Chemical free citrus cleaner

I try as far as possible to use only natural cleaning products in the house (chemicals are bad for the environment, get into the water system, are harmful to people and animals in the house – not to mention many brands test on animals which is unacceptable) Most of my cleaning I do with bicarb, lemon juice and white vinegar. I like this idea because it gives the solution a lovely fresh smell.

Add orange peels (or any citrus peel) to a quart of white vinegar in a closed container and let it steep for two weeks. Mix the citrus/vinegar solution half/half with water and pop into a spray bottle to use for cleaning. Works for cleaning fixtures, floors, tiles. It is tough on scum and it smells great. Thanks to the Little Brick Ranch blog for this idea.
