Below is a video showing you how to make your own dust cloths.
These can be used in place of purchasing disposable treated dusting cloths to save you money.
You will need the following ingredients:
2 cups hot water
1 cup lemon oil
Cotton cloths or old cotton t-shirts
Combine the hot water and lemon oil in a bowl.
Please note that the video says "1 cup lemon essential oil" but if you were using a pure essential oil that mixture would be way too strong.
What you want is a lemon oil, which has some lemon essential oil within it but is diluted in a carrier oil.
Then, dip the cotton cloths in the lemon oil and water mixture and wring out thoroughly.
Then, let the rags dry out thoroughly.
Once they are dry they are ready to use.
You will be able to make quite a number of these treated dust cloths with this amount of solution, so you either need a place to store all of them, or make less of the mixture to begin with.
You can store unused dust cloths in a resealable container to keep until you are ready to use them.
You can reuse these cloths too, by just washing like normal (I suggest hot water and extra detergent for washing) and then just soak in more mixture and repeat the process to make your own dust cloths again.
