Soak orange peels in vinegar for two weeks in a sealed mason jar then pour the vinegar into a spray bottle. Use as a non-toxic and yummy smelling "green" cleaner. I love using vinegar to clean with but have always wondered how to make it smell better - can't wait to do this!
Combine: 1 C water + 1/4 C white distilled vinegar + 2 tablespoons olive oil + 10-15 drops essential oil of your choice. Mix all ingredients together in an empty spray bottle & shake gently before each use. Spray directly onto the dusty surface wipe with a microfibre cloth. Mother would be so proud!
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.
