Orange Zest Cleaner

We all tend to give more thought to being more environmentally friendly in our homes and elsewhere and here is a simple way to get started with a fresh approach.  Create your own Orange Zest Cleaner.


Take the rinds of 4 oranges and place in a clean jar.  Add 1 cup white distilled vinegar and let set for two weeks.  Strain and add 1 cup water.  Put mixture into a spray bottle and use as a regular all purpose cleaner.  Not only does it smell great, but it contains d-limonene which is a natural solvent that cuts through grease.  Happy Spring Cleaning!
