Pinspired: Homemade cleaner/Spring Cleaning

I'm getting an early start on my spring cleaning. Figured I might as well do it along with the organizing. So I found a pin on making your own multi-purpose cleaner. It's cheap and of coarse, there's no chemicals!
I've always liked the idea of cleaning with vinegar, but it's smelly. Recently, I saw this pin. You put vinegar in a large jar and add citrus peels. Let it sit for at least 2 weeks, and then pour it in a spray bottle with water. On the post, she did a half/half mixture. I actually did a 2:1 mixture. 2/3 water and 1/3 the citrus/vinegar mixture. It works SO WELL on tough messes! And it doesn't streak! Plus, MAJOR BONUS: It's safe!
Now I've got my jar with lemon peels in it to try next. I love a good lemony scent!
