Grapefruit Cleaner

I read once that you could soak your orange peels in vinegar for a few days for a rocking all-purpose I did! Well, not ORANGE peels, but grapefruit and lemons. I didn't see why this wouldn't work as well. 

So I got a large mason jar and filled it with plain ol' vinegar.

I shoved peels from lemons and grapefruits I was using up in about a 3 day period.

I don't have a mesh strainer, so my tea strainer had to work to separate the pulp from the liquid.

There you have it! It still has a smell of vinegar, but lots of yummy lemon and grapefruit scents as well. 

This didn't cost me very much since I already had the spray bottle and the fruit. The fruit was getting used regardless and the vinegar was about 1.29 or so at Walmart-and I still have half a bottle. Pretty excited to try this out on everything!

    i would love for you to come link up this or any other amazing project at my creativity party going on right now!

    thanks so much for sharing!

  3. I love this idea. I use vinegar as a cleaner, but the lemons and grapefruit would definitely help make it smell much nicer.

    1. It does! PLUS, the citrus is a great de-greaser. You could also add lemon oil, which is what I have been doing recently!

  4. Details of Bank of America's along with other mortgage lenders' plans to assist homeowners as part in the settlement
    will probably be within court papers which might be expected
    to be filed Friday my website when you
    add this up not simply would you like to owe the payday loan company the
    amount of money to the defaulted loan but you will likely owe your bank money.
