Dust Fighting Natural Room Spray – DIY
1/4 cup (60 ml) water
1/4 cup (60 ml) vodka
20 drops essential oil of your choice
One of the ironies of housecleaning is the amount of debris than can linger in the air long after a good round of vacuuming and sweeping. For people with indoor allergies, this can be decidedly unpleasant. To minimize the dust haze and help things settle down faster after cleaning, consider making a batch of this fresh-scented room spray. You can even customize the formula if you like with your favorite mix of essential oils – you might try a warm combination of cinnamon, clove, and orange for autumn, or a floral bouquet of lavender and rose for spring and summer. Whatever mix of essential oils you choose, fill a 4-ounce (120 ml) spray bottle with equal parts vodka and water, and then add about 20 drops essential oil. Shake well before using and spray generously as the finishing step of your housecleaning routine filling the air with a light mist that will trap floating air particles as it settles.
