  1. I’ll bet that smells great! Your sister is so lucky to have your hands on expertise! :-)

    • Crunchy Betty

      Maybe if people emailed my sister and told her how lucky she is, she’d believe it!

      Actually, she might start doing some stuff for me for Crunchy Kids (since she’s the one with two little ones), so I’d better say really nice things about her right now!

      She has good hair. (There.)

      • I was wondering if you have any idea’s for the smell in diaper pail’s.. Yes i did say diaper pail’s…We love those cloth diaper’s.. And they do go along way….

        • Crunchy Betty

          Good for you for sticking with the cloth diapers! My sister tried that, and couldn’t make it stick. (My guess is she just hates laundry … heh.)

          Anyway, I would sprinkle some baking soda in with them a time or two, but probably the best thing you could do is get some tea tree oil and drip a few drops onto a cloth and then toss it in the pail. I do that for the hamper, and it really helps.

          Hope it works!

          The diaper pail shouldn’t stink if you replace your lid with a towel/baby blanket/any cloth.  I know it’s a weird idea, but we’ve been doing it for several months and it’s amazing.

  2. Hi Leslie,

    You have an awesome ideas on DIY recipes!

    I’m a fellow blogger, found you through #31DBBB challenge. How can I get in tough with you, can you give me your email?

    Keep up the good work,

    • Crunchy Betty

      Hi, Victoria! I actually just swung by your place yesterday and loved it! There’s a couple of email addresses to get a hold of me ([email protected] is probably the best).

      If I don’t hear from you soon, I’ll get in touch with you when I get home (on Sunday).

    YAY!! Very cool!! Now for your own line of crunchy products…

  4. I’ve done the neat vinegar and I agree. It works well but my bathroom smells like a fish and chips take away afterwards. I
    Love peppermint oil. It’s really good for nausea. A happy smell. A clean shower. I’m going to try this one…!

    • Crunchy Betty

      I often get nauseous while I’m in the shower (has something to do with sagging where I never used to). So there you go: Double whammy with this one. Mwah!

  5. Perfect! Just what I’ve been needing… I love the “spray it on and walk away” type of cleaning and this has no chemicals, hooray! (And I think I’d better buy spray bottles by the case now thanks to all your concoctions!)…

    • Crunchy Betty

      I do have to admit, the one thing I was worried about was the leaching of oils because of the plastic. Go glass if you can. Otherwise, it’s really just cleaning spray, so I guess it doesn’t matter as much if you lose a little bit of the oil in the plastic.

      See if you can’t find a BPA free bottle, though. Not sure how hard those are to find …

  6. Your site is awesome….so many great ideas. I’ve bookmarked it and going to go snoop around a little more! Can’t wait to try out your shower spray! :):)

    • Crunchy Betty

      Yay! Can’t wait to see you here more.

      Don’t forget to put food on your face, and take pictures!

  7. Oh I am SO GLAD I FOUND YOU! tee hee. Beginner blogger here and lagging behind in the 31 Days to a Better Blog challenge. This place is wonderful… adding you to my list. Off to emulate your awesome style… oh, and make a batch of this cleaner too. YAHOOOOOOO!

  8. Loooove this recipe and as soon as I get more castille soap, I will be doing this. I also don’t like the funkiness of vinegar even though it’s a great natural cleaner (I clean everything with it, though I usually add some lemon essential oil.)

    My shower can really use some freshening too. Again, thankful I found your blog. I also love the name…why is the word “crunchy” so awesome??

    I also shared this on my Facebook page!

  9. I have been looking for an easy homemade shower spray, this is perfect! Thanks.. can’t wait to throw this recipe together this weekend – Thanks!

    I love this spray! It seems to help keep the shower clean between the regular cleanings. Plus – it makes a great bathroom air freshener. I also sprayed a little into a pair of stinky shoes and it killed the odor.

    Here is my recipie (very similar to yours) that I have been using for a few years. I just may go look for some peppermint extract to put in it:

    1/2 c rubbing alcohol
    1/2 c hydrogen peroxide
    6 drops of liquid dish soap
    2 tsp of Jet Dry 
    water to fill the bottle

  12. Karpawalsh

     I love the smell of mint so it is a nice refreshing scent to start the day with. Although  hydrogen peroxide degrades quickly when
    exposed to light I think that the bottle should be a light block bottle. And I found that the smell of the alcohol was to strong for me so I think that my next bottle I make might use vodka. You can also use this recipe to spray toothbrushes and the toilet to kill those yucking germs. …thanks so much

  13. Lesley

    I’ll have to try this! Thanks!

    Would this be as effective without the EO? Just wondering if you added that solely for your sister’s scent sensitivity, or if it really makes a significant difference to the cleaning power. Thanks!

  15. GreenBreen

    Would this likely work with vinegar in place of peroxide? I know you aren’t supposed to combine the two, and I use vinegar for so many other things already.
