Homemade Fresh Rosemary Spray Cleaner

 
Hi Friends,
 
If you or someone you know has Rosemary growing in the garden,
 
you have the perfect ingredient for making an All-Purpose cleaner.
 
 
The scent is so FRESH.
 
 It's perfect for kitchens and bathrooms.
 
Rosemary and vinegar have antibacterial and antifungal properties.....
 
so not only does it smell wonderful, it can also clean and disinfect.
 
 
 
To make your Fresh Rosemary Cleaner you will need:
  
 
     2 cups fresh Rosemary
 
              2 cups distilled white vinegar
 
2 cups filtered water

 
 Supplies also needed:

 
a quart size mason or glass jar
 
 
a funnel and cheese cloth or coffee filter for straining

 
 
a glass spray bottle is preferred but you may use plastic
 
if you are not adding additional essential oils
 
 
Directions: 
 
 Collect your Rosemary, avoid blossoms.

Rinse thoroughly. I like to use a salad spinner.
 
 
 
Lay your jar on its side and pack with Rosemary



Fill with water and vinegar
 


Cover with lid, put jar in cool dark place for 5 to 7 days

 
 
I use my Pour over coffee method, the coffee filter works really well.

As you can see it filtered out all the sediment.
 
 
Easy and use that paper filter to clean your counter!
 
 
It is beautiful pale green color.
 
 
Throw away the Rosemary stems.
 
I recycle my Mrs. Meyers Room Spray bottles they work great!
 
 
Fill your spray bottle 1 to 1 ratio- cleaner and water.
 
Store your mason jar with the infused vinegar under the sink!
 
 
 
 This is a good basis cleaning spray-

My favorite use:

Deodorizing the microwave!

  I hope you are enjoying your summer :)

  4. Oh, I am definitely trying this! Question-- does the water have to be hot or can it be room temperature? Thank you!

      My water was room temperature. I think you get a better infusion that way since it sits so long in a cool dark spot. I'm glad you are going to try this!I am spraying the sink often, I love the scent. xo Lisa S
