How to Make Non-Toxic Household Cleaning Spray

Making a homemade cleaning spray is easy and you probably already have what you need to make it at home. Creating a cleaning vinegar is the same process as making an herbal tincture. Many of the store bought cleaners contain unhealthy ingredients (even ones that look natural) so making your own is a good alternative.

You will need:

  • Mason jar with a plastic lid
  • Glass or plastic spray bottle with a label
  • White vinegar
  • Plant matter of your choice, possibilities include:
    • Pine needles
    • Lemon peels
    • Orange peels
    • Grapefruit peels
    • Lavender flowers
    • Eucalyptus leaves
    • Peppermint leaves
    • Cloves
    • Cinnamon sticks

How to Make Cleaning Spray Step by Step

  1. Pack a mason jar with your plant matter.
  2. Pour vinegar over the plant matter until you have filled the jar and close the lid.
  3. Let the jar sit for 3-8 weeks.
  4. After the time is up, strain out the vinegar and pour into a spray bottle. You can use this herb press to get out every last drop (but it's not necessary). Be sure to label your bottle.
  5. Optional: add a drop of liquid castile soap for extra cleaning strength.
