In 2018 I began fermenting apple cider vinegar from scratch. When it was ready I decided to infuse it with the orange, grapefruit and lemon peels that I was collecting. You will recognize these citrus fruits as additives in your store purchased cleaners as their oils they are a powerful antiseptic. They smell good too.
You can use white vinegar to infuse with your fresh citrus peels rather than making apple cider vinegar from scratch. It only takes a few days to draw the oils out of the peels.
Once infused it doesn’t take much to make a natural antiseptic spray cleaner. I use just under a one part of infused vinegar to 4 parts water (if using apple cider vinegar and washing walls, I use less vinegar).
Use baking soda as a scrub for tough marks, grease and spills. You will be surprised at how clean surfaces become. Pause to check in as you may notice that the surroundings have a different feel to them. Both baking soda and salt are softening agents and can be used to soften water. This translates into the surroundings too. Your body is in more aligned with natural elements and opens or softens with them while harsh chemicals can attach your senses, cause allergies and mood swings. I have personally noticed that I enjoy being in my environment more and that creating my own cleaners from household products is grounding and satisfying.
Once you begin to use these products you may find them easier and cheaper to use eliminating the need for costly cleaners.
Vinegar-Currently I recommend that you buy from local grocery stores as the prices have been inflated on-line.
