Cleaning with a solution of equal parts white distilled vinegar and water is by far one of the most effective ways to clean, not to mention one of the safest for your health, your family’s, and yes, even the environment.
Add the power of herbs, and you have one super cleaning solution. In this case a natural and powerful anti-bacterial spray.

Sage Infused Vinegar
What you’ll need
- Bunch of fresh (not dry) sage
- 2 cups of white distilled vinegar
- Spray bottle
With your hands twist the sage, like wringing wet clothing, until very fragrant. Place in a glass container (I used a 16.9 0unce Fido jar–find it here) along with the 2 cups of white distilled vinegar and let it infused for a minimum of two weeks; I prefer to infuse for at least4 weeks.
Using a spray bottle, ad equal parts sage infused vinegar and water, spray any surface and wipe using a cloth rag.
Happy green cleaning!
