using it a lot during one cleaning session. The liquid looks yellow but don’t worry, it sprays on clear.

Dusting Spray 5

Spray directly onto the wood surface then wipe with a clean micro fiber cloth.

This is my bedside table. Bye, bye fingerprints and awful dust! It looks so great now and it repels the dust longer too.

I added a little Christmas decor to my bedside table. Now to get the rest of the house decked out for the holidays.

    DIY dusting spray – that’s cool. Sometimes I clean surfaces with just wet clout but it’s not easy to clean with just wet clout, from time to time you need to disinfect or deep clean, so just water is not a solution anymore. But, for example, if you have young children at home, maybe you don’t want to use those products with chemicals but use something more natural. And I think those DIY products are the best, as they also help to save some money.
    I’ll definitely try the DIY dusting spray you suggested. Hope it works really fine.

    Why I really like this? It can be made with no scent whatsoever. Wonderful if you have allergies – my husband is allergic to most artificial scents. I like dusting spray, but Lemon Pledge? Yeah, if I want to poison my husband (which I don’t! I like him!). I did put in a couple drops of Rosemary EO – as in, literally, 2, not 12-15. You can overdo even harmless natural scents.
