* Citrus peels
* White vinegar
How to make;
1) Cram as many citrus peels into a jar you have on hand. I keep a mason jar next to our compost bowl in the kitchen. All other kitchen waste goes in the compost bowl. Citrus goes into the jar. Once the jar is full, I go on to step 2.
2) Pour white vinegar over the peels until the jar is very full. Seal the jar and shake to get out all the air bubbles. Add more vinegar if needed.
3) Put in a sunny window and let it steep for 2 weeks.
4) After 2 weeks, pour the contents of the jar into a funnel inserted into your spray bottle. The citrus vinegar will go into the spray bottle, and the peels will stay in the funnel. Compost peels. Add enough water to your spray bottle so that the mixture is roughly 1/2 citrus vinegar and 1/2 water.
5) Use on everything.
It can't get much easier than that. In fact, I can't believe I got 5 steps out of this simple process.
Hooray for the combined antibacterial power of both vinegar and citrus.
And hooray for a very effective child safe spray so the kids can help out even more!
