I used to spend tons of money of chemicals to clean my house. However, I got to a point where I realized that I shouldn’t be putting toxic chemicals to surfaces where I can breathe and absorb them. So I switched them out for Lemon Vinegar. Yep, super cheap vinegar does an amazing job of cleaning. It’s acidic so it helps dissolve soap scum, hard water stains and other types of icky buildup.

Vinegar alone isn’t a disinfectant so I like to add lemon rind to the vinegar, as lemon is a natural and mild disinfectant. If you’re looking for how to use this Lemon Vinegar Recipe, try my Homemade Household Cleaner Recipe.

      You don’t have to remove them. I usually leave them in. The color and smell of citrus gets more intense but since this is not for anything other than cleaning, it doesn’t hurt.
