When you come from a big rowdy family, you look forward to the holidays with boy excitement and a healthy smattering of terror.
There are some strong opinions bred into our bones. Too bad they are so varied. Last year, I made “Tranquility Wipes” for wiping up spills. I threw some calming vetiver essential oil and a few prayers into the solution. It worked well.
This year I plan to use desserts and the scent of Christmas. It may not calm down my boisterous family but it will certainly make me feel great!

I plan to make this delicious strawberry cheesecake.
DIY Holiday Scented Kitchen Cleaning Spray
If you are anything like me, you’ll be spending your holiday gatherings in the kitchen. I don’t even leave the kitchen on Thanksgiving! So why not make it smell festive while you are cleaning up the cooking mess?
- Spray bottle
- 20 drops Spruce Essential oil
- 1/3 cup vodka (the cheap stuff)
- 1/3 cup distilled white vinegar
- 1/3 cup hot water
- Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth
Pour the vinegar into the spray bottle.
Add the alcohol.
Add the drops of oil.
Gently swirl around.
Add the hot water last.
Spray on spills and messes and wipe up with the Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth. This washable, sturdy cloth is textured and has scrubbing dots on one side! This new product is my new favorite kitchen helper.
There are scrubbing dots on one side and a smooth fiber texture on the other side. The dots on the one side of the dish cloth allow you to take on tough messes in the sink and across a variety of surfaces. I found them at Walmart in the sponge aisle.
They are perfect for kitchen spills.
Like the cottage cheese I spilled on the counter
And the cheesecake filling on the stove…
The Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloth takes cleaning to a whole new level so you can do even more, including tackling stuck on messes. Like the stuff on my oven door!
So while I eat my cheesecake, you should check out the other great recipes and tutorials here.
And if you want to eat some cheesecake too, grab my book and make one!
