Orange Vinegar Cleaning Mix

Orange Grapefruit Vinegar Cleaning Solution

Here is an easy All-Purpose cleaning solution using the peels from oranges and grapefruits and vinegar.


In a wide mouth jar, fill with peels from oranges and/or grapefruits. I packed them in, so there were a lot, but not so tight there wasn’t room to move a bit. In the picture, I used a canning jar. I also used an empty juice bottle. It wasn’t easy to get the left over peels out.. but it worked well too.

Once the peels are in place, cover to the top with white vinegar.

I let mine sit for almost a month before I used some. I poured straight into a spray bottle and used neat. But it smelled really strong of vinegar.

The second bottle I filled, I fill about half way, and then topped off with water. Distilled would be best for cleaning glass, but even tap is works.

You can also buy orange essential oil. A few drops would scent your mixture more of oranges, but may cause streaking – I haven’t tried it, yet.

Happy cleaning! (Now there’s an oxymoron if there ever was one!)
