DIY Citrus Household Cleaner


Cleaning your home o-natural, really couldn’t get any easier. One of my favourite all-purpose, household cleaners, is this citrus peel vinegar. It’s an inexpensive dissinfectant that effectively eliminates mold, bacteria, grease and germs, and is safe for you, your kiddies, and pets. 


  • Orange, or any citrus fruit peels
  • Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Water
  • A large, airtight glass container
  • Strainer
  • Spray bottle


Preparation Method

  1. Fill an airtight glass container with citrus peels. You can use peels from any citrus fruit including oranges, grapefruits, lemons + limes.
  2. Fill the container with vinegar, so that the citrus peels are covered.
  3. Seal the glass container and store it in a cool, dry place for 2 weeks – or until the vinegar takes on a strong citrus smell. The concoction will also change colour, depending on the fruit used.
  4. Strain liquid and pour into a spray bottle, adding water as desired to dilute the solution. A 1 : 1 ratio will maintain the cleaning power of the solvent.


This natural household cleaner is excellent for disinfecting counter tops, cutting boards, stove tops, inside the fridge, and even the car dashboard.
