Cleaning Without Chemicals

One way to "B" Well is to remove chemicals from our environment.

Over the past few years, I have been working pretty hard to get chemicals out of my life.   I started making my own furniture polish out of olive oil, vinegar, and lavender oil.    I even started pouring salt on weeds that came up thru the bricks on our patio.  Of course, I grow veggies organically. 

My problem has been with vinegar.  It’s a great cleaner/disinfectant.  Only, I really don’t like its aroma.  That’s one reason for the lavender oil in my furniture polish. 

Then, recently I came across a great idea for making a lemon and or orange vinegar cleaner.  It’s great. 

Hope you’ll try it … and … along with me … help to keep the chemicals out of our lives.


All-Purpose Lemon or Orange Vinegar Cleaner

Fill a mason jar of your choice with cut up lemon or orange peels

Add vinegar to cover the peels and seal the jar shut with a tight fitting lid

Put it away and forget about it for two weeks

After two weeks, strain the peels from the vinegar then add water … a 50/50 mix of water and citrus vinegar is good

Then just clean grease and grime away.
