Hi there, dear friends 😀
I was reading up on vinegars for cooking when I stumbled across this Orange Infused Vinegar which is used primarily for cleaning.
Then an idea came to me ===> why don’t I mix some of the Orange Infused Vinegar to my Homemade Enzyme Cleaner for a better fragrance ? 💡
Well, those of you that have been following my post on making your own enzymes for cleaning will know that sometimes, the enzymes don’t smell very good. 🙄
Anyway, I made my first batch of Orange Infused Vinegar last month – you can find many recipes for that over the Internet. It’s really easy – — I just sliced some orange peels thinly and put them into a bottle of white vinegar.
Let the orange peels sit in the vinegar over 2 weeks, giving the bottle a good shake every now and then. Wow, the smell of Orange Infused Vinegar was really aromatic and refreshing – almost like the smell of orange zest or like when you peel an orange! What a wonderful tangy, citrus scent … just perfect to add on as a great fragrance to mask the homemade enzyme smells. Good and strong enough to use as an air freshener, too!
Some of my blog visitors had suggested before on putting a few drops of essential oils to cleaning enzymes, but I’m not sure about other countries but good essential oils in Malaysia do cost a lot. So, this Orange Infused Vinegar can help to cut costs as a bottle of vinegar doesn’t cost a lot at all.
To use the Orange Infused Vinegar, you can use it for cleaning as if you would use the e the cleaning enzymes, or you can add a few spoons or more to your pail of diluted enzymes for cleaning purposes.
Other uses of Orange Infused Vinegar – dilute it with some water in a spray bottle and it will freshen up any stale spaces or rooms , especially store rooms. Oh, the orange scent is really wonderful!
One word of caution though – if you have cats, try not to use too much of the Orange Infused Vinegar as cats don’t like the orange smell. But then, hey, for those of you that want a technique to deter cats from going into some of the places you want – just spray a strong mix of Orange Infused Vinegar and Water and see how that works! 💡
Do have fun trying out your Orange Infused Vinegar !
With best wishes,
