Vinegar is an effective all-purpose cleaner that no kitchen should be without. It is a safe alternative to chlorine bleach, without caustic fumes. Can’t get past the lingering aroma of vinegar after cleaning the kitchen? There’s a natural solution for that.
Lemon and orange scented cleaning products are popular for their fresh, clean scent. Instead of tossing the peels from fresh citrus fruits use them to infuse a pleasant fragrance into white vinegar. The fruit peels from lemons, limes, grapefruit, oranges, tangerines or a combination can be used to make this Citrus Infused Vinegar Cleaning Solution.
Cleaning and Laundry Uses for Citrus Infused Vinegar Solution
Save money, and do no harm to your lungs when cleaning with this basic, natural solution. Pour a little citrus infused vinegar solution on a sponge or use in a spray bottle to easily clean and disinfect the breakfast bar, kitchen counters and to wipe up spills.
Vinegar is a natural and effective way to soften bath towels, and healthier to use than commercial fabric softeners. Add ¼ cup of the vinegar solution to the liquid fabric softening dispenser in your washing machine when washing a load of towels. Your bath towels will be ultra-soft, and absorb water better than when you use commercial softeners, and there's no sour, vinegary scent. Give it try and let us know how you like cleaning with this vinegar solution.
