What is infused vinegar?
Basically it’s just white distilled vinegar that has been infused for a few weeks with citrus rinds and herbs. It’s a great as a fabric softener and glass cleaner! You could also also make into an all purpose natural cleaner when diluted with water.
So how do you make this awesomeness?
1. Fill a jar 3/4 full with lemon rinds, orange rinds, or a blend of both and fill the jar with White Distilled Vinegar.
2. Put in pantry, or leave on a counter (out of direct sunlight) for about two weeks.
4. Strain the peels out and the liquid is ready to use as a fabric softener!
For glass cleaner or an all-purpose cleaner (not granite friendly) follow the steps above and add this additional step below:
Put one cup of the infused vinegar in a spray bottle with 1 cup of water, shake, add some Essential Oils if you want (I like adding 10-15 drops of lavender when I make 32 ounces).
Voila! You just made some natural, home cleaner/fabric softener without any harsh nasties!
Happy Pouring & Spraying!
P.S. Yes, this still smells like vinegar! But only for a second. The vinegar scent quickly dissipates and you are left with a fresh citrus scent.
