Why put orange peels in a bottle: a brilliant trick

Few people know that it is possible to have a scented house thanks to orange peels; how to do

The winter months are also the months of oranges, a very good citrus fruit rich in vitamin C. However, not everyone knows that it is possible to reuse orange peels ; their recycling will also allow you to save some money and have a clean and, above all, very fragrant home.

How to reuse orange peels

Orange peels are very fragrant and it is possible to give them a use before finally throwing them away. These are often reused as a home method to obtain a clean and fragrant home. The peels have cleansing and disinfectant properties; they can be reused by combining them with white wine vinegar .

Then take a jar with an airtight cap or simply a bottle and put the peels and white wine vinegar inside.

Leave the mixture for about two weeks; once the deadline has expired, it will be necessary to filter the mixture and throw away the peels. An orange vinegar will therefore have been created. Dilute the orange vinegar with water; the division must be as follows: 50% water and 50% vinegar.

Place the liquid in a spray container and use it as a cleaner to clean your bathroom, kitchen or living area. You can also clean utensils, sinks, sinks and worktops.

Other methods

If you want a refrigerator that tastes like citrus, there’s nothing better than using orange peels . Place the peels in a container and add a teaspoon of baking soda. The peels will absorb bad odors; you can use the same trick to cover bad odors coming from the garbage bin.

Finally, the peels are excellent for preventing moths from infesting cupboards; just put some peels inside a small cloth bag and hang it inside the wardrobe.

Last but not least is the use of orange peels in cooking ; these are excellent for flavoring dishes such as meat and fish. Also perfect if you want to make an excellent dessert, especially citrus-based.
