Perhaps you’re looking to give your house a little spring clean this Easter Monday?
While decluttering and tidying can feel rewarding, dusting is a job that seems to be never-ending.
But a woman has shared a way to make dusting more effective – simply by using the right cleaning spray.
Marlen Komar has revealed her grandma’s recipe for a homemade spray, which she says keeps dust away for longer.
Speaking on Apartment Therapy, she said: ‘I like to work smarter, not harder, when it comes to cleaning. That’s especially true when it comes to dusting.
‘No one wants to have their entire Saturday earmarked for cleaning the house, but it seems like the dust builds up without fail each week, leaving you to wipe down and dust the same shelves and cabinets in rotation.
‘But what if I told you that you could cut back on dusting if you used a cheap, homemade spray instead?’
She insists her homemade spray banishes dust for longer – and requires just four ingredients you probably already have in the house: vinegar, olive oil, a touch of soap and some water.
‘According to my Polish grandmother,’ she continues, ‘you don’t need a whole caddy of cleaning supplies to get your home into tip-top shape.
‘In my experience, you can cut your cleaning time in half using dust-repellant spray rather than just ordinary surface cleaner.’
Marlen explains the coating of the spray helps to propel more dust off surfaces and onto the floor – which means you’ll have to clean less, as a result.
If you fancy giving it a go, she explains you’ll need 2 cups of water, 1 cup of vinegar (to disinfect and cut through grime), 2 tablespoons of olive oil to polish and keep dust away for longer – and a touch of dish soap to thoroughly clean.
She adds: ‘Mix it all together and use it in place of your regular surface cleaner for best results.
‘My grandma would then pour this concoction into an old spray bottle and use it to wipe down everything from her credenzas to her coffee tables.
‘I find that I can get away with wiping my surfaces biweekly rather than weekly when using this regularly.’
