Why make your own dusting spray?
Pledge works, right?
Well, yea it does but it also contains Isoparaffin, Dimethicone, Octylphosphonic Acid, Nitrogen, Polysorbate 80, Sorbitan Oleate, Polydimethylsiloxane, Aminomethyl Propanol, Fragrance from SC Johnson Fragrance Palette, Proprietary Thickening Agent, Methylisothiazolinone. These ingredients range from mild skin irritants to possible carcinogens. No thanks. Not round my babies!

More than likely you have everything you need already to whip up a batch of dusting spray. Its just as effective and has no harmful ingredients. Also, it cost less than 50 cents to make!!


Vinegar is a powerful disinfectant. It has been shown to kill E.Coli, Salmonella, and Staphylococcus.

Olive Oil helps prevent dust from settling. Also great for moisturizing wood.

Tea Tree and Lemon are both great antibacterials. I love the lemon smell but you can use any antibacterial essential oils you wish: lemongrass, orange, lavender, peppermint, etc.
