An all-purpose vinegar cleaner is a powerhouse when it comes to eco-friendly cleaning, but not everyone is fond of the strong scent it leaves behind. In order to balance out the strength of vinegar, the Yummy Life blog was inspired to soak herbs, fruit and spices to dilute the smell.
Using simple household ingredients like citrus peels, cinnamon sticks and fresh leafy green herbs, the Yummy Life provides homemade solutions for clean-smelling products like Orange Spice, Lemon Rosemary, Lime Thyme and Grapefruit Mint. Soaking these natural ingredients in vinegar takes about two weeks, but it's a clean and simple way to ensure that your home is scoured with only nature's best. When nicely labeled, these also make thoughtful gifts for other homeowners.
