DIY glass spray bottle

Have you heard that when using citrus essential oils in any recipe (like Bug Off - Extra Tough) that you need to use a glass spray bottle instead of plastic? It's true. Citrus essential oils leach chemicals out of plastic! If you already knew this you may have gone searching on Amazon or your local store for a glass spray bottle only to find that they are kinda crazy expensive! Stop the madness and make your own DIY glass spray bottle with what you have in the house. How To Make a DIY Glass Spray BottleClean any glass bottle that originally contained a natural ingredient (white vinegar, Bragg's vinegar, Perrier) with a narrow screw top opening and clean and dry it thoroughly. KEEP CAP! Fit with a clean and dry plastic spray trigger. The bottles above fit spray triggers I had in the house from other cleaners/projects.

Remove the original label with a little bit of Lemon Essential Oil (Young ...
