Make Healthy Citrus Enzyme Cleanser With Scraps

Homemade citrus cleanserI was eating lots of organic grapefruits, oranges, and lemon water, so figured I’d try the homemade citrus enzyme cleaner.

Enzyme Citrus cleanser is supposedly good for many things including: cleaning things, insect repellent for self and garden, fertilizer, and hair conditioner. Here is where I got the idea. Check it out for more uses.

I just put citrus scraps and water in the plastic juice container and let it sit on the counter for 3 months. The recipe said to shake everyday and keep the lid loose so gases can escape and the bottle doesn’t explode when opening. I never shook mine and it did not bubble. About 2 months into the project I realized I was supposed to include sugar, so I added about a tablespoon.

After 3 months, I used it to clean the bathtub and surrounding tile, and kitchen cupboards. It worked! I bet it would work even better if I used more sugar and maybe even some yeast.

A shortcut is to add 1 tsp. of yeast and let it sit (shaking everyday) for 2 weeks, then it’s ready to use.
