VODKA: Vodka a fantastic natural disinfectant on food surfaces like cutting boards and on fabrics like upholstery and curtains. Vodka naturally deodorizes fabrics and carpets, so it’s the cleaner of choice as a DIY Fabric Refresher without the harsh chemicals. It is flammable so take caution when using but it’s great as an all-around disinfectant.
How to use plain VODKA to disinfect: Put a spray nozzle on the bottle and spray direct on surfaces or dilute 1:1 in a spray bottle. (NOTE: You can reduce the amount of water and use more vodka as needed ~ especially to spray the air, like an air freshener. Vodka dissipates faster than water so this is ideal when spray walls or other surfaces you don’t want to get too wet.)
LEMON peels: Lemon peels have antibacterial properties due to the essential oils in the rinds. It’s like when you squeeze a lemon you’ll see the oil on the rind. That’s the lemon essential oil. The oil itself is a powerful antibacterial that has even been shown to kill Staphylococcus aureus and E. coli. Lemon juice is a great sanitizer and kills some germs but it’s the lemon oil that’s more effective
How to MAKE LEMON VODKA DISINFECTANT:
Fill a Mason jar with lemon peels and then fill to the top with vodka. Put on the lid and screw tightly shut. Let sit for 1-2 weeks.
Drain lemon peels and put it down the sink. Turn on the garbage disposal – it will help to naturally sanitize it. Keep the leftover vodka.
In a glass spray bottle, fill 1/2 with the lemon-infused vodka and 1/2 with water. Put the nozzle on the bottle and screw it on tightly.
