I’ve used vodka to make certain things like vanilla extract but did you know you can use it to make a disinfectant as well? This mixture can be used on bathroom surfaces, countertops, tables, appliances, light switches and doorknobs.
The white vinegar and vodka inhibit the growth of germs. The lavender and lemon essential oils are antibacterial and antiseptic.
Vinegar and Vodka Disinfectant
½ cup white vinegar
½ cup vodka
10 drops of lavender essential oil
10 drops lemon essential oil
1 ½ cups water
Pour all the ingredients in to a 24oz spray bottle and shake well. Spray your surfaces and let sit for 10 minutes. Wipe clean.
That’s it, so simple and the smell of the lavender helps relive stress and boost moods so you might actually enjoy cleaning!
It works pretty well as a cleaner although I may have to add a little more essential oil, and the hint of vodka is strong so I feel like I’m cleaning my counters with a vodka tonic!
