These lemon dust cloths take just minutes to prepare and can be stored in an airtight jar until you're ready to use them. Sometimes dusting with a dry cloth does more harm then good as it moves the dirt around instead of catching it. These cloths are damp and infused with vinegar to help catch and kill the bugs at the same time. The addition of olive oil and lemon rind bring a soft polish to your furniture.

Use boiling water and two teabags to clean hardwood floors. The tannic acid in tea creates a beautiful shine for hardwood floors. Let two teabags steep in the boiling water for a few minutes. Pour the tea into a bucket. Take a soft cloth and wring it out in the tea. The cloth merely needs to be damp, not soaked. This will enable the floor to dry quickly. Wash the floor and be ready to be amazed by the sheen. @Lora Young | Great Home IdeasGreat Home Ideas

Make Your Own Lemon Dust Cloths--Made 8/12 semi successful....I used grapefruit rinds instead of lemon...maybe that was the problem because the whole container ended up smelling yucky and the peels started breaking down. I did LOVE the dust rags in the vinegar, water and oil solution though. Will use them again!
