A new Trend?
Over at the Down To Earth Forum there is a lot of this going on.
3/4 fill a jar with vinegar,
and add citrus peel.
Leave to brew for 2 - 3 weeks,
clean until your hearts content!
What you get is a vinegar cleaner with a lovely citrus smell...
This is my citrus brewing in the laundry window,
(please excuse the dirty window).
I have bottled orange, mandarine, grapefruit and lemon peel.
And put back into bottles when done.
I add some to a squirty bottle and top up with water or vinegar.
I had saved the recipe for doing this a while back from Penniless Parenting, but never tried it until nellymary over at Just like my Nan made posted about it.
Turns out that this is a really good cleaner, I have used it all over my house with great success.
It is very good when used on stainless steel and bathroom tiles, leaves them lovely and shiny.
If you have some citrus fruit, why not give it a try...
