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!)




Banana Orange filling for Crepes

This is my all-time favorite recipe for Orange Banana crepes.

I use this Dessert Crepes recipe. I make a lot of crepes to store in the fridge for quick snacks (or meals). I also store extra of this orange sauce in the fridge too.

Ingredients
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup orange juice (I do pulp free)
4 teaspoons grated orange peel (I rarely use this much, usually more like 2 teaspoons)
bananas

Orange Sauce for Crepes
Orange Sauce for Crepes

In a sauce pan, combine butter, sugar, orange juice and grated orange peel and bring to a boil.
Remove from heat.

Add banana – sliced long-way or in round bites. Let bananas warm through.

Pile onto your crepes with some orange sauce and eat up..

I usually eat with a fork and finish with a spoon.. mmmm

Store leftover in fridge – this will separate, and the butter on top will harden. ┬áMelts in microwave easily enough.
