Did you know that dust wipes exist? Yes, you no longer need to spray an all-purpose cleaner and wipe it with a cloth in order to dust all surfaces in your home – you can make your own dust wipes which you can store and pull out whenever you need to do so!
It’s so convenient and, believe me, will save you some money. If you don’t like using commercial cleaners then this is just the recipe for you! I know I don’t like buying cleaning products – they contain way too many chemicals some of which are actually toxic. That is why I enjoy making my own cleaners – using ingredients which are cheap and natural!
What is the recipe?
You don’t need any fancy ingredients. In fact, a huge portion of the recipe includes different essential oils which will leave your home smelling amazing right after using the dust wipes and honestly, this is probably why this recipe is a favourite of mine!
Now, you need 3 cups of filtered water, 2 tablespoons of olive oil. a tablespoon of vinegar, and 3 different essential oils (add 10 drops from each essential oil – 30 drops total).
I use lemon, orange, and tea tree since I adore the combination but you can customize the recipe and use whatever you prefer.
You would also need cloths, towels, or an old shirt cut in small pieces for the “wipes”.
Mix all of the ingredients in a spray bottle and shake well.
Lay down the “wipes” you decided to use and spray them with the cleaner. I recommend you lightly damp them. Shake the spray bottle well before spraying each wipe since we want the olive oil to be able to be distributed on each wipe.
When you are ready, fold the wipes and place them in a lidded jar.
