  • 1 Large glass jar


  • 4 lemon rinds sliced in half
  • 3 cups white vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp liquid castile soap organic if possible


  • Add lemon rinds to a jar and pour over the vinegar until they are covered. Allow them to sit in the mixture at least 48 hours and up to a week.
  • Strain out the lemons, and add the vinegar mixture to a spray bottle until half full. Fill the rest of the bottle with water, and the teaspoon of Castile soap. You now have a gentle lemon cleanser. Make sure your countertops or wood sealant can take lemon as it can be quite abrasive.
