by: Well Made Clothes Staff | 1 month ago | News


In the midst of spring cleaning season, we are cleaning up our homes with natural products and fresh plant life. Enter The Kitchn’s tried and tested DIY cleaning spray using plants from around your house.

This particular recipe calls for the freshness of lemon and thyme, but can also incorporate other natural ingredients like cinnamon, cloves, or any herbs that you have on hand.

The base is vinegar, which has natural cleansing and disinfecting benefits. And to use it, you just spray onto countertops, sinks and toilets, then wipe down with a wet rag.

Here’s how to make your very own DIY cleaning spray, in six simple steps.

ONE
Peel the lemons and mix with sprigs of thyme in a jar. You can substitute here for other garden ingredients like oranges peels, eucalyptus leaves, or lavender

TWO
Add distilled vinegar and infuse in a sunny spot for two weeks

THREE
After infusing, strain out the solids from the vinegar and discard them

FOUR
Pour 1/2 cup of the infused vinegar into a spray bottle


FIVE
Add 2 cups of water, 1 tablespoon of Castile soap and 35 drops of lemon essential oil to the spray bottle

SIX
Swirl the ingredients together
