Homemade Disinfectant Spray
With the cold and flu season upon us here in the Midwest, I thought I would share a quick recipe for a disinfecting spray. This is adapted from the book The Naturally Clean Home. It is full of quick and easy herbal alternatives for cleaning just about everything! I use this spray for everything. It's great for walls, tables, toys, doorknobs, or any place people touch. I have one in the kitchen and one for the bathrooms. Just spray it on and wipe it down with a damp sponge or cloth.
Disinfectant Spray Formula
1 cup water
1 cup vinegar (don't worry the smell goes away when it dries)
5 drops tea tree essential oil
5 drops thyme essential oil (I use lemon or lavender essential oils)
Tea tree, Thyme, lemon and lavender are antibiotic, antibacterial, anti fungal and antiviral. There are others too, but these are the ones I use most often. I put it all in a spray bottle and go around my house spraying and wiping every surface- happy disinfecting!
