  • Final fragrance needs tweaking depending on sensibility to the vinegar scent
  • Cleaning finish can become matte for granite countertops


  • Natural products
  • Non-toxic
  • Affordable
  • Easy to prepare, using products from your own pantry

For this tutorial you'll need:

  • 1 cup of vinegar
  • 1 cup of water
  • 20 drops of essential oil
  • Measuring cup
  • Spray bottle (better if you can reuse an old one)



  1. Make sure you rinse properly whatever container you use - you don't want product contamination!
  2. Carefully measure 1 cup of vinegar and water - mix them inside the spray bottle.
  3. Add 20 drops of your preferred essential oil (I used Sweet Orange, from Aura Cacia, purchased at my local Vitamin Shoppe).
  4. Close lid and shake.
  5. It's now ready to use!
