We all know there’s some toxic crap in our household cleaning products — even the ones that say “eco-this/bio-that”. We can find decent products at a few stores or online, but they’re often expensive or they go so quickly since we’re wanting to use them in the place of all the 409, Comet, bleach, Windex, and other cleaners.

There is a very cheap, very CLEAN, and *actually* eco-friendly option…

Soaking lemon rinds in white vinegar for two weeks, then transferring it to a spray bottle!

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Collect a jar-full of lemon rinds after each use — I LOVE a glass of H2o + salt + lemon in the morning, so I go through quite a few lemon wedges each week.
  2. When your jar is full, fill it with equal parts water and white vinegar.
  3. Fasten a lid over the jar and place it in a cool, dark spot for two weeks.
  4. When it’s time, transfer to a spray bottle and use as an all-purpose cleaner!

Now you’ve not only created your own THING (which is cool as hell to do), AND you’ve switched over to the non-toxic product realm (go you), but you’ve also gotten great use out of something you were going to just throw away. SCORE!

*BONUS POINTS if you compost the lemon rinds afterwards. 😉
