We are facing unprecedented times during this COVID-19 season, people in the community have lost their job, or have had a significant wage cut. We at SERVPRO East Honolulu are thinking of you, and have you in our hearts. Here is a simple recipe for a spray that can be used as a general disinfectant:
you're going to need:
- a spray bottle, cleaned
-1/2 cup of white vinegar
-1/2 cup of 70% Rubbing Alcohol
-1 cup of distilled water
- 5 drops of citrus/orange essential oil (optional)
To make this spray it is simple and effective, you mix all the ingredients besides the essential oil into the spray bottle. After this is thoroughly mixed, which can be done by vigorously shaking the bottle, add in the essential oil for smell.
You can use orange peels as well this also creates a lovely aroma if you don't have access to an orange essential oil.
And don't be afraid to experiment! Not everyone likes the smell of oranges, and that is OK; one can use also the same of amount of eucalyptus, lavender, mint, or any other essential oil lying around. The most important ingredient is the 70% rubbing alcohol, that concentration will kill most bacteria and keep you and your ohana safe.
This is an easy way to clean your household on a tighter budget, the orange also creates a lovely smell perfect for any nose!
