How To Make A Cheap, All-Natural Dusting Spray

For some reason I have had a lot of requests for a homemade dusting spray lately. I think I have been dragging my feet on it because on the big list of household chores, this is probably one of my least favorite…if not my very least favorite! It’s not even that hard to do, I just have such an aversion to it. Go figure. 

While a microfiber cloth all by itself usually will take care of the dust in my house, there are occasions when a dusting spray is called for. Like when there are streaks of grease or dirt mixed in with the dust. Plus, I just really love the nice citrus smell. :-)

DIY Citrus Dusting Spray


  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup vinegar (cuts through grease and grime & disinfectants)
  • 2 tsp olive oil (shines and protects wood)
  • 10-15 drops of Lemon essential oil* (makes your home smell naturally fresh and clean!)
  • Spray bottle

*Grapefruit, sweet orange (which is full of benefits,) tangerine, or bergamot essential oil work well too!

Combine all ingredients in spray bottle and shake well to mix.

Because oil and water don’t mix, be sure to shake before each use to help distribute all the ingredients.

Spray directly on furniture and buff it off with a clean, dry cloth.

Now maybe dusting will be a little less drudgery for me….and you!
