LIFESTYLE NEWS - You need: a glass jar, citrus peel and rind including the pith and membranes, white vinegar, fresh herbs and a spray bottle.
Submerge citrus peels in a little vinegar into a glass jar each day. Add fresh mint, rosemary, thyme or sage if you like.
Once the jar is filled, leave it at room temperature to soak for at least a week, giving it a shake now and then.
When ready, strain the mixture twice through a fine sieve and pour it into a spray bottle.
- If you’re building a citrus peel collection to do this, keep them in the fridge until ready to use.
- You can use any citrus – lemon, orange, grapefruit, lime and clementine – combine them too.
- This is a natural, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, insecticidal mixture.
