  1. Using a funnel, add all ingredients to a glass spray bottle. Since a large amount of essential oils are being used, make sure to use glass.
  2. Give mixture a good shake before spraying each time.

If you don't like evergreen or pine scents, you can easily swap this with peppermint which I do for my mom when I make this cleaner for her!

If you don't have a winter dish soap to use, just swap it out with your favorite or whatever you have on hand. Please visit our blog post to read more about why we use dish soap, what we recommend, and more!
