Laugh if you must, I did. The truth is I have been using this DISINFECTANT, natural cleaner - for years.  Our open house shoppers often comment on how clean our listings are and how GREAT they smell.  Well, I am finally ready to dish on the secret.   It is VODKA.  Paul and Adele, if you are reading this, I am writing this in your honor.  This is how I sold those two units in your Gulf Beach condominium so fast; the buyers were “intoxicated” with the property.  


How to make good use of cheap vodkaand expensive vodka (to make all your cleaning chores a much happier experience).

First:  Start with Tito’s Handmade Vodka – pour over ice (two fingers) add tonic water and a splash of lime.  Stir and sip.  (this is for your for motivation).

Second:  Assemble the cheap vodka, white vinegar, essential oils of lavender and lemon into a 24 oz spray bottle.  Spray on any hard surface that needs disinfectant and let sit for up to 10 minutes. I recommend using a microfiber cloth to wipe

½ cup white vinegar

½ cup vodka

10 drops of lemon essential oil

10 drops lavender essential oil

1 ½ cups water
