All Purpose Citrus Household Cleanser

All-Purpose Cleanser from Citrus Peels, Vinegar and Water

Vinegar and Water Cleanser

Using vinegar to clean is easy and it works. However, the aroma of vinegar leaves something to be desired. If you are cleaning calcium deposits out of the coffee maker, washing machine, dishwasher or bathtub, there is nothing better.  However, the scent of vinegar is not exactly aromatherapy. Below is an alternative to plain vinegar cleanser that leaves a clean citrus scent.

All-Purpose Citrus Household Cleanser

Combine the cleaning power of acetic and citric acids by making an all purpose household cleanser using orange/citrus peels and vinegar. It is easy to make, but the first batch takes several weeks to steep, so start your citrus peels soaking today.

How To Make Citrus Household Cleanser

Fill a container (I use glass) with citrus peels. Cover peels with vinegar and let steep for a month.  Shake container occasionally.  At month's end, strain the mixture. The remaining fluid is concentrated cleanser.  Mix two parts water with one part concentrate in a spray bottle and use it to clean floors, surfaces and windows.


The natural, high-powered all-purpose cleanser you have made will leave your home smelling of citrus and not vinegar. The monetary cost is negligible, but the benefits to your household and the environment are tenfold.  Try this Earth-friendly cleanser today.
