DIY Citrus Peel Multi-Purpose Cleaner 自製多用途清潔劑

If you are a citrus lover, this trick will allow you to use the fruit to their fullest! 🍊

1)Collect a jar of citrus peel, any will do - mandarins, lemon, grapefruit etc, and fill up a jar with white vinegar, make sure the peels are covered. (Try to avoid metal lids, but reuse plastic or stainless steel lids.) Soak the peels for at least a week. If you are collecting the peels slowly, keep them refrigerated or frozen.

 

2)Once soaking is done, filter out the peels with a strainer or sieve - note that the liquid will be a little thick like honey. Don’t throw the peels away, you can compost them, or place them in your plant pots.

 

3)Dilute 1:1 with water for multipurpose cleaner, and transfer to a spray bottle. Use is as you would with any other multi-purpose cleaner. 💦

 

4)Spray on stove top and kitchen wall to get rid of grease, wipe down any surfaces at home to disinfect, even mop the floor with it!

 

The essential oils and acids from the citrus peels don’t just smell good, but are also filled with antiseptic and antibacterial properties, the best natural cleaner you can have, zero-waste & home-made!
