Love this simple recipe and it just comes spot on me as I have a big bag full of dried oranges rinds.

What's the idea behind this cleaner? I know and use vinegar for cleaning glass and scaling. Are the rinds to get rid of the vinegar smell? Vinegar is not that good for general cleaning, glass aside. How does this recipe turn it suitable for general cleaning?

Also, what is it meant with "general" cleaning? For cleaning in general I just use a duster or a damped cloth as I don't believe in the bacteria paranoia ;-) I only use cleaners to get rid of spots, marks etc.

Sorry for the many questions. Thank You and keep up with the good fruit! ;-)

Hi Gio!

Thank you for stepping by and for your comment.

I am glad u like this recipe. Orange peels release citrus oil which is antibacterial. Now, with the bacteria, I also don't buy into that bacteria paranoia, however, I would say that clean environment is important and that unnatural environment might create some unfriendly bacteria. Also, citrus oil gives that nice scent.

I hope this help! :)

Good fruit to you as well! ;)
