Make and Use a Citrus Classroom Cleaner

  1. Tear the peel from one orange and put it into any jar (like a clean peanut butter jar).
  2. Fill the jar with white vinegar and screw on the lid. Let the contents “brew” for a couple of weeks until the vinegar turns pale orange in color.
  3. Pour a few ounces of this concentrated cleaner into a small pail or a spray bottle filled with water (this cleaner will kill germs but is non-toxic for our air and water).
  4. Use it to clean any hard surface at school: desks, sinks, counters, etc.

(Do not use on natural stone.)
