Shelf Life: 6 months
Benefits: Vinegar is a cleaning powerhouse! It kills bacteria and dissolves grease, grime, and mildew.
Tips and Tricks: For a deeper clean, follow up with our disinfectant spray.
Avoid using plastic bottles as the essential oils can eat away at the plastic and leach it into the cleaning solution. We recommend metal instead of glass here since it’s easy to break the bottle while you’re cleaning.
Variations: We used citrus essential oils for their cleaning abilities, but also because they add a nice, fresh “clean” scent.
