    • Vinegar can be quite harsh on some surfaces, although I have never encountered any problems with average, considered use. If you’re worried, do some more research or perhaps try a cleaning solution of water and castile soap.

  1. This recipe is so good cause you get to eat yummy citrus and then make the citrus cleaning spray so nothing is wasted. So many uses for this spray so easy to make it is my favourite.

  2. I have spay bottles made up ready to go in the bathroom, laundry and kitchen. It’s my go to for everything. It would also go well in a “Green cleaning” gift hamper along with the cleaning paste and lots of other DIY goodies.

  3. We’ve been using this cleaning spray fo 6 months and I now always have a batch brewing. I recommend it to all my friends who are thinking of making the swap from store bought cleaners. It’s so easy and cost effective also reduces waste! A no brainer in my opinion.

  4. Krissy I just love this cleaning spray, so easy to make as well. I always have a batch brewing so to speak haha. Thank you for the easy recipe. Regards Kay

  5. I love this cleaner for all parts of my home and the citrus scent it leaves behind is wonderful – it makes me want to clean more! And so easy to make with having the ingredients in the pantry.

  6. Love this cleaner. Its so simple to make up and love that Im using natural products. A really effective cleaner that I use everywhere in my house.

  7. I just had a lot of lemons so I froze the peel as well as juice. Hoping frozen peel will still be suitable for this spray, didn’t want to waste.

  8. I’m Just loving this spray. It’s ticks all my boxes: uses ingredients I’d either be putting in the compost or to landfill, economical ingredients – vinegar, it’s easy to make, and it works!

    I’m actually going to buy one of those water containers with the tap at the bottom to use to make this. Reckon it’ll look good on the bench and make draining off the citrus vinegar so easy.

  9. Hallo, I am just wondering whether you can put in the whole fruit? ie if I have a grapefruit that isn’t quite ripe and a bit tart for eating, can I put in the whole lot, flesh and all? Or do I need to peel it and throw the flesh away and just use the peel? Thanks!!

    • Hi Janet, did you watch the video? Fill a jar, top with vinegar (exact quantities don’t matter much) and leave 2-3 weeks. Happy making (and cleaning)!

  10. Hi Krissy, I’ve just made a batch citrus cleaner and I am wondering if it suitable for use in the shower.
    Thanks for your gene.

    • This citrus spray is so easy to make and so effective. I use it mainly in the bathroom for cleaning the shower. The mould and dirt just lifts away with a light scrub. I have a solution on the go all the time and have some citrus peel in the freezer for the next batch
