(Beginning stages)

(After  2 weeks)

You will need lemons and vinegar and a quart sized jar..

Fill the jar with lemon rinds. So that not to wasted the lemon juice, I squeezed the juice out and saved for a marinade that was going over chicken for dinner.

6 lemons did the trick for filling the jar. Cover the rinds with enough vinegar to cover.

Put a lid on your jar and leave on the counter or in pantry for 2-3 weeks.

Strain out the lemon rinds and bottle this amazing cleaning lemon vinegar. You can add essential oils for extra cleaning power.

For example, add tea tree and lavender for antibacterial spraying.
