How to make your DIY Lemon Cleaner
First put the peels in a screw jar so that they fill the glass well.

Now fill the glass with vinegar so that the peels are completely covered and no air remains in the glass.
Let the mixture stand for 1 to 2 weeks. Then you can carefully pour the liquid into a spray bottle and fill up with (distilled) water in 1:1 ratio.
The result is a powerful lemon cleaner, which you can use versatile in the kitchen and bathroom to clean shelves.
