Homemade Antibacterial spray (water-based)

Antibacterial spray

Although the homemade all-purpose natural cleaner which I posted recently, is antibacterial, I wanted to share a basic recipe for a water-based antibacterial spray which can be used on marble, or other delicate surfaces.

It’s another simple one – just two ingredients: water and essential oils!

Take an empty spray bottle, clean it up if you wish and remove old labels (I’ll be posting a trick on this too soon!), then fill with cooled, boiled water, and approximately 20-30 drops essential oil such as: lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus, orange, lemon, pine), and give it a shake.

There you go, all done šŸ™‚

The great thing about this spray is that it also doubles as a fabric freshner, or room spray.

    Hello There,

    I hope this message finds you well.

    About the antibacterial spray (water based), you did mentioned to add the essential oil which is oil based right? How do you mix oil and water? Could i use vinegar?
    What if i apply the spray to fabrics? Will oil stains appear on the fabric?

    I am very intrigued with your post.

    Looking forward for your reply.

    Thank you and have a great day
