Whether you’re the do-it-yourself type or just looking to save a little cash by avoiding pricy commercial products, making your own dusting solution is a savvy start. Short of living in a bubble, dust is an unavoidable fact of life. Staying on top of the ever-accumulating dust build-up is irritating enough without having to use chemical-laden cleaners to handle it. Making your own dust cleaner saves you money and gets the job done in a manner that is both effective and safe for you and your family.
Things You'll Need
- Lemon juice
- Spray bottle
- Olive or vegetable oil
- Clean cloth
Pour one cup of fresh lemon juice into a spray bottle.
Add one cup of olive or vegetable oil to the lemon juice.
Place the lid on the bottle and shake it to combine the ingredients.
Spray the solution onto a clean, soft cloth for dusting.
Keep the solution in a cool, dry place and shake it to remix it prior to each use.
Tips & Warnings
- Wipe down electronics with a fabric softener sheet. These attract dust magnetically and will help to reduce static.
