Disinfecting cleaner

  • 1¼ cups water
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • ¼ cup vodka or rubbing alcohol (extra germ-killing properties in addition to the vinegar)
  • 15 drops essential oils

Combine all ingredients and pour into a glass spray bottle. Spray surface and let sit 10 minutes before wiping.

Marble and granite cleaner

I am guessing that you can find more than just marble or granite to clean once you try this recipe—it’s amazing! It’s definitely one of my favorites!

  • 3 tablespoons rubbing alcohol
  • 1½ cups water
  • 1 teaspoon castile or dish soap (if you want your spray to smell like your dish soap, use that)

Mix and store in a glass spray bottle. I use this daily on the kitchen counters—it’s perfect for granite.
