What I am about to share with you is the simplest of all homesteading, self-sufficient things.

Making your own orange oil cleaner.

It is this simple:

Peel oranges- eat the oranges

Place the peelings in a large jar and cover the peelings with vinegar.

Let set in a sunny window for about 3 weeks- longer is OK, less time will make it weaker.

You can collect the peelings over several days to a week.

Strain vinegar into a clean jar.

That is it!  I dilute it by half into a spray bottle.

Now you can have high quality orange cleaner for just pennies and you know exactly what is in it.
