I hate artificial smells & perfumes and anything too heavily scented, even if it is natural. Overly strong smells make me twitchy and sneezy. So when I grabbed a couple of these amber glass spray bottles, I decided to try out my own natural cleaning concoction.
I started with a large glass jar and filled it with white vinegar. I dropped in two cinnamon sticks
Then, I let the vinegar solution sit for two weeks in a sunny spot in my kitchen. It turned this lovely amber color after just a couple of days. I let is soak until the cinnamon and orange smell were noticeable over the vinegar smell. When it was ready to use, I filled a spray bottle with half water, half vinegar solution. I then added a few drops of Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castille citrus soap. I use it on my counter tops, sink, cabinets, bathroom, table — anything needing a wipe down.
I’ll be needing this spray in large quantities in the next couple of weeks, as this is my current view. This is from my dining room table, which is currently located in my living room, just in front of the fire place. Gus is loving the ability to snag fun items out of boxes and tubs (i.e. sponges, paintbrushes, cups, spoons…)
Pray to to Gods of house renovation for me. More on all of this later.
