Materials You’ll Need:

  1. White Distilled Vinegar: This is the base for your infused vinegar. It’s an excellent natural cleaner due to its acidity.
  2. Citrus Peels: Lemon, orange, or grapefruit peels work well. They add a pleasant scent and boost the cleaning power of vinegar.
  3. Herbs or Essential Oils: Choose herbs like rosemary, lavender, or mint, or essential oils for added fragrance and cleaning properties.
  4. A Glass Jar or Container: To store your infused vinegar.


  1. Prepare Your Citrus Peels:
    • Wash and peel the citrus fruit.
    • Remove as much of the pith (white part) as possible because it can be bitter.
  2. Add Herbs or Essential Oils:
    • Place the citrus peels in the glass jar.
    • Add a few sprigs of your chosen herbs or a few drops of essential oil. This step is optional but enhances the scent and cleaning power.
  3. Pour Vinegar:
    • Fill the jar with white distilled vinegar, completely covering the citrus peels and herbs.
  4. Seal the Jar:
    • Close the jar tightly with a lid.
  5. Steep and Infuse:
    • Store the jar in a cool, dark place for about 2-4 weeks. This allows the vinegar to absorb the citrus and herb aromas.
  6. Strain and Store:
    • After the steeping period, strain the infused vinegar into a clean container. Discard the citrus peels and herbs.
    • You can dilute the infused vinegar with water if it’s too strong for your cleaning needs.
  7. Label the Container:
    • Be sure to label the container as “Infused Cleaning Vinegar” to avoid confusion.


You can use your DIY infused vinegar for cleaning in several ways:

  1. All-Purpose Cleaner: Mix 1 part infused vinegar with 1 part water in a spray bottle. Use it to clean countertops, glass, and various surfaces.
  2. Floor Cleaner: Dilute the infused vinegar with water and use it to mop floors.
  3. Window and Glass Cleaner: Use a solution of 1 part infused vinegar and 2 parts water to clean glass surfaces.
  4. Bathroom Cleaner: Apply undiluted infused vinegar on bathroom surfaces, let it sit for a few minutes, and scrub as needed.
  5. Deodorizer: Spritz the infused vinegar in rooms or on fabrics to freshen the air.
