Light and Lemony Dusting Cloth – DIY Diva

dustingTraditionally, food grade lemon oil has been used for dusting furniture because it is so lubricating and antispectic. I’ve included it in this excellent, natural, dust-removal formula.

You can also add the aromatherapy benefits of pure essential oil of lemon balm to the formula, as it is know to be antiviral, refreshing, uplifting, heart opening, and a cleanser and detoxifier.

Light and Lemony Dusting Cloth
1/2 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
a few drops of pure, food grade lemon oil (as opposed to an essential oil; for aromatherapy, see below)
a few drops of olive oil
a soft cotton rag

Combine the oils, dip a soft, recycled cotton cloth into the oil, and use it for dusting.

Make Your Own Aromatherapy Variation
1/2 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
10 drops pure essential oil of lemon
a few drops of jojoba or olive oil
soft cotton rag

Use as above.
