(image via: brandyfisher)Vinegar really is pretty amazing stuff. It’s cheap, powerful and one of the safest ways to get virtually everything in your house sparkling clean. Give it extra grease-cutting power with the addition of one simple, natural ingredient: orange peels. The next time you eat an orange, don’t throw the peel away! Place them in a jar, cover them with vinegar, put the lid on and let it sit for two weeks. Then strain it and add it to a spray bottle, and you’ve got pleasant orange-scented all-purpose cleaner.
[Recipe at Brandy Fisher]
Put orange peels in a jar, cover with white vinegar, put the lid on and set it aside for at least two weeks. Mine sat for 4 weeks and smelled amazing when I took the lid off!
Strain the vinegar, mix with an equal amount of water and add to a clean spray bottle.
