I will admit I was a little intimidated to make my own natural cleaners. I have tried many expensive natural cleaning brands over the years and some just didn’t do the job. This dust spray on the other hand surprised me at how well it worked. I even showed it off to a friend and she immediately went home a made a bottle for herself too! I have literally, never purchased another dust remover since making this Lemon Cedar Dust Spray and Polish. Try it for yourself today and don’t forget the easy printable label in the Resource Library.
