Today is the day our orange-infused vinegar is ready! Time to get dusting!
What: Non-Toxic Dust Spray
3 cups water
1 cups citrus-infused vinegar (make your own! See how HERE)
3 teaspoons olive oil
1 spray bottle (we used an old cleaned out method bottle)
After the infused vinegar, add the water.
Last, but not least add your olive oil.
There you have it; cheap, easy, non-toxic and low-waste!
Give it a few shakes before you use it to incorporate the olive oil. Also, remember to do your research before using it on just any surface! Maybe test it out on a small, inconspicuous spot before cleaning your entire home with it!
Dusting is important. Not only does it look great, it also gets rid of harmful particulate that float around in the air and settle on your knick-knacks.
