How to make an antibacterial all-purpose cleaner spray made with citrus-infused vinegar.
Add the citrus peels and spices to a quart-size glass storage container. There should be enough peels to fill the jar. Pour the vinegar over the peels and spices. The vinegar needs to rest, preferably in an area with lots of sunlight, for 2 weeks. Gently shake the container every few days to stir the ingredients. I've found that vinegar will slightly rust metal lids, so I use a heavy towel and rubber-band over my storage jar, or aWeck jar
with a glass lid.
After 2 weeks, strain the citrus and spices from the liquid. Pour the infused vinegar into a clean storage container and store at room temperature.
To make an all-purpose cleaner, use the vinegar at full strength or add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of orange peel vinegar to a 16-ounce glass spray bottle (my favorite bottles), and shake the bottle to combine the ingredients. Use on counter-tops, the sink, cutting boards, the tub, a shower, the garbage can, or inside the fridge. Always wipe the surface with a clean, damp cloth. Caution: Never use vinegar (which is acidic) on granite or marble surfaces.
