Making homemade all purpose cleaner is easier than you think. Try this super simple, effective lemon cleaner in your kitchen, bath, and all over your home!
I loooove me some fresh lemons. Lemon garlic dressing, lemon in my tea, lemon water… it’s so good. Plus we all know how beneficial lemons are for the body – cleansing and detoxifying!
But did you know that the lemon benefits keep on giving even after they’re consumed? Don’t throw away those lemon rinds! Instead, keep them and get every last drop out of your lemons by making this fabulous, simple homemade all purpose cleaner.
All you have to do is toss your used lemon rinds and peels into a glass jar and cover with distilled white vinegar like this. Let it sit for several days, up to several weeks. You can just add the rinds gradually as you use them and toss them into the jar. You can also use other types of citrus like oranges.
Your vinegar will turn into a gorgeous yellow cleaner with the power to cut the toughest grease. Then put some in a spray bottle (fill about 1/4) and fill the rest of the way with filtered water. This works great as an all purpose cleaning spray!
I really want to try these spray bottles from Amazon. They are dark glass, so perfect to use with essential oils and DIY cleaning recipes.
Another awesome use is to put some in a tiny cup in the top of your dishwasher when you do a load of dishes. It will make them sparkle and shine!
