Don't throw away your orange/citrus peels the next time you have a snack! You can very easily turn the waste into a fancy, all purpose cleaning, laundry boosting, super grease/soap scum fighting solution.
Yep. That is it. Fill a clean jar with your citrus peels, and cover with vinegar. Put the jar in a cool, dark place, and let it sit for 4-6 weeks (the longer the better). Every few days, take the jar out and give it a stir or shake. It will begin to smell less vinegary and start to smell like a dream. A lovely, sparkly fresh, clean dream... filled with citrus.
Once it is finished, strain the liquid from the peels using a coffee filter or cheesecloth. For most cleaning situations, dilute the orange cleaner to 1/2 cup per gallon of water. Spritz away!
For greasy stovetops, don't dilute the mixture. Just spray a thin layer of straight-up cleaner on the stove and be amazed at the superhero peels that you almost tossed into the trash!
You don't need to eat a bunch of oranges all at once to fill up your jar. Just keep adding the peels to your jar and covering with vinegar until you are sick of citrus or until the jar is full. If you do the add-as-you-go method, start the 4-6 week countdown after you toss in the last peel.
Remember to give your citrus a good scrub before peeling and eating. If you are not using organic oranges, scrub 3 times as hard (preferably with some type of veggie/fruit cleaner) to remove the wax sealing and whatever chemicals have been sprayed on them.
Be careful using any citrus oil in your house if you have some cuddly, purring kitties. They are sensitive to it, and cleaning an area around their usual hang out spot may cause them to get all catty and pee on your bed.
