How To: Make All-Purpose Vinegar Spray

Posted by Laura

PEC. Loves. Vinegar. We love doing laundry with vinegar, eating vinegar, cleaning with vinegar, and de-skunking with vinegar.

For cleaning purposes it's a natural disinfectant, antibacterial, and anti-fungal. I've had the same bottle of Fantastik® sitting in my cabinet for about four years now. It's level has slooooowly gone down, ever since I started using vinegar spray. Don't get me wrong, there is something to be said about the squeaky clean feeling that heavy-duty cleaners leave behind, but I'd rather breathe in clean air and live headache-free. Here's a great recipe for an all-purpose vinegar spray.

Recipe for All-Purpose Vinegar Spray
(very similar to Kristin's Vinegar Spray)

-1 cup distilled white vinegar
-2 cups warm water
-1 teaspoon washing soda (can be found in the laundry section at the store)
-15 drops lavender essential oil
-15 drops tea tree essential oil (natural anti-fungal)

  1. Combine ingredients in a spray bottle. 
  2. Use on counter tops, bathrooms, floors, etc.
  3. Do a jig in your clean-and-free-of-chemicals home! If you don't know what a jig is, ehow has written an article about it here. True story. How would we survive without ehow?
