Orange Cleaner

In our quest to remove nasty things from our bodies and lives, we have changed more than the way we eat.  It has brought about changes in what we use on our bodies and in our home.  
We use white vinegar and baking soda for most of our cleaning needs, but sometimes we need something a little stronger.  The solution? 
White Vinegar
and Citrus Peels
I save the peels from all the citrus fruit we eat.  Instead of putting it into the compost, I put it in a mason jar and fill it to the top with white vinegar. 
When the jar stopped smelling like vinegar and started to smell like oranges (or whatever peels you are using) it is ready.  Just pour it out!
I pour it into a spray bottle diluted halfway with water.  It is a great degreaser!
