How to make your own natural Multi-Purpose Spray


1. Fill a jar with citrus peels.
You'll need a large jar with a lid or a couple if you don't have a large one. Any citrus peels will do ie. Oranges, Mandarins, Lemons, Limes, Grapefruit, Blood Oranges etc.

2. Add vinegar.
Pour enough distilled white vinegar to cover the orange peels and then simply pop the lid back on.

3. Store and wait.
I pop my jar under the sink in a cool dark place for a week or two.  This will infuse the vinegar with the natural oils from the peels.

4. Strain.
Strain out the peels by pouring the liquid through a sieve into a pourable measuring jug. This will make the next and last step super easy.

5. Mix with water and pour into spray bottle.
Mix the peel infused vinegar concentrate with an equal amount of distilled water in a measuring jug and pour into your spray bottle. Use like you would any other multipurpose spray. 

Things to note:
- I used an old Moccona instant coffee jar to store my vinegar concentrate in
- I would highly recommend using our spray free citrus fruits to avoid adding unwanted chemicals to your spray
- I purchased the distilled cleaning vinegar from Bunnings
- I would highly recommend buying a dark amber glass spray bottle. I buy mine from target/kmart.
- I also continue to add the peels to my jar under the sink as I eat my way through our citrus fruits.
- The peels can be composted after they've been strained.
