Ok, so I juice about 20 oranges a week, sometimes more. I do not have a compost yet, so I have to throw all that good stuff away. /cry Today, I remembered a DIY vinegar citrus solution I had seen on Pintrest. So I peeled my oranges, and lemons and set them aside. It took me 5 minutes to make this….
I am so happy to have a place for my oranges and lemons! No more waste!
DIY Citrus Vinegar Cleaning Solution
Makes one quart
water (used later, see below)
1. Peel, leaving just the outer skin and the white pith.
2. Add to a quart size jar. Fill with vinegar and cap the jar. Let sit for about 2 weeks, then strain out the peels. Rinse out the canning jar. Add the strained liquid back to the jar & cap. This is the concentrated cleaning solution.
3. To prepare for use you will need a clean spray bottle (size of your choosing) and a funnel. Fill the spray bottle 3/4 of the way up with water. Using the funnel, pour in the citrus vinegar mix into the spray bottle. Shake to combine. Store this solution in the fridge.
