You Can Never Have Too Many Kitchen Spray Bottles

 

The kitchen is one of those areas of the home that probably gets cleaned the most, as it should if you’re almost always eating in it! Keeping a kitchen clean is an integral part of a healthy home. Unfortunately, cleaning companies do not make it very easy to distinguish between their products, particularly from an online platform.

Buying kitchen sprays on eBay is easy – it’s basically your one-stop shop and once you’ve bought something you enjoy using you can stock up. And the good news is that there are plenty of options available.

About kitchen spray bottles

Spray bottles can be used for more than just holding water. Chemical or organic cleansers, fragrances, colognes, air fresheners, hairspray, pepper spray, and even salad dressings can all be applied with them. You may control how much fluid is dispensed from spray bottles by how long they are held under pressure. This makes it easy to monitor their contents and reduces waste. To avoid leaks, use a threaded waterproof neck with a liquid-saving safety lock and a tight-fitting loop nozzle.

Spray bottles for the kitchen can be handy, for example:

  • Cleaning: A spray bottle filled with a solution of one part vinegar to three parts water is all you need for cleaning.
  • Cooking: Fill the spray bottle halfway with olive oil and use that to coat your cookie sheets and pans.
  • Eating: Fill the bottle halfway with your preferred sauce (lemon juice, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar) and use it to flavour your favourite foods.
  • Air freshener: Combine water and a few drops of your favourite essential oil and spritz liberally throughout your kitchen.
  • Glass cleaner: combine 14 cup rubbing alcohol, 14 cup distilled white vinegar, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 2 cups warm water, and 10-15 essential oil drops in a spray bottle and spray directly into the glass surface.
  • Cleaning wood benches: In a container, add 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar, and 2 cups warm water. Using your spray bottle, mist the mixture onto varnished wood and wipe clean with a soft cloth.

Some tips for buying kitchen spray bottles online

If you’re just looking for a simple cleaner, then these tend to be more affordable than your self-proclaimed ‘do-it-all’ cleaners. Though, it all depends on what you want. There are certain types of cleaners that are sold in individual units, rather than the bargain-busting group packs. These cleaners that are usually ‘safer’ for the environment, from the smaller companies who promote their lack of scent, lack of harmful chemicals. They tend to be sold in individual units, as they are more difficult and costly to produce en masse. If you’re committed to a scent-free home or a more environmentally-friendly product, consider that you may find yourself buying more cleaner over time.

In general, kitchen sprays tend to be the sort of thing that will sit around in your cupboard and last months, as very few people are cleaning their kitchens every day. However, it may be helpful to have different types of cleaner around for different surfaces. For example, certain cleaners are great for glassware, whereas oven cleaners are specific to, well, ovens, with a higher concentration of acidic components to help eat through baked-on grime and food faster.

Ultimately, you need to consider just how much cleaner you’re going to need. It’s almost always better to buy in bulk. If you buy a vast array of kitchen cleaning products, consider using a spray bottle for each one. Plastic is usually a go-to when it comes to kitchen spray bottles - but you may want to consider the harmful effects that single-use plastics have on the environment. You may be more inclined to something made of glass, or other material. You’re likely going to have to buy the plastic bottle initially and then decant your cleaning solution into something else.

Some kitchen spray bottles have on and off switches, which closes the nozzle end of the bottle and locks the handle. These are handy if you have young, inquisitive children, or find yourself travelling with your cleaning supplies a lot, as it will help to prevent spillages. Look for these options when buying online.
