I had fun dusting today. (Hey there’s a sentence I thought I’d never write!) But it’s true! I enjoy cleaning more than I used to now that I’ve learned how to make my own cleaners. This homemade furniture dusting spray is one of my favorites and I really do have fun spraying it in the nooks and crannies of the scrollwork on my furniture and watching it get nice and clean.
This homemade furniture dusting spray is a money saving and natural replacement for commercial cleaners like Endust or Pledge. It’s quick and easy to make using water, olive oil, and vinegar. I like to add Lemon Essential Oil too because it’s a nice fragrance boost that balances out the vinegar smell, but if you don’t have any, you can leave it out. Want to give it a try too? Here’s how to do it:
HOMEMADE FURNITURE DUSTING SPRAY
1-3/4 cups water
1/4 cup white distilled vinegar
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon lemon essential oil (about 8 to 10 drops)
Combine the ingredients in a clean spray bottle of at least a 16 oz size. Shake well to mix. To use, spray onto wooden furniture and wipe off with a soft cloth to dust and clean the surface. You’ll have to keep shaking this mixture as you use it to keep the oil and water mixed together, which really isn’t a big deal. You already have the bottle in your hand to spray it, just give it a shake too!
