How I started with Zero Waste Cleaners 

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. Have you had that experience too?

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!

This was the first zero cleaner I ever made. With its success, I was spurred on to make more and eventually replaced everything I was buying with homemade cleaners. I later shared this with 6 Cleaners to Stop Buying and Start Making.

If you’re just beginning to make your own zero waste cleaners you’ve picked a great place to start with this wood spray and polish! Here’s how to make it and what you’ll need.

Homemade Dust Spray Ingredients:

1 cup distilled or filtered water

½ cup white distilled vinegar

½ cup olive oil

10 drops lemon essential oil

8 drops cedarwood essential oil

16 oz glass spray bottle 

How to Make Homemade Dust Spray and Furniture Polish:

1. Using a funnel pour 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup white vinegar, and 1/2 cup olive oil into a spray bottle (this set of 15 glass bottles is a must for making zero waste cleaners).

How To Use:

To use this zero waste wood cleaner shake lightly before each use.  Then spray a small amount onto a cloth and apply it to wood surfaces to remove dust. Find a detailed look at my favorite zero waste cleaning tools here.

One important thing to remember when making homemade cleaners is to always add a label. Grab a dust spray label and more printables in the Life-n-Reflection Resource Library.

Print the Lemon Cedar Homemade Dust Spray label on sticker paper or on lightweight cardstock and attach it with clear packing tape. Or opt for a vinyl decal as I make for all my cleaners with a Cricut machine.
