Kitchen cabnet and counter cleaner

Stormy Stewart


Lately I have had a urge for oranges, something I am usually not interested in. So with all those peals winding up in a compost pile I thought of a few other uses.

Cleans and brightens work space areas in kitchen. Orange oil extract disinfects and helps remove grease while adding oils ability to refresh your cabinets.

Note the tinture takes 3 weeks to prepare, I have a picture but can't access the account it was sent to as yet

2Orange tincture

This is for cleaning or as a muscle rub only do not take internally.

Use only fresh Orange peals cutting away as much white as possible. Break into small pieces and place in a glass jar and cover with 1/2 cup (91%) rubbing alcohol. Place in a dark place for three weeks. Shake it at least every other day. The jar should be almost filled to the liquid top with orange peals., but without them above liquid.

NOTE: you can also make it into an oil by using sweet almond oil instead of the rubbing alcohol
