So thanks to our multiple buy-in-bulk-and-save memberships we sometimes tend to have a lot of SOMETHING on hand. Right now we’re sitting on a whole heck of a lot of baking soda and vinegar! Together they make the most AMAZING volcanic eruptions every 3rd grader dreams of. In our case… they are the inspiration we need to DIY something awesome.
Our first oh so easy use – vinegar house hold cleaner. It’s such a no brainer because vinegar has been used for.. well.. forever. Not to mention it’s CHEAP! We got 5 liters for less than $4! We’re not fans of anything that’s made from harsh chemicals, that could harm any living thing and that adds fake smells of floral bouquets.
Why vinegar you ask? Well, vinegar has been proven to kill 90% of most common bacteria. Pretty fab considering it’s safe to use around kids and pets.
All you have to do is grab a mason jar, fill it half way with vinegar. Add some orange peels from that healthy snack you just ate and TADA! In a week or so you will have the most amazing smelling orange vinegar cleaner! Tips: the longer you leave the peels in the stronger it smells, strain out any big chunks of peel that might be floating around, and cut 1:1 with water.
Now grab a spray bottle at the local dollar store and you’re in business! Earth friendly and inexpensive to boot!
