I am so excited to share a new DIY series on the blog – natural cleaners! I began to make natural cleaners in preparation for our newest baby who arrived last month. I went into extreme nesting mode and part of the nesting included using less chemicals around the house. This lemon lavender spray is an all natural cleaner with no chemicals that we use every day (because as we know, I have children and they are messy little things, but cute so they can stay).
Get a jump on your spring cleaning and make a bottle or two at home! And, a bonus – the natural cleaner smells so good! The cleaner is very easy to make and essential oils (they make it smell good!) are so popular right now and easy to find everywhere.
DIY Lemon & Lavender Cleaner
50/50 combination of white vinegar & distilled water
15 drops of Lemon Essential Oil
10 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
Pour your water & white vinegar into the spray bottle. Add your drops of essential oil. Shake up your ingredients and clean up your messes! I used a funnel for the vinegar and still spilled some (I am so clumsy). Ironically, I had to grab the Bounty paper towels from my prop pile to clean up the spill, haha (it was a 2 square select-a-size spill) I was really thankful for the quicker picker upper, as I was in the middle of a photo shoot ;)!
My 4 year old likes to “help” clean and she has her own spray bottle of the lemon & lavender cleaner and I just let her spray as much as she wants to clean up around here without any worry about the chemicals.
Bounty paper towels make it easier to clean up with the Select-A-Size rolls, instead of ripping a big bunch of paper towels off, I can use customizable squares depending on the size of mess and avoid wasting paper towels. Particularly helpful when kiddos like to “help” clean up the mess and would innocently use a ton of paper towels when “helping” me. Pick them up here.Do Not use the cleaner on surfaces with marble or granite – vinegar is a big no-no for those surfaces. We like to use the natural cleaner on our tile, flooring, windows, wipe down our metal chairs (the kids get those so gross at meal time!)
