Lemon Vinegar Cleaner

Check out this recipe for Lemon Vinegar Cleaner.  I love the effectiveness of cleaning with vinegar and that it is a natural cleaner. My husband is not a huge fan of the smell of vinegar so when Stephanie posted the idea to steep orange peels in vinegar to make it smell better — I couldn’t resist trying it too.

Lemon Vinegar Cleaner - Easy to make and Non Toxic!

After trying the Grapefruit Vinegar Cleaner I thought why not try lemon.

It is our personal favorite.  I can spray areas and know that it is not harmful to my children. I clean the bathrooms, doorknobs and kitchen counters. There is always a bottle under my sink with vinegar in it.  After two weeks of steeping the peels in the vinegar, the lemon peels did work. It turned the vinegar into a sweet smelling cleaner.

Lemon Vinegar Cleaner:

1, 16-ounce canning jar

2 lemons, peels only

vinegar to cover

Put the lemon peels inside the jar. Pour vinegar in the jar to cover the peels and put the lid on tightly. Store in the pantry for two weeks, then transfer the vinegar to a spray bottle and use for all your cleaning purposes!

  1. Thanks for the tips. I do plan on steeping the lemon peels at some point, but, I’m in a pinch today with no lemons & am getting ready to mop but ran out of PineSol. What if I put a few drops of store bought lemon juice in the vinegar/water solution now before I mop? Since you won’t be able to reply immediately, I’m goin for it anyhoo! Thanks
