This is a mild citrus cleaner for all hard surfaces including granite and other stones.

1. Take a quart jar, with lid, and fill it with citrus peels. Use any peel or any combination of peels.

2. Pour in water, enough water over the peels to cover them and fill the jar. 

3. Allow this to marinate on the counter for about 4 weeks, giving the jar an occasional shake. At the end of 4 weeks, strain out the peels (put them down the disposal for a fresh clean smell), and dilute in a spray bottle by using half citrus solution and half water. Use to clean more delicate surfaces like granite, marble and as a general all-purpose cleaner.

Change this up to make a stronger disinfecting solution for all surfaces except marble, granite, travertine, etc.

Fill the quart jar with the fruit peels and cover them with white vinegar.  Let marinate on the counter for about 4 weeks, strain out the peels (put them down the disposal for a fresh clean smell), and dilute in a spray bottle by using half citrus solution and half fresh white vinegar. Use as an all-purpose disinfecting spray.

TO USE BOTH CLEANERS:  Spray and wipe

Once you strain the peels out, store any remaining concentrate in the refrigerator.

DISPOSAL CITRUS BOMBS

1. Place 5-6 small pieces of citrus peels {lemons, oranges, limes, etc.} into an ice cube tray and fill up with vinegar.  If you have any leftover citrus you can use that too.

2. Freeze until solid.  

I generally make up two trays of citrus bombs when I do these.  If you need the ice cube trays for other purposes, you can then transfer the cubes to a freezer bag or other freezer storage container once they are frozen

3. Drop several in the disposal, turn on cold water and run until they are completely broken down.

The Vinegar will disinfect and the peels will freshen the smell.
