Most people think of citrus fruits as being acidic, but did you know that their peels are actually alkaline? This means that they are great for cleaning because they can neutralize acidic messes. Citrus fruits are also full of enzymes that can help to break down dirt and grime.
In this article, we will show you how to make your own citrus enzyme cleaner using leftover fruit.
This cleaner is great for use on all kinds of surfaces, and is free compared to buying expensive commercial cleaners. Plus, it is eco-friendly because you are reusing fruit that would otherwise be thrown away. Read on to learn how to make your own citrus enzyme cleaner!
Ingredients: – 2 cups of citrus peels (lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit) – 1 cup of brown sugar – 1 liter of water – Airtight container Instructions:
1. Wash the citrus fruits thoroughly and remove the peels. Try to remove as much of the white pith as possible, as this can make the cleaner bitter.
2. Cut the peels into small pieces and put them in an airtight container.
3. Add brown sugar to the container and mix well.
4. Pour water into the container and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
5. Close the container tightly and place it in a dark, cool place for 3 months.
6. After 3 months, strain the mixture using a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
7. Transfer the liquid into a spray bottle for ease of use.
To use, simply spray the cleaner on the surface you want to clean and wipe it with a cloth. This cleaner is great for use on countertops, sinks, floors, bathrooms and more!
Note: The enzymes in the cleaner may cause it to bubble or foam, which is normal. Make sure to use the cleaner within 6 months of making it, as it may lose its effectiveness after that.
