Fresh Citrus Cleaning Solution for the Home


If you’re reading this you must have an interest in making your cleaning routine safe for you and your family to use. This past year I’ve been working towards ridding our home of toxins. Both in what we put into our bodies in the form of food as well as in the form of cleaning supplies. I’m by no means a pro. But I am trying. And that’s the first step.

This is one cleaning solution that works well for cleaning counters, sinks, and floors. It’s super easy and it makes use of all the orange peels we go through with four little citrus lovers.


  • 1 quart mason jar
  • 1 orange peel
  • 1 lemon peel and juice
  • white vinegar
  • water

**Fill a wide mouth mason jar with the orange and lemon. Then add the vinegar until filled. Let sit for 12-24 hours. Mix 1:1 citrus cleaning solution with water. Place in spray bottles and use as desired! There ya have it folks. Simple, fresh and clean.

**add more water if needed depending on your vinegar tolerance. wink.
