Being Resourceful

Green Citrus Cleaner

Remember the limes I had juiced? I just couldn't bring myself to throw away the peels. A whole big bowl of wonderful smelling lime peels. So, I went in search of a use for them that wouldn't take long, nor was complicated. I found this: A homemade Citrus Cleaner. 

First, you take all the lime peels...

Then you pack them REALLY tight in a jar (cute jars preferable, but not mandatory)...

Last, you pour plain old white vinegar over them.

You're supposed to leave them alone for a few weeks. Then strain them, then take however much of the solution and mix it with an equal amount of water. Supposedly, this is a pretty basic all purpose cleaner. I am anxious to try it in a few weeks and tell you what I think. If I don't like it, the beauty is that I am only out a few pennies from the vinegar!

Hope it works!

The actual link I found for this uses oranges, but I figured citrus is citrus...right?
