Yesterday I mentioned about food waste, and what I’m trying to do to reduce it in my house. It’s not easy and I’m certainly no angel, but I reckon it’s better to do something when I can rather than nothing at all. So today, I used my leftover citrus bits (orange rinds, squeezed lemon halves, lime peel) that I’ve been collecting in the freezer for the past few weeks, and made a natural cleaner. Or hopefully did – I’ll find out in two weeks.
Even though I, along with three million other people, follow Mrs Hinch on Instagram, I am not a natural cleaner (ho ho). I like to use them where I can though: our place isn’t huge and I don’t like the idea of filling it with chemicals. So, when I was researching about ways to reduce food waste, I found that you can make your own cleaner concentrate with leftover lemon peels and distilled vinegar, so I gave it a go to try it. I’m hoping the lemon will cancel out the vinegar smell, but I know my mum has been cleaning with vinegar for years so I’m confident it will work.
Yes, today’s new thing is as simple as that. I’ve no idea if it’ll turn out – I have to check it in two weeks and find out. Hey, I’m just glad I was organised and planned something, I can probably class that as something new too.
