¼ tsp liquid dish soap
¼ cup vinegar
2 cups water
Mix in a spray bottle.
Shirley’s grand daughters don't like the smell of vinegar and she doesn’t either, so she made my own lavender vinegar. Lavender makes it smell fresh and hardly vinegar-y at all. She got the instructions from the Young Living Farms web site.
Lavender Vinegar Recipe
10-17 lavender sprigs
1 pint white vinegar (boil for 2-5 minutes)
Cut lavender sprigs to fit inside a glass bottle or jar. (Sterilize jar if using lavender vinegar for cooking.) Rinse flowers in cold water to remove dirt. Put lavender (flowers down, stems up) into jar and pour vinegar to the top of the bottle. Seal and let sit for 2-6 weeks before using. (Shirley let it sit 2 days)
Cooking (marinade for meats, dressing for salads, dipping oil for breads)
Cleaning (disinfecting floors, walls, mirrors)
Cosmetic (hair rinse, facial blemishes)
It costs practically nothing to make a year’s supply of window cleaner. Shirley got a bunch of lavender at Tai Pan, but it’s not necessary…just fun.
