It's been approximately ten days from when I set up my lemon & vinegar cleaner. An idea I got from this pin and information I got here.
I strained out the lemon peels.
Put the peels in a bag for composting.
And then put the resulting liquid in a spray bottles to use in my cleaning around the house.
About 2 days after I put together my lemon mix I also did the same with some oranges. My family wasn't eating them unless I peeled them for them so I peeled the last 4 or 5 oranges and put the edible portion in a container.
And the peelings in a mason jar.
Which I again filled with vinegar.
Once again I waited the ten days.
Strained out the orange peels. Put the peels into my compost bag.
Then I got to cleaning with my new cleansers.
My stove top before.
And after. Still needs a little extra elbow grease but you see how well this went.
The vinegar smell doesn't last very long and you are left with a very lovely, very light citrus smell.
