Natural DIY Surface Cleaner

June 4, 2012

This natural DIY surface cleaner is easy to make and effective on most household surfaces.

This homemade natural surface cleaner is a simple mix of white vinegar, filtered water, and fresh lemon juice.

For even better disinfecting results, soak the lemon rinds in the vinegar for up to a week to allow the lemon scent and juice to infuse into the vinegar.

This natural surface cleaner is effective for cleaning most surfaces. But vinegar should not be used on marble surfaces. Always test a small amount of surfaces you are unsure of.
