i’ve placed some citrus peels in vinegar. this vinegar is intended for cleaning around the house, which seems like a lot of work, but i really dislike the smell of vinegar. especially when i use it in a spray bottle and the tiny particles float around in the air. in the past, i’ve tried adding essential oils like tea tree and lavender to cut through the sharp vinegar smell. that works great, but essential oils are not inexpensive, and since the vinegar will mostly just go down the drain, i thought i’d try orange peels and see how that works.
i filled up a jar with vinegar and added orange and clementine peels to it. i’ve read that you can leave it for a few weeks, shake it up once in a while, and the citrus oils eventually come out of the peels. if it all works out, this should act as a degreaser with a fresh citrus scent. let’s see if it works.
anyone tried this yet? let me know how you use vinegar.
