Homemade All-purpose Countertop Spray (works on Granite!) :
3 cups hot water
1 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 tsp liquid castile soap (I used Dr. Bronner's lavender)
10 drops lavender essential oil
Use a cleaned-out spray bottle from a cleaner that you use up, I like the white one because I can write the "recipe" on the bottle. Shake it up, and you're good to go!
This recipe is crazy cheap, here's the break-down:
1 cup of vinegar - I buy 1.32 gallons of vinegar from Costco for ~$3, so this works out to: $0.19
1/4 tsp castile soap - I bought 32oz from Amazon for $16, so this works out to: $0.021
10 drops lavender oil - bought on Amazon for $9.99, so this works out to: $0.05
Grand Total: $0.261
Compared to ~$3 for a spray you'd buy at Target, that's a 10 on the cheap scale. And it's also very green and safe, no chemicals to worry about with your food or the kiddos.
I'm sharing this on frugal days, sustainable ways today!
