When I was growing up in the 60's my mom had always believed in home made concoctions for everything from cleaning cabinets to home made hair conditioners.
The most memorable was her fresh smelling lemon spray which was used every year for her spring cleaning. April was the cleaning month. She would spray it on base boards, mattress, box springs, closets, shelving, out door furniture and every nook and cranny. Our home smelled like fresh lemons.
When we had guests, the night before she would go through the house quickly and spray everything. She would keep a small spray bottle in our rooms and ask us to spray our rooms each week. Not only did it clean, it was a great freshener, everything smelled so clean and fresh.
I have passed on this fabulous recipe to you all. I hope you find this recipe helpful.
Find a pretty spay bottle. You can purchase one at your local department store. Fill the bottle half way with distilled water. Add 3 to 4 drops of lemon oil. Add one whole lemon to this ingredient. Low and behold you have yourself the best smelling air freshener/cleaner.
