Orange Peel Vinegar Cleaner is so easy to make, and costs pennies. Don't spend money on toxic cleaners when you can make your own "green" stuff at home. There is no better feeling than turning your trash to treasure.
Step 1: Supplies
- Orange peels (or any other citrus fruits)
- White Vinegar
- Jar with lid
- spray bottle
Step 2: Eat Up
First thing to do is eat your orange and discard the peel into a jar. During the winter I always am stocked with clementines. I keep a jar on the counter to dispose of the peels. Everyone is expected to leave a deposit if they partake of the fruit.
I don't bother removing the pith...
Step 3: Pack and Fill
Pack the peels in quite tight. The more peel the stronger the citrus scent. Once the jar has been filled, grab the white vinegar and fill to the top. Twist the lid on tight and let sit for at least two weeks. I tend to have 8-10 jars macerating at a time. Ten large jars is enough to take care of my cleaning needs for the year. I like to leave my jars for several months before using.
Step 4: Pour Off
After waiting, you simply poor off the liquid into a spray bottle.
Step 5: Now Get Cleaning!
Clean baby clean.
