Scented Vinegar for Cleaning

I know what you must be thinking, “vinegar, really? But doesn’t it stink?” Vinegar alone as a distinct, tangy smell that may not sound as appealing as some of your other scented products. So today, I am going to help you with that by showing you how to infuse vinegar with fresh rosemary! The natural plant extracts not only scent your vinegar, but it also helps when cleaning and disinfecting.

This infused vinegar recipe is more or less a concentrate. When the vinegar is done infusing, simply dilute the mixture when you add it to a spray bottle. The best part, for a few CENTS (yes, cents not dollars) you will have a surface spray to use all over your home.

I encourage you to invest in glass spray bottles to put your cleaner in. Glass spray bottles can be used again and again in your home to clean. I have several glass spray bottles with various cleaners or solutions in them for the house. I keep a bottle of each upstairs and downstairs, as well. You can choose from amber (brown) color or clear color (these are the bottles pictured).

Cleaning Solution
  1. Put approximately 2 cups of rosemary inside the mason jar. Fill the jar with vinegar, leaving about an inch from the top. Make sure all of your rosemary is submerged.
  2. Put the lid on the jar and store in a cool, dark space. The pantry works well for this. Every day, shake the jar gently. Let your vinegar sit for 5-7 days to infuse.
  3. After 5-7 days, remove the jar. Using a fine mesh strainer, strain the liquid in to glass bowl. You can strain the liquid a couple times to catch any small pieces. Discard the rosemary stems.
  4. Pour the remaining liquid in a jar to keep to make cleaning spray.
To make cleaning spray
  1. Add 1/4 - 1/2 cup of rosemary solution to a glass spray bottle. Fill the remainder of the bottle with filtered water. You can add additional scents using essential oils, if you would like. Add 5-10 drops of essential oils to the bottle. Put on the sprayer lid and shake. **DO NOT USE SOLUTION ON GRANITE.**
  2. I love to use this solution to clean my mirrors and windows!
