    Post Room Spray- Cloud

    Hi Everyone.
    Any suggestion for how to remove cloudiness from the room spray mix.

    I used Frangrance oil, Ethanol, and Dis. water

    I try using 5 micron filter bag and so far not a that great result.

    Thank you for your help in advance.

    Even though this is a question about a room spray, perhaps the people in the DIY Forum might be able to shed a bit more targeted info.

    The cloudiness of your product is because the emulsion between water and your oil is too weak,which leads to big cluster of oil within the product which make it cloudy.
    either you should switch to a surfactant like polysorbate 20 or PEG-40 hydrogenated castor oil but your product might ending up being slightly sticky .
    or you need to increase the ethanol percentage to solubilize the oil .
    Could you communicate the quantity of each material used?in grams or percentage?and also what oil are you trying to solubilize ?
