I am going to try this with some soon-to-go-bad oranges! I love homemade cleaners! They are a great way to save money!
I found this cleaner recipe on Pinterest. You fill a quart jar with orange peels, then pour white vinegar in, seal & let sit for 10 days. I used a pint jar because that’s all I had.
The original pinner says it smells great. The first time I used mine, it smelled more like vinegar than oranges. Today, 4 days after, it smells a bit more orangey. Still, the dominant smell is vinegar. But I’m used to cleaning with vinegar, so it doesn’t bother me. I’m hoping the orangey smell will continue to develop.
It cleans really well, though! As well or better than any store bought natural cleaners I’ve used. I’ve got another jar of orange peels & vinegar steeping 🙂
