Citrus All Purpose Cleaner

Orange, Lemon or Grapefruit Peels

Save all of your orange, lemon or grapefruit peels and place them in a mason jar (or other jar that seals on top).  Fill it to the top with vinegar and replace the lid. Sit it in your cabinet for 7-14 days (I do 14) and it really releases the citrus oil from the peels. 

 Take 1/2 cup of the vinegar and pour it into a squirt bottle with 1 cup of water and 1/2 tsp. of liquid Castille soap (This actually can be used this with just the vinegar, but I like the Castille one too).
