Fill a jar about one-quarter full with blue/grey lavender buds and then fill the rest of the jar with white vinegar. Place the lid on the jar and leave in a warm spot (a windowsill is a good place) for about two weeks. Shake daily. Strain out the lavender buds (you can put these in the compost pile) Use your new cleaner to clean kitchen counters (repels and also kills ants), windows, etc. It is also good to spray into the air around the grill to repel flies, but take be careful not to get downwind of it because the vinegar base may sting your eyes.
