Homemade cleaning products for dusting

Wanting to use something reusable and washable. Why not SOCKS! Your house probably has so many socks that seem to have lost their matches.

Homemade Cleaning Products for Dusting Ingredients

old socks (old wash cloths or other cotton fabric scraps would work fine too)

1 cup white vinegar

1 cup water 10 drops lime essential oil (find pure lime EO here)

15 drops lemon essential oil (find pure lemon EO here)

15 drops orange essential oil (find pure sweet orange EO here)

large mason jar with lid


Combine vinegar, water, and essential oils in a bowl. Set aside. Place socks in mason jar (as many as will fit). I rolled some of my socks and others I just stuffed in. Pour dust solution into mason jar until full. Cap the mason jar and allow the socks to fully absorb the liquid (overnight worked best for me). Use the dust cloths one by one. You can slip them over an existing duster or simply use your hands. Dust cloths will stay fresh for approximately 1 week in a tightly sealed container. Store in the refrigerator for optimal freshness. After 1 week, wash any remaining wipes with your regular laundry.
