Lemon Rosemary Scented All Purpose Cleaner Concentrate

Lemon Rosemary Scented All Purpose Cleaner Concentrate

When I saw this recipe for an all natural scented all-purpose cleaner, I knew I had to try it right away.  but it takes 2 weeks to store it.  I’m a bit of an impatient one and I had to try to forget it for two weeks after mixing this by doing other DIY stuff that does not require you to store it LOL ( you can check some of my blogs about those here)  now back to this All Purpose Lemon Rosemary Cleaner. I’m excited to share this to all of you (thanks to the yummy life blog)

All Purpose Lemon Rosemary Vinegar Cleaner

What you will need:

White vinegar

Lemon peels

Rosemary Twigs

essential oil – lavender

vanilla extract

**yup that’s all you need**

How:

put lemon peel inside a jar and some rosemary twigs

fill your jar with white vinegar until it covers all the lemon peel and rosemary.

add 3 to 4 drops of the lavender essential oil and a few drops of the  vanilla extract

cover the lid and put a mark  on it on the day you mixed it, i used post- it and taped it on the lid.

Store for 2 weeks

After 2 weeks of storing:

Use a strainer and pour the mixture in a pitcher (easier for you to transfer it to the spray bottle, that’s what i did)

Pour 2/3 cups of the scented vinegar in your spray bottle and 1 and 1/3 cups of water (i used a 16 oz spray bottle)

add 3 to 4 drops of your lavender essential oil and a few 1 to 2 drops of your vanilla extract

dilute and add more scent if you wish

Store the remaining Lemon Rosemary Vinegar concentrate in an air tight jar so you can mix again once you’ve finished your first one. (economical, don’t you think)

shake a bit and use

( who would want your house to stink anyway)  So tonight I made some DIY Febreze or Air Freshner with what I had in my kitchen and im so happy with the outcome.  Let me share it with you.
