Organic Bug Spray from Leftovers!

If I can choose natural over chemical, I always do. Most of my cleaning products I make myself with vinegar. Also, vodka is great for the bathroom! Buy the cheap stuff and put it in a spray bottle to take care of mold. Of course, keep it away from children, as you would any chemical!

This morning I saw a recipe for Organic Bug Spray made from scraps and wanted to share it. You can get lots more recipes here: http://ybertaud9.wordpress.com/2012/01/15/extensive-list-of-organic-pest-control-remedies/

Let me know if you try this, or have some natural recipes to share. Here's the recipe:

 

ORGANIC BUG SPRAY FROM ONION SCRAPS

You can make your own organic bug spray from kitchen leftovers! Simply save your onion skins, peels and ends then refrigerate in an empty margarine-sized tub or ziplock bag until the container is full. Once you have enough, place the onion pieces in a pail and fill with warm water. Soak for a few days, up to a week. You can keep this on the patio in the sun to steep but this is optional. After one week, strain the onion bits out and store the onion water in spray bottles.

Bury the onion bits around plants that are prone to aphids, spiders and other pests. Just spray both house and garden plants with the water to fight aphids and pests. You can also mix your garlic trimmings in with the onion pieces, bugs hate garlic too!
