Natural Dusting Spray

I wanted to write a quick post about another natural cleaning product I made today. I had pretty much switched over completely to chemical free cleaners, but I hadn't found something I was crazy about for dusting. I liked the swifter duster, but it also seemed pretty wasteful to me.

So, thanks to the internet, one of the first blogs I clicked on had a great recipe. A blog called homemade mothering was where I got the recipe. I did switch mine up a bit though. Here it is:

Homemade Dusting Spray:
1 cup white vinegar 
1/2 teaspoon mineral oil (the stuff used on wooden cutting boards) 
3 cups of water 
Several drops of tangerine essential oil

I guess some may want to do natural cleaners to avoid the lemon or citrus smell, but I sort of like that fresh and clean smell. The essential oils aren't near as strong as chemical cleaners though, and I thought helped to hide the vinegar smell.

Well as you can see in the picture above, Blanche woke up while writing this post. So I'm finishing it in the car on my phone today. We are on our way to Fayetteville to buy Blanche a new amber teething necklace. Hers went down the bathtub drain, and she's getting her molars. That calls for a new one! Happy Saturday!

  1. Bummer! I hope those new teeth come in fast.

    Have you seen the Swiffer type dusters at the Dollar Tree? It's more a tool than a cleaner but you can take the duster off the handle & throw it in the wash. I keep a few of them & use them all the time.
