How-to: 

Simply combine 1 cup of vinegar, 1 and 1/2 cups of water, 30 drops of wild orange essential oil, and 10 drops of tea tree oil in a spray bottle. Shake well before each use. 

RL Tip: If you aren't a fan of the scent of tea tree oil, you can replace it with mint. It smells slightly sweeter but it still has the same antibacterial properties.
