I don’t like oranges.
So when I decided to make this Homemade Orange Cleaner I realized I would have to come up with orange peels somewhere.
But lucky me, I work with a guy who eats an orange every day.
Now, to pitch the idea!
The look he gave me after I uttered the words ‘Can I have your orange peels?’ was pretty awesome. I do love evoking that look from people.
I told him that he would get the pleasure of knowing what would otherwise be waste was going to be reused! Another incredulous look.
Next, I offered him a bottle of the result of his contributions! No luck there either.
Lastly, I offered cookies. He eats them by the bagful. Everyday. This, I knew, was a guarantee.
Today, I have two orange peels soaking in vinegar. By the end of the week I’ll have enough to fill my jar and let ’em soak. 🙂
I think I might add some cinnamon too.
