Homemade  Cleaner

Orange peels, grapefruit, etc…. A ton.

1. Fill a glass jar with orange peels. It needn’t be done all at once. Just whenever you eat an orange, put the peels inside the jar.
2. Cover the peels with vinegar. You may want to pack down the peels so less vinegar is needed for this step, but it’s not necessary.
3. Let the vinegar and orange peels sit for a few weeks. The vinegar will take on an orange/golden hue and smell powerfully of oranges.
4. Take the vinegar out of the jar and pour it into a spray bottle,strain through a small funnel – I funnel it through a coffee filter –  diluting half/half with water.

And use!!!!!  how easy it that ….
