You can just take the peels from fruits that have already been eaten but we had a bowl of blood oranges that were going bad so we used that. Citrus fruits can include: oranges, lemons, grapefruits ect
Any type of vinegar will work.
Make sure the size of your jar is sufficient to the amount of vinegar and peels you will use.
Cut your fruit. If you are using the peels from already eaten fruit skip to step 7.
Cut your peels into strips.
Put them in the jar.
Pour the vinegar into the jar.
You want to make sure that the vinegar level is above the orange peels.
Leave the vinegar alone for two to three weeks.
After two to three weeks, discard the peels and pour the vinegar into a spray bottle. If you are not satisfied with the sent leave it in the jar a little bit longer.
Spray generously on appliances, countertops, tables, desks, or other surfaces. Then wipe with a cloth or paper towel.
The reason this works is because the acid in the fruit and the vinegar are natural cleansers . Plus the citrus fruit make it smell good. Clean without the chemicals!
