An infusion of citrus fruit peels and vinegar are soaked for 2 weeks to create a citrus scented cleaning spray.

Once the vinegar is ready, discard the peels and add the vinegar to a spray bottle filled 3/4 of the way with water.

Ingredients

2 large
oranges
2 large
lemons
vinegar
water (used later, see directions)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
If you'd like, juice the lemons and oranges first and save the juice for other uses. Using a spoon, scrape out the fleshy parts, leaving just the outer skin and the white pith.
2
Add to a quart size jar. Fill with vinegar and cap the jar. Let sit for about 2 weeks, then strain out the peels. Rinse out the canning jar. Add the strained liquid back to the jar & cap. This is the concentrated cleaning solution.
3
To prepare for use you will need a clean spray bottle (size of your choosing) and a funnel. Fill the spray bottle 3/4 of the way up with water. Using the funnel, pour in the citrus vinegar mix into the spray bottle. Shake to combine. Store this solution in the fridge.

Has anyone else had the problem of the citrus developing a layer of what looks like mold in the vinegar solution? Is the vinegar still safe to use?

Do I use the cider vinegar or regular white vinegar? I've been using regular vinegar with some spices in it. I love the vinegar because the smells disapate and there are no streaks or residues.
