Homemade Cleaning Spray (cheap!)
This homemade cleaning spray is SUPER easy to make (did I use the word super enough in the video?! I was excited) not to mention dirty cheap! It uses strong alcohol and vinegar to cut the grim and remove the germs and the bad odors from nasty counter tops. Works great in the kitchen, bathroom, and really anywhere. See notes for more information.
1 cup water
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup strong alcohol – vodka, everclear, moonshine, white lightning, etc
1/2 to 2 teaspoons essential oils like lemon
few drops dish soap
Mix all ingredients in a quality spray bottle and lightly shake to combine. That’s it!
Note: If you have an issue with using dish soap or oils then leave them out. I will do a video later showing how I clean my counters but this spray works great without it. That being said, I haven’t had an issue with soak residue or damage to counter tops. I have used this formula on different types of counters and it’s been successful.
Note: Research has told me that vodka might not be strong enough to kill germs like salmonella. Half of the internet says yes, half doesn’t. To be on the safe side I would suggest using something stronger such as white lightning or moonshine or everclear. Something above 80 proof. Vodka itself is around 80 proof but everclear is 190. So you can see how much stronger it is. The choice is up to you and both are extremely cost friendly.
