Ulog 158: Easy Lemon Vinegar For Cleaning

I love the scents of lemon and bleach when I am cleaning; for some reason if the bathroom, floors or kitchen don't resonate one of those two cleaning smells, I don't feel as if I have cleaned completely. And since I don't know how to make bleach, I make lemon infused vinegar for my daily cleaning.

I know most people only use the lemon's peel when making vinegar, but I prefer to use the entire lemon; especially in this instance. I had two lemons that were starting to get a little soft and I didn't want to waste them.

I use this lemon vinegar cleaner on my counter tops, in my sink, on the faucets, toilet, tiled floors, stove top and shower stall's walls. It leaves such a vibrant scent of the lemon for hours after the cleaning.

It's so versatile as a cleaner and won't scratch any surface I am cleaning.

  • Wash & slice lemons
  • Transfer lemon peelings into glass jar
  • Pour equal amounts of white vinegar and water into the jar, seal jar
  • Set jar aside for 2-3 weeks - but make sure to open jar every day or two to push the lemons back under the vinegar; or you could use a weight t keep the citrus down below the liquid
  • Strain the lemon and peels out of the vinegar
  • Pour into a spray bottle for cleaning

Since there is vinegar in this recipe, I covered the jar with a plastic lid versus a metal ring.

Very interesting, how do you use it when is ready? Do you put it in a spray bottle?

Thanx, I needed something like this because of my dog. She hates plastic as much I do and likes to run around with the cleaning stuff. You probably saved her life.

Oh yes!!! We have two dogs here and the one, a puppy, will grab ANYTHING! This I feel safe with knowing she won't get chemicals in her system.

Neat! That never would have crossed my mind; I've only ever used vinegar for cleaning coffee parts!

I do not like the smell of vinegar at all. Does the lemon cover it up?

the vinegar scent goes away real quick. But it does such a great job cleaning
