thanks, yet again, to Pinterest… who led me to the blog Jam Hands…..I discovered a simple recipe for homemade, non-toxic, green household cleaning solution.
Its SUPER easy to make and it smells…. clean (without the harsh chemical fumes that commercial cleaners have). And, if you’re like me, you have all of the ingredients sitting around your house already:
DIY Citrus Vinegar Cleaning Solution
Makes one quart
water (used later, see below)
1. If you’d like, juice the lemons and oranges first and save the juice for other uses. Using a spoon, scrape out the fleshy parts, leaving just the outer skin and the white pith.
2. Add to a quart size jar. Fill with vinegar and cap the jar. Let sit for about 2 weeks, then strain out the peels. Rinse out the canning jar. Add the strained liquid back to the jar & cap. This is the concentrated cleaning solution.
3. To prepare for use you will need a clean spray bottle (size of your choosing) and a funnel. Fill the spray bottle 3/4 of the way up with water. Using the funnel, pour in the citrus vinegar mix into the spray bottle. Shake to combine. Store this solution in the fridge.
