I actually started with citrus infused vinegar. To make citrus infused vinegar, fill a quart mason jar with citrus peels and cover with white vinegar.
Homemade All Purpose Cleaner
I use this all purpose cleaner on most surfaces in my home. It has vinegar in it, so I don't use it on my stainless steel fridge. I use it on counters, walls, and cabinets though. It uses natural essential oils to kill germs and cut through grease.
I peeled several lemons, being careful not to get the white parts on the peel. I put them in a mason jar but didn't stuff them in. I poured white vinegar over them to completely cover them. I let them sit for two weeks and strained out the peels
Once my vinegar was infused, I used some of it to make this all purpose cleaner.
1 cup lemon infused vinegar
1 cup distilled water
1/2 teaspoon dish soap
15 drops lemon essential oil
10 drops tea tree oil
I mix the cleaner right in the bottle. I use a little funnel so I don't spill and add each ingredient to the bottle. Put on the cap and shake well.
