DIY Tea Tree Kitchen Grease Cutter

In a grease cutting mood today, because I just bought a simple-looking 150ml spray bottle.  The smaller bottle is handier, and I am hoping to make the chore of cutting kitchen grease looking/feeling more effortless.

… yup, anything that motivates me to clean.

I have been using vinegar as the main ingredient for a number of DIY household cleaning products; it’s cheap, effective, and toxic free.  First, dilute white vinegar with water.  The vinegar/water ratio will depend on the purpose of the diy cleaner, for kitchen grease, I use 1 part vinegar to 2 parts water.  Then, finish off with a favorite scent or two using essential oils.  Some essential oils have additional benefit of being antiseptic (note : different from anti-bacterial), though vinegar alone disinfects pretty well.  Finally, shake the mixture up a bit, and you are ready to go.


DIY TEA TREE KITCHEN GREASE CUTTER
ITEMS NEEDED :
- A Spray Bottle
- 1 Part White Vinegar
- 2 Parts Water
- 10 drops of Tea Tree Oil (for 150ml spray bottle)

INSTRUCTIONS :

01. Combine white vinegar and water in the spray bottle.
02. Add tea tree oil.
03. Close the spray bottle and shake to mix the ingredients well.


++ Notes to self ++
///

Shake the bottle for the content to mix well before using.
///
Spray on the surface to be cleaned, wait for a few seconds, before wiping off with a clean cloth.
///
Get translucent containers instead of clear ones as homemade cleaners tend to have a “foggy” or slight discoloration appearance depending on the ingredients used.  Reason is purely for aesthetic.  I prefer something that looks/feels clean to clean my house with.
