Making a Lemon Peel Cleanser without Vinegar!

Here is an easy way to make an all-purpose cleanser with only leftover lemon peels and water!

You can use it to clean everything (except marble): kitchen counter, greasy kitchen tub, bathrooms, floors you name it! It’s very handy to have it around and it can be easily applied with a spray bottle. 

Homemade Lemon Peel Cleanser


  • Lemon  and/or orange peels

  • Water


  • Put used lemon peels and/or orange peels in a jar, fill it with water

  • Place a small bowl on top so all the peels are submerged in water.Otherwise they get moldy.

  • Cover with the lid without screwing it

  • Keep adding lemon peels and water until it's full

  • Strain the liquid with a cheesecloth, compost the peels OR if you're feeling lazy, after straining you can keep adding new lemon peels to the old ones.


  • If you have plenty of leftover lemon/citrus peels from making lemonade, fill the jar and wait at least 2 weeks before straining them
