Natural Non-toxic Cleaner Recipe

Natural Non-toxic Cleaner Recipe

Are you looking for ways to reduce waste and go green? If so, here is an easy natural echo-friendly cleaner that you can use in place of store-bought ones. 


All you need are 2-3 ingredients! 

  1. Distilled vinegar
  2. lemon peels
  3. citrus peels
  4. mason jar


Why do they work?

Vinegar is acidic in nature and can kill bacteria as well as get rid of grease, dirt, and grime.

Orange peel contains oils that can help degrease surfaces

Lemon peel also degreases, kills bacteria, and mold. 

The peels add extra cleaning power plus help with the smell of vinegar. 



  1. fill your mason jar halfway with lemon or orange peels
  2. pour the vinegar in the mason jar about an inch or 2 from the top.
  3. cover and let steep for 2-3 weeks
  4. strain 


To use: add equal parts of the solution and water to a spray bottle. 


please note, some things shouldn't be cleaned with vinegar. Here is a link for more info about what you can and can't clean using vinegar:
