I like this idea. Can you use other fruits like, oranges, lemons or limes. All citrus fruits? How long does the aroma last? Does it ever turn moldy or a foul smell? Just wondering?
Thanks for the idea!

Thank you so much ! :) Sorry for the late reply. I have not tried other citrus fruits but I would imagine they would dry the same time. I say a few weeks makes the colors still bright and the scent pleasant.

No foul smell they just simply lose their scent with time. When they get dark in color just dispose and start again. :)
