Life Hack- How to make scented vinegar for cleaning

Making homemade lemon-scented vinegar


I’ve mentioned here before how easy it is to clean with vinegar. And sometimes I get a little creative with my mixes and I make scented vinegar for cleaning (insert ‘ooo’s and ah’s’ now).

This is also really easy (have you noticed how I don’t ‘do’ anything more complicated than ‘very easy?)

Essentially what you are doing is soaking some type of citrus peel in white vinegar for a few weeks and then at the end of 2 weeks-ish you’ll have scented vinegar that you mix with water to make your homemade cleaning solution.

How to Make your own Scented Vinegar

  • Orange or lemon peels-from 1 or more fruits, more peels will make a stronger solution
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • Jar with a tight fitting lid
    • Place peels in the jar, cover with vinegar, and let sit for 2-3 weeks.
    • Strain
    • Mix with 3 cups water and you’re done!

This mix can be used anywhere you’re normally spray other cleaning products. Vinegar is usually 3% acidity so this works to clean & disinfect without harmful chemicals.
