homemade eco-friendly all-purpose countertop spray

Another added bonus about using eco-friendly cleaning products is that they are very safe (as long as you use common sense) for children to use with you. I was trying to set up a green cleaning 'shot' and as soon as North saw the spray bottle he wanted to shine the whole house. 

1/4 cup white vinegar
2 tbs bi-carb soda (baking soda)
2 cups water
10-12 drops of essential oil

Put all ingredients in a spray bottle and store in a cool place.
Shake gently before use.
Spray and wipe to your heart's content.
Choose whatever essential you like- pine, rosemary and cloves are a few of my winter favourites, while citrusy scents are great for the warmer seasons.

Thanks! I was looking for a good spray for the counter!

Hey Meagan, I use basically the same, but don't normally put the bicarb in it... Does this keep for a while with the bicarb in it?
Will have to give it a go. Thanks, Rhi xx
