Scented Vinegar

Sometimes things can be too simple to be true.

Until now, I used to clean my apartment with my homemade multi-purpose cleaner, but I recently discovered this recipe for scented vinegar and have been cleaning with it ever since.


Here is what you need:

Here’s what you do:

  1. Cut the lemon in half and use its juice for a dish or homemade Gatorade.
  2. Soak the pressed out lemon in the white vinegar for 2 days.
  3. Fill in spray bottle
  4. For extra antibacterial properties, add a little tea tree oil to your vinegar.

I like to use reusable cleaning cloths that I made myself by cutting up an old bed sheet of mine. After, I just throw the pieces of cloth in the wash with all my other clothes. Cleaning my apartment has truly never been easier or more toxic free.

    I’ve done this with oranges and really like the result! I’ve got to start stockpiling some old fabric so I can use them as wipes!

    Is it like you can do it with any citric fruit?

      Hey Kyndal, I think you can do it with any citric fruit. A friend of mine uses grapefruits.
