Just to be certain, should water be added to this ?

Do you have any suggestions on how to clean dog/cat drool off of fabric furniture?
I tired this and loved the scent of lavender and lemon combined.
However it is much too thick to be used in a spray bottle. I ended up pouring it on a cloth.
Really cleaned bathroom sinks well, but when used on granite countertops, it was a bit cumbersome. The more solid part of the mixture clumped and ended up in little piles.
Worth trying though and I will use it on sinks.
When I was looking for ingredients to make this in the Burlington store I thought it would have been a good idea to have a display with all the ingredients and recipe in one place. Would have saved me time and also would have promoted selling the idea and ingredients to more people.
