Homemade Orange Surface Cleaner

In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun….

and for me the fun is found in not cleaning but making cleaners!

If you were to come to my home you would not find the cleanest of homes.

I have a friend who says her house is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy.

I did not get the cleaning gene. My sister hogged all of that.
But this simple diy seriously makes it more fun for me.

Homemade Orange Surface Cleaner


Distilled Vinegar
Orange peels (this particular one was made with blood oranges which gives it it’s gorgeous color)

Place your discarded orange peels into a jar and cover with vinegar.
Let sit for 2 weeks.
Pour into spray bottle and start cleaning.

I just made this same cleaner with lemon and it’s great on grease.  If you are interested in learning more about homemade cleaners my sweet friend Colleen over at Little Homesteaders has some great homemade cleaner recipes for you!
