Wth all the hubub lately about Febreeze containing very harmful and cancer-causing ingredients I felt it only suitable to post this how to guide on making your own cleaners and fresherners.

All you need is a large jar, white or apple cider vinegar and the scent of choice. (I recommend lemon since it has antibacterial qualities too!)

Add the vinegar to the jar and cut up the lemon and place it in the jar too. Leave this sealed tight for 3 weeks and remove the lemon.

To use as a cleaning spray, simply dilute into water. 1 part lemon vinegar to 3 parts water.

Other mixes can include:

  • Lemon Thyme
  • Lemon Rosemary
  • Lemon Mint
  • Lime Thyme
  • Orange Clove
  • Orange Cardomom
  • Grapefruit
  • Lavender

[NOTE: Undiluted vinegar can errode paintwork on cars and other surfaces so please be careful!]
