I don't like using chemical cleaners in my home, so I make most of my cleaners. This saves money and keeps my home chemical free. I tested a few dusting sprays, and this was my favorite.
Time: 5 MinutesCost: $1Difficulty: Easy
I tried dusting sprays with vinegar and lemon juice. The vinegar one worked okay, but I didn't care for the lemon juice version.
Instead, I used a recipe with castile soap, oil, and lemon essential oil.
Fill a spray bottle with a cup of distilled water. Then use a funnel to add 2 teaspoons castile soap and 1 tablespoon olive oil.
The castile soap in the recipe gently cleans. It's safe to use on most surfaces, including wood. The oil moisturizes, makes wood shine, and protects wood.
I also used lemon essential oil for my homemade dusting spray. It's a natural degreaser, and it smells wonderful. You can use other essential oils too. I give a few options and their benefits in my original blog post.
The oil and water do separate as the bottle sits, so give it a good shake just before you use it.
Then spray the dusting spray on a microfiber cloth. Use to dust wood, glass, and just about any other surface. I use it all over my house except for my computer screens and TVs.
