Check out this recipe for Lemon Vinegar Cleaner. I love the effectiveness of cleaning with vinegar and that it is a natural cleaner. My husband is not a huge fan of the smell of vinegar so when Stephanie posted the idea to steep orange peels in vinegar to make it smell better - I couldn't resist trying it too. After trying the Grapefruit Vinegar Cleaner I thought why not try lemon. It is our personal favorite.
I can spray areas and know that it is not harmful to my children. I clean the bathrooms, doorknobs and kitchen counters. There is always a bottle under my sink with vinegar in it. After two weeks of steeping the peels in the vinegar, the lemon peels did work. It turned the vinegar into a sweet smelling cleaner. You can also add lemon essential oil too!

    Do you dilute this solution with water or use it just as is? I am also interested in using lemon infused alcohol but am uncertain if it needs to be diluted as well. Can anyone help me out?
