- Mix and Match: Don’t be afraid to blend a few drops of different oils to create a signature scent.
Preparing Your Cleaner
- The Base: Ensure your vinegar cleaner is ready. Whether it’s a batch fresh off the mixing bowl or a trusty bottle you’ve been using, make sure there’s enough room to add your oils.
- Add the Oils: Using a dropper, add 10-15 drops of your chosen essential oil or oils into the vinegar cleaner. The quantity may vary based on the volume of cleaner and the intensity of fragrance desired.
Mixing and Testing
- Shake Well: Secure the lid of your cleaner and give it a vigorous shake to disperse the essential oils throughout the mixture.
- Test It Out: Spray a small amount on a surface or in the air to gauge the strength of the scent. Adjust by adding more drops if needed.
Tips for a Fragrant Cleaning Experience
- Use Pure Oils: Ensure the essential oils you use are pure and free from additives to avoid unwanted chemicals.
- Label Creatively: Customize your cleaners with fun, descriptive labels that reflect the scent and the room they’re designed for.
- Refresh As Needed: Over time, the scent may fade. Feel free to freshen up your cleaner with a few more drops of oil.
