Gather the materials

To make a homemade spray bottle, you’ll need a few basic materials that are likely already lying around your house. Gather the following items:

  • An empty plastic bottle with a spray nozzle
  • A small funnel
  • Water
  • White vinegar or rubbing alcohol
  • Optional: Essential oils for fragrance

Prepare the bottle

Before you start making your homemade spray bottle, make sure the plastic bottle is clean and dry. If it previously contained any chemicals or substances that might react with the ingredients you’re planning to use, it’s best to find a different bottle to repurpose.

Mix the ingredients

Once you have prepared the bottle, it’s time to mix the ingredients for your homemade spray. Fill the small funnel with your chosen liquid, whether it’s water, white vinegar, or rubbing alcohol. Slowly pour it into the empty plastic bottle, making sure not to overflow.

If you want to add fragrance to your spray bottle, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the mixture. This step is optional and can be skipped if you prefer an unscented spray.

Secure the spray nozzle

After you have added the mixture to the plastic bottle, it is important to securely attach the spray nozzle. Screw it tightly onto the bottle to prevent any leakage while you are using the spray. Double-check that it is firmly attached, as a loose nozzle can result in messy and ineffective spraying.

Test and use your homemade spray bottle

Now that you have made your homemade spray bottle, it’s time to test it out and put it to use. Before using it on any surfaces, give the bottle a few pumps to ensure the liquid is being sprayed effectively.

Once you have tested it, you can use your homemade spray bottle for a variety of purposes. Whether you need it for cleaning, gardening, or any other household task, you now have a versatile and eco-friendly alternative to store-bought spray bottles.
