Orange and Vinegar All-Purpose Cleaner

I don’t know if you’ve noticed how expensive cleaners have gotten lately, but I have! You can actually make your own cleaners for a fourth of the price you would pay at the store. Vinegar has been used for many years for many things, and it is a very useful cleaner. By adding orange peels, you can get rid of most of the “vinegar” smell. You can add pretty much any kind of fruit peels for different scents, but orange peels are one of the strongest.

What you will need:

  • A large glass jug
  • Vinegar
  • Orange peels
  • Spray bottle

Step 1:

Pour enough vinegar into the glass jug so that it almost reaches the top. Cover it with a lid. Put your orange peels in the jar of vinegar. Over time, put as many peels as you can fit in the jar. Let the jar sit for a couple weeks to soak up the scent of the orange peels.

Step 2:

After a couple of weeks have passed, pour out the cleaner liquid into a bowl with a strainer on top. Squeeze out the cleaner liquid from the orange peels. Pour the liquid into the spray bottle.
