Need Some Help With My Vanity

Now, please don't judge me about my vanity, I am a woman and it is important to look the best I can.  But I am actually talking about my bathroom vanity counter today!  Partly....

During my morning make up routine, the last step is a liberal mist of hair spray, you know, to seal the hair for the day!  The problem is that 'liberal mist' gets all over. My sweet husband is a perfectionist and I'm sure he could come up with a way to eliminate the problem.  But I am a 'get it done quick' type and just want to spray and get on with the day.

But my poor bathroom counters get all gunked up with that residue.  Wet wiping them makes it worse and who has time to pull the heavy duty bathroom cleaner out on the spur of a moment?

So, I found this little recipe, very cost effective and gave it a try! 

Mix in a spray bottle....
2 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup rubbing alcohol
a few drops of dishwashing detergent
if desired, 15 drops of essential oil...( I did desire to and never follow a recipe completely, so I added 20 drops of lavender and 15 drops of rosemary oils)

Just quickly spray and wipe and it took all the residue away, leaving sparkly and squeaky clean counters!!  Finally, some help with that vanity problem!!
