A while ago I posted about making lemonade with some yellow sticker lemons after pancake day.
At the end, I wrote this.
. . . I thought about the 'shells' - didn't want to just chuck them unless I had to. I googled around and this is what I've done.
I've chopped up the peel, put it all in a waterproof/air tight container and covered it with white distilled vinegar. In two or three weeks I will strain it into a spray bottle and lo and behold, I will have a splendidly lemon scented all purpose cleaner (so Google assures me anyway).
I'm looking forward to trying it out!
So that's what I did and I got round to straining the liquid yesterday and decanted some into a spray bottle half and half with water.
I'm very impressed. It has brought my hob and my sink up to a lovely shine with minimal elbow grease and I'm glad I bought two spray bottles because one is going in the bathroom!
Yes, it smells a bit vinegary but that smell doesn't last long and it's certainly not chip shop!
Definitely doing this again.
By the way, the spray bottle is £1.00 from B&Q but you can recycle a Jif or other spray bottle. Just wash it well first.
