Try this natural DIY dust cleaner spray for the home.

A homemade dust cleaning spray helps with cleaning without the chemicals. Begin by making an infused vinegar. Do this by peeling one lemon, orange, lime or grapefruit. Put the peels into a mason jar. Add white vinegar to the jar, pouring enough to cover the peels by at least a quarter of an inch. Put a lid and ring on the Mason jar to seal it closed. Allow the peels to soak for two to three days.

After the infused vinegar is ready, get a 16-ounce spray bottle. Add 1 cup of filtered water, ¼ cup of the infused vinegar, 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 15 drops of lemon-scented essential oil. You can substitute another essential oil aroma, such as patchouli or cedar.

This spray has a fresh scent of lemons, but you could also substitute orange or lime essence if preferred. Safely use this dust cleaning spray on cabinetry, shelves, hardwood tables and antique furniture. Store it in a labeled plastic bottle and keep in a dark, dry and cool place for up to two weeks.
