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!

Citric Household Cleaner Peel 2 oranges, or 2 grapefruits, and soak them in vinegar for 2 weeks in a tightly sealed mason jar. You could put them on the window sill. This is for a household cleaner, but what I discovered is that this stuff takes iron stains off of the sink, faucets, showers and toilets and it works better than Lime Away and almost as good as Iron Out. Non toxic.
