Diy Disinfectant Spray With Everclear and Vinegar
People are panic buying all sorts of household supplies in preparation for a possible 14 day quarantine. Things like rubbing alcohol, masks, cleaning supplies and toilet paper are becoming difficult to find.
When you start to run out of cleaning supplies, you’ll need to start making your own if you can’t find any on the store shelves.

Use the funnel to add all the ingredients into the bottle. Screw the spray top back on and gently and give it a little shake.

When the pandemic first started and disinfectants were cleared from the shelves because of the panic to disinfect I bought a gallon of Everclear. Used it straight up, no mixing with water or anything else with no problem. The odor dissipates very quickly. Not saying this post is wrong, but straight up is an option as well.

Thanks for the answer but I never asked a question.
What does vinegar add to the mix?
Your recipe Wasn’t 60% everclear.?
Could you use this on fabrics/upholstery and carpets to freshen and disinfect??
