Make your own orange peel oil cleaner

We try to make as many of our own household cleaners as we can. This one is easy to make and can be used for all sorts of cleaning jobs. Not only is it great at removing grease but has the added advantage of leaving behind a lovely scent. By making your own cleaners not only will you save money but you will cut down your exposure to chemicals.

All you need to make this cleaner is orange peel and white vinegar. Keep your orange peels in a jar until the jar is full and then fill the jar with white vinegar. Seal the jar and allow the mixture to sit for 2-3 weeks in a cool dark place Once a week give the jar a few hard shakes to thoroughly mix the contents.

After 2-3 weeks, filter out the liquid into a clean jar. You can now use your cleaner by filling a spray bottle to about 25%-50% (depending on the strength required) and then filling with water. Use with a rag to clean mirrors, wooden furniture, worktops, sinks and windows.
