Orange Scented Vinegar
I love vinegar…. I hate the vinegar smell though. Vinegar is an excellent cleaning product. It disinfects, is antibacterial, gets rid of mold, etc. Pretty much… It a green cleaning rock star. The only reason I don’t use it more around the house is because my husband loathes the smell. I admit, it isn’t a favorite smell of mine either.
A while ago I read about how you can use orange peels to take the vinegar smell out of vinegar and leave a fresh citrus sent. I thought it was worth a shot. I had about a quarter of a bottle left so I just peeled some cuties from my neighbors tree and dropped them in. You are supposed to let it sit for a month for it to have it full effect, but after just an hour I saw a huge difference.
To make your own:
Have a container with vinegar in it
Jam it full of orange peels.
Put it under your kitchen sink for the next month…. or if you are impatient like me…use right away :)
Now that I have some yummy smelling vinegar, there may be a whole string of vinegar related posts ;)
