I'm not a total neat-freak (come on....my house is lived in 24 hours a day 7 days a week!), but I am a little obsessed by germs and making sure they are dead...you would always find a bottle of antibacterial spray dousing my kitchen worktops after every meal!
So despite wanting to make the switch to something more natural, it took me a little while to actually do it!
I knew these anti-bac sprays are no good for our long term health, and wanted to provide a healthier, safer environment for my family.....so when I found a recipe using vinegar and orange peel it looked so pretty in the picture I knew I had to give it a go!
- White Vinegar
- Orange peel
- lemon (optional)
- Essential oil (optional)
Add left over orange peel, a few drops of essential oil (I used orange) and let it soak for a couple of weeks!
I had a lemon that was turning past its best, so I squeezed out its juice and sliced to add a bit of extra zing and cleaning boost!
Strain all the peel and pour into an empty spray bottle and you a ready to go!
It has a strong unsweetened citrus scent...a huge improvement on the vinegar stenched work surfaces that are left when using just vinegar and water alone!
Not a bad product I have to say and costs literally pennies to make!
I defiantly feel more comfortable letting the kidos clean up after dinner.....if only they would just wipe the table the way I like it done! ......sigh!
What D.I.Y products have you made and tried? Drop a comment below.....I need more ideas!
