vinegar– I get my white vinegar for cleaning at Costco.  They have giant bottles of it for just a few dollars.

8 oz or larger spray bottle– choose a spray bottle that’s safe to use with essential oils (glass, HDPE plastic, or PET plastic).  Amber bottles will help preserve the efficacy of the essential oils or you can use a clear bottle and store it in a dark cabinet (out of sunlight which can degrade the essential oils).  click here for a great glass spray bottle I use and click here for the plastic spray bottle in my photo
