Spray bottle or pump bottle (this time I used a pump, as my spray bottles are currently in use)
Citrus peel - orangelemon, grapefruit, clementine. Use any from the citrus family or even a combination
Fill a container with citrus peel. Your choice which you'd like to use - or even combine. *
Pour the vinegar into the jar, making sure all the peels are fully submerged.
Leave it to rest, with the lid on, for at least one week. I often leave mine for two if I have the time.
Strain this mixture and pour in a spray or dispenser jar/bottle.
Dilute with fresh/filtered water with equal parts 1:1 - one part concentrated cleaner, one part water to use as a spray. Note* I usually separate my mixture so some is diluted and some is kept un-diluted for different cleaning needs.
And voila, your natural citrus cleaner is ready to be used as and when needed.
* If you're not a massive citrus eater then you can begin the process of collecting peel in a bag in your freezer before swapping over to a glass jar.
Where NOT to use the citrus cleaner
While there are 1001 uses for this cleaner, there are also a few places you SHOULDN'T use it. Because of the acidic nature of vinegar, it's best to avoid using this on granite and marble surfaces.
Also, as mentioned above - if using citrus peels and/or essential oils with d-limonene - this is toxic to cats and should be used with caution.
Although it can be used with some woods - I'd suggest caution as the acid can have adverse effects on certain wood finishes.
