Save your orange peels and put them in your washer to do laundry. This does something good for mother earth and your clothes will come out smelling fresh and clean. Good for people who are allergic to soaps.

I have always made my own citrus cleaners and find they are very effective, simple to make, and very economical. I use a plant spray bottle, to make it in, and use from, again, VERY cheap to buy.

  • 1 part white vinegar
  • 1 part lemon juice
  • 4 parts water
  • 10 drops of preferred essential oil
I have used lemon grass, grapefruit and orange (lemon grass is MY favorite!). Add all to bottle, shake, and you are ready to go. This leaves mirrors, windows and tiles streak free. It cleans cooking spills, work surfaces, etc, and leaves a lingering citrus smell.
