Thanks to their disinfectant actions, many herbs are the perfect ingredient in homemade cleaning sprays. Vodka offers its antiseptic properties, while lemon, tea tree, and lavender share their antibimicrobial and anti-inflammatory potential. This blend will not only keep your surfaces clean, but will also fill the house with pleasant scents.

  1. Pour all of the ingredients into a glass spray bottle. Put the cap on and give it a shake. Use as often as needed.(5 minutes)

Keep your homemade cleaning spray away from direct sunlight and use it within three to four months. Spray it on kitchen and bathroom surfaces, including doorknobs, faucets, refrigerator handles, and non-porous countertops.
