Origin: a Latin derivative
meaning "Gift of the Earth."
Dust accumulation is sometimes a total mystery! The amount of dust that can pop up around the house is crazy, and feather dusters and dry sheets can simply move the dust from one place to another. So, we like to do things a little differently. Dust wipes are a significant help because they trap the dust in the cloth and can even help cleanse home surfaces while they’re at it. Better yet, you can make reusable wipes at home that are easy, naturally sourced, and environmentally friendly!
Our version of DIY dust wipes uses Clementine and Lemon essential oils for their high limonene content, making them particularly helpful for cleansing surfaces. As citruses, they are also good for polishing wood furniture and removing thick or slightly greasy dust (think kitchen!). Plus, citruses just smell great. If you’re in the mood to give the mix an extra-boost of cleaning power, add a few drops of On Guard® and get busting that dust!
If cloths happen to dry out before you use them, dampen with water before use. To reuse, simply wash used cloths and re-apply ingredients!
