I’ve known about using vinegar as a cleaner for a long time. But have you smelled vinegar before? Thats’s why I stuck to using conventional cleaning wipes for most of my regular “dirty jobs,” like wiping my desk every couple days.
But those smell too, and it’s a more sinister chemical-laden smell, as opposed to a clearly harmless but astringent odour like vinegar’s. Anyway, I turned to the internet and found this recipe for a homemade cleaning spray that smells good and works wonders.
You probably already have everything you need for this in your pantry and fridge. You will need one cup of white vinegar, one cup of water, the zest of a whole lemon (I used a potato peeler to make the job easy), and 10–15 tea tree oil drops.
Put everything in a glass or plastic spray bottle and you’re done.
I was really surprised by how much fragrance the lemon zest adds to this. I’ve been cleaning my desk with this and getting great results. This is also a low-waste option.
