Citrus Infused Cleaner

This Citrus Infused Cleaner is a great way to use what is already in your hand, it is not only satisfying & cost effective, it helps us connect with nature and fulfill (the sometimes lacking) creativity that we crave. 

I have been making this citrus infused cleaner for years, it is such an all rounder, and very satisfying to make if the fruit is from your own back yard.  To be used as a general kitchen & bathroom cleaner for benches, sinks, baths, basins, showers & toilets.  I especially love it for wiping up oil spills, as it cuts through grease, grime and bacteria. It is also perfect for cleaning windows & mirrors.
