Can you believe spring cleaning is around the corner? Because at least for me time has gone so fast! Between all the Christmas shopping, the NYE celebration and the winter bundled up (+ the resolutions that are a staple around January) the months and days have come and gone so fast that I barely had enough to blink.

But with this new season coming around the corner I’m excited. It’s the time of the year that we do a deep cleaning, that we take the time to go through our stuff and Mari Kondo our heart out. But better yet, it’ the time of the year that gives us an excuse to DIY all the cleaning supplies we want.

Really, there’s nothing better than the homemade version of the cleaning supplies you need. They are chemical free, they smell great and honestly, they work as good as the ones you can purchase at the supermarket. Oh, and they are really cheap and frugal which is always a plus around here.

My all time favorite is this homemade all purpose orange cleaner. Simply put, it works.

Actually, it works so well that I don’t buy any other thing to clean surfaces. It’s tough on the stains and gentle on the surfaces and it smells delicious which gives it a definite bonus point and makes it a delicious spring cleaning product. seriously… can’t you smell how fabulous this is even by the photo!

Store in a dark cool place for 2 weeks and then remove the peel.

Told you this was an easy project!

I like to store it in a spray bottle or the mason jars and then just pour a bit of it on top of the surface that needs cleaning and rub it with a cloth.

Basically use it on top of the same things where you would use an all purpose cleaner.
