Recipe by Abby Girl

I found this recipe on Pinterest and adapted it to suit my needs. The vinegar does evaporate into the air leaving a nice clean smell! Try different essential oils (eg: Sandalwood/Orange, Lemon/Tea Tree, Geranium/Orange/Sandlewood would be nice combinations)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 5 -10 drops lemon essential oils
  • vegetable oil


  1. Using a 1 tsp measuring spoon, add the essential oil and then finish up with the vegetable oil (equal 1 tsp).
  2. Add the water and vinegar. Soak 2 wash cloths in the solution and then wring out until slightly damp. When the cloth gets dirty, just toss it into the wash and add a new cloth .
  3. You could use any essential oil that you wish in exchange of the lemon -- just note, I used 10 drops and my house smells quite fresh.
