Making your own Orange Infused Spray Cleaner is a thrifty, and easy project to do! You'll love the way it cleans, but also that you are using discarded orange peels to do it.
Last year I showed you how to dehydrate those citrus peels into Orange (or lemon, or lime) zest for baking, teas, and more. This year I am showing you how to use those collected orange peels from your family and save them to make this easy yet effective cleaner.
Save orange peels in a bag or container in the freezer till you have enough to fill a quart (or slighlty larger) glass jar.
The citrus peels add oils to aid in the cleaning properties, as well as works to infuse some of the orange scent into it.
I added fresh Rosemary to mine, but you can also add cinnamon sticks, or cloves to your cleaner. (they just trigger migraines for me, so I stuck to herbs). The herbs and spices just add a bit to improve the scent of the cleaner.
