If you find yourself with a bowl of lemons and they are about to go bad, here is the perfect answer to re- purpose them into fresh lemon juice and an all purpose household cleaner
Cut all lemons in half
Squeeze the lemons with a juicer
Pour juice into an ice cube tray and freeze for future use
Put the lemon halves in a large jar after squeezing them and cover with white vinegar and cover
Let the jar sit for 2-3 weeks
Ingredients for Household Cleaner
1 quart tightly packed lemon halves
White distilled vinegar ( enough to cover the lemon halves )
Liquid Castile soap ( unscented)
Lemon essential oil, optional
Pack a large glass jar tightly with the lemon halves after you have squeezed the juice out, and then fill jar to the top with white vinegar. Close and set in a sunny spot to infuse for two-three weeks.
Strain the vinegar, discard the peels, and store the vinegar in a glass jar in a dark, cool spot.
To make all-purpose cleaner, pour 1/2 cup of the vinegar mixture into a spray bottle. Add in 2 cups water, 1 teaspoon Castile soap, and 15 drops lemon essential oil ( this is optional )
S hake the mixture well, and then spray onto surface and wipe clean with a dry cloth.
