Everyone seems to have their own “thing” and I have discovered that saving money is mine! I love to find ways to cut our expenses without sacrificing our quality of life. One way that I do this is by making my own cleaning supplies. Last week I showed you how I make my laundry powder and this week I am making an All-Purpose Antibacterial Spray!
Homemade Antibacterial Spray
3 cups water
1/2 cup vinegar
10-15 drops tea tree oil
2-3 drops of dish liquid (optional)
Pour the water into your spray bottle. I use a funnel here, but if you are feeling brave then you can skip the funnel.
Add 1/2 cup of white vinegar to the water. White vinegar is used in almost every cleaning product that I make and I also use it as an alternative to bleach. It is a safe, natural, and very effective product.
Drop in 10-15 drops of essential oils. I use Tea Tree oil from Bulk Apothecary for its antibacterial properties. According to WebMD, the chemicals in Tea Tree oils may kill bacteria & fungus and reduce allergic skin reactions.
I also add a couple drops of dish liquid for extra grease busting power, but this is an optional ingredient.
Shake it up and your All-Purpose Antibacterial Solution is ready to go! I use this solution on everything from my kitchen to the bathrooms & bedrooms. Sometimes I even use it to spot mop my floors! Seriously amazing stuff!
Do you make any of your own cleaning supplies? If you make any with my recipes, please let me know how you like them!
