The most versatile DIY product ever.

I’m slowly but surely breaking my product habit, since I started reading about the kinds of chemicals that are used in cosmetics and household cleaners. So far I’ve made, stopped using  or found a replacement for: laundry soap, shampoo, conditioner, facewash, all-purpose cleaner, glass cleaner and scouring powder for the bathroom. My favorite recipe so far has to be this awesome spray, since it counts as a DIY cleaning product and a DIY beauty product. I’d post a picture tutorial, but there’s really no point, since there’s only one step involved.

You can use this for:

  • Anti-acne body spray
  • Anti-bacterial fabric refresher
  • All-purpose cleaner
  • Deodorant body spray
  • Insect repellent
  • Deodorizing spray for hair
  • Anti-odor foot spray
  • Disinfectant spray

All you need is:

  • An empty spray bottle
  • A few drops of tea tree oil
  • a couple of tablespoons rubbing alcohol
  • Enough water to fill the rest of the bottle

Pour the alcohol into the bottom of the bottle, and add tea tree oil. Shake, add water and shake again. Experiment with adding other essential oils for varied smells and uses. Lavender and eucalyptus are great choices, especially for use as a linen spray.

Cute spray bottles similar to the one I used. These are 1.99 at The Container Store, I found mine at the Dollar Tree.
