How To Make Scented Vinegar For Cleaning
- White vinegar
- Quart-sized jar with lid
- Peels from citrus fruit (oranges, lemons, limes or grapefruits)
Start by juicing your citrus. Set aside the juice to freeze and use later. Cut the peels up into smaller chunks. Add the citrus peels to your quart-sized jar until it’s about halfway full. You can also add some dried rosemary if you wish.
Heat the vinegar, either on the stove in a saucepan, or in a bowl in the microwave. When your vinegar is hot, pour it over the citrus peels in the jar. Place your lid on your jar, and let the jar sit for 24 hours.
After the 24 hours, strain the vinegar and pour into a small spray bottle. You can clean just about anything and will also keep your home fresh with a citrus scent!
