Making your own glass spray bottle with up-cycled materials is so easy! And a great option to store your DIY cleaning recipes with essential oils.
So if you’re here right now…
I’m going to assume you’re a crunchy little modern hippie like myself.
You wear natural beauty and skincare products, prefer glass over plastic, and make a lot of your own homemade cleaning products.
Welcome, my sister!
You’re in the right place 🙂
Glass spray bottles are definitely the best option for storing your natural homemade cleaning products.
Because one of the dangers of plastic is its ability to leach chemicals into whatever it is that it’s containing.
Plus, we know that essential oils (even when properly diluted) can eat away at plastic. Since so many natural homemade cleaning recipes call for essential oils, this is another big reason to go glass.
Now I looked around, and a large glass spray-bottle is a tough find!
(Sure you can find a lot of 1 and 2 ounce bottles, but these are best for natural skincare DIYs rather than for cleaning products — just too small.)
That is until you look in your pantry…
All you need to make your own glass spray bottle is:
- The spray nozzle and tubing from an old cleaning product
- A glass bottle with a grooved mouth (as is typical of bottles that come with a screw-on plastic lid)
Yes, it’s really as simple as that!
Many waters, vinegars, and juices sold in glass bottle have a screw-on plastic lid have the same sized mouth and groves as plastic spray bottles. So you can simply transplant your typical plastic spray-bottle nozzle onto your glass bottle and voilà! Instant glass spray bottle for all of your natural DIY needs!
