3 Ingredient All-Purpose Cleaner DIY

If you’re goal is to remove household toxins and chemicals, here is an easy DIY all-purpose cleaner. It is my absolute favourite! Not only is it effective in cleaning, shining, and cutting grease, but it smells fantastic. The bonus, it’s 100% all natural.

Here’s what you need:

Easy DIY All-Purpose Cleaner

  • 5 organic oranges
  • Distilled white vinegar
  • Water
  • Glass jars with lid
  • Empty spray bottles
  1. First start by washing and drying your oranges. Warm water is fine.
  2. Then peel the oranges.
  3. Fill your glass jars with the PEELS only. (use fruit for juicing later)
  4. Pour white vinegar over the peels until it reaches the top.
  5. Place the lid on.
  6. Store in a cool dry place for 1-2 weeks.
  7. Once the vinegar turns a dark colour, strain the solutions into a bowl.
  8. Discard the peels.

You should be left with a rich amber coloured liquid. This will be your cleaning concentrate solution.

In a clean spray bottle, fill halfway with cleaning solution.

Add water to the remaining half of the bottle.

Place spray nozzle into it. Shake gently, and now you have an all-purpose spray!

You can change it up by adding organic lemon peels, organic grapefruit peels, etc. The oils in the citrus fruit is what cuts grease and gives a lovely fresh scent. The vinegar is an effective cleaner and won’t harm surfaces.
