3 Easy DIY Cleaning Spray Recipes

Many of us are trying to reduce our single plastic use, but what do you do with those bottles you’ve already got? You could chuck them in the recycling bin, but we’ve got a better idea. Our cleaning spray recipe is simple to make, comes in 3 incredible scents, and is the perfect way to make use of your old spray bottles.

We’ve used Method spray bottles as they are our go-to cleaning products. If you don’t have time to make our sprays, Method products are a great green-thinking alternative that clean amazingly and smell incredible, made largely from plant-derived ingredients instead of being packed with nasty chemicals. Once you’ve finished using your Method spray bottle, it’s the perfect candidate to get a new life as a scent-sational homemade cleaner.

First, take a pair of scissors and snip off the wrap-around label. You’re going to want to see how pretty this recipe looks in the bottle! It’s a good idea to remove the spray mechanism and give the bottle and spray head a clean before refilling.

Lemon & Rosemary

  • Slice 1/2 a lemon and 1/2 a lime and add them to the empty bottle.
  • Add 3 springs of rosemary.
  • Top up with a 50/50 mix of distilled water and white vinegar.
  • Replace the lid tightly, add a label, and shake vigorously.

Grapefruit

  • Peel a grapefruit, and add the peel to the empty bottle.
  • Add equal parts of distilled water and white vinegar.
  • Replace the lid tightly, add a label, and shake vigorously.

Lavender

  • Add lavender heads to an empty spray bottle.
  • Add equal parts of distilled water and white vinegar.
  • Use a few drops of lavender essential oil to add extra fragrance.
  • Replace the lid tightly, add a label, and shake vigorously.

Top tip: To make sure those gorgeous scents have maximum impact, allow them to infuse for up to 3 weeks.

They’re quick, they’re easy and they’re as natural as they come – but if your funnel is on the fritz or you’ve just recycled your last spray bottle, give our Method cleaning products a go.
