Making my own cleaning solution! I fill a jar with white vinegar leaving enough room at the top to add citrus rinds. As we eat the fruit (oranges/grapefruit/lemons/etc.) we drop the rinds into the vinegar. I let the mixture “stew” for 2 to 3 weeks and then strain the liquid into a spray bottle. I use this to clean the bathroom (yes, even soap scum off the tub), kitchen, wherever I formerly used chemical cleansers. This solution is easy to make, easy on the environment, easy on the senses (hands, no chemical smells, etc.), and leaves the place sparkling clean. I highly recommend this. (BTW, after straining the liquid, refrigerate the rinds in a covered container for a couple more days. When a cleaning task requires more “elbow grease,” use the rind to “scrub” the surface. No grit, no scratching!)  Enjoy! and let me know what you think if you try this. 🙂
