Homemade all-purpose cleaner is a must have in my home. I really enjoy making my own homemade household cleaners. I use vinegar and water for my homemade everyday household cleaner. I decided to freshen up my basic homemade cleaner by infusing it with citrus.
I live in the Sunshine State so fresh citrus is always present in my kitchen, I was able to whip up my first batch in the same day. I am now making my second batch so it is certainly ‘share’ worthy. It works great and smells fabulous!
All you need to make this fresh smelling homemade all-purpose cleaner is orange (or any citrus) peels and white vinegar. Simply fill a jar with orange peels then cover with vinegar and fill to the top.
Allow your vinegar mixture to sit for 2 weeks. The orange filled jar actually looks nice on the counter. Once your vinegar sits for 2 weeks you are ready to make your all-purpose cleaner. The vinegar-water ratio that I use is 1 part orange infused vinegar to 3 parts water. My mama saves her empty plastic spray bottles for me to use for my homemade house cleaning creations! You now have homemade orange infused all-purpose cleaner, clean to your heart’s delight and enjoy the fresh citrus smell!
I have found that infusing the vinegar with citrus prior to creating homemade all-purpose cleaner really helps to cut grease. Apparently, my son likes the smell of the citrus better than the vinegar, he claims our kitchen no longer smells of Easter eggs. I will continue to make and use orange infused all-purpose cleaner!
