A jar of orange peel infused in vinegar

Orange Peel in Vinegar


1 X litre jar

Enough orange peels to completely cram into the jars

White vinegar (never use cider vinegar in cleaners as it attracts fruit flies)


Curl the peel around inside the jar. (I used 8 large oranges and couldn’t fit any more but if your oranges are smaller you will need more peels)

Pour the vinegar into the jars to completely cover and close tightly

Store the jar in a cupboard or other cool, dark place for 2-4 weeks then remove the peels and transfer the vinegar to a spray bottle or another storage bottle.

For basic cleaning purposes I dilute the vinegar with water by 50%

See the website for more information or come to our meeting tomorrow night where

the theme is:

Making your own household products  (detergents, cleaners, sprays, aerosols)
We’ll be set up for demonstration and practice groups so come and join in the fun!
