This is a picture of the start of my cleaner. It is an old ice cream tub filled with the peelings of grapefruit and then covered with vinegar. At first I didn't have enough of the grapefruit peels. But my husband has a grapefruit most days at work for lunch, so he just brought them home to me. I then added them to my vinegar and grapefruit mixture until it is full. Now I will let this sit for about 3 to 4 weeks. When the time is up I will strain out the grapefruit peels and leave the vinegar liquid solution. When I need to refill my bathroom squirt bottle I will fill it with half the solution and half water. I love it and it works great!

I have been trying to make more and more of my own cleaners. By doing this I not only save money but I also believe it is better for us. I have seen several posts on other blogs and also some pins on Pinterest for homemade orange cleaner. We don't eat oranges every often but after doing a little research I realized you can really use just about any citrus fruit and get the same results. My husband does eat several grapefruit a week so that is what I used for my cleaner. I have been using this recipe for about a year now and I really like the results. I keep a spray bottle in the bathroom and I recently made my own home made wipes with it also.
