Vanilla-Inspired DIY Cleaners

We’re in that time frame where it’s still winter but Valentine’s Day is around the corner and so is spring. If you already DIY your cleaners, let’s create a warm vanilla-y scent for this season. Every spray and scrub will give your home that cozy vanilla vibe while you safely clean your home. Everything seen here can be purchased in my shop – keep reading for the links.

I have 4 simple vanilla scent combinations to share with you – you can choose one scent, try them all or come up with your own signature vanilla scent.
