During the Christmas season we had a lot of oranges given to us as gifts, and we also happened to buy a bunch of them, since that seems to be the time that oranges are so dang cheap!
If you eat a lot of oranges, you can save the peels and make a nice, easy, homemade cleaner for your home. Eco-friendly and affordable. (I’ve posted about this before, but wanted to share again.)
Put the peels in a quart-sized canning jar. Pack them in until the jar is nice and full. It took me a few days.
Once you’ve got the jar nice and packed full of orange peels, pour some white vinegar over them. Fill the jar completely.
Once you’ve done that, you’ve just got to wait! Put a lid on the jar, let it sit for 7-10 days, and then you’ll strain the mixture. Put the strained liquid in a spray bottle and fill the remaining of it with water. You’ve got a citrus-scented cleaner that will disinfect, deodorize, and clean!!:-)
