I can’t for the life of me remember where I first came across this idea, but it’s sprinkled all over the Internet. It was so easy and works great! And, it’s way cheaper and less toxic than “regular” cleaners.
Here’s what you need:
Peels from 3-5 oranges or 6-8 mandarins (I had the kids peel mandarins and told them they could eat whatever they peeled)
A quart of distilled white vinegar
Here’s what to do:
Fill the mason jar with the orange peels.
Pour in enough vinegar to fill the jar to the top:
Put lid on tightly and let sit for 10 days.
After 10 days, strain out peels:
Pour into an empty spray bottle, and use to clean your counters, bathrooms, floors, or pretty much anything you like!
The cleaner itself still had a vinegar scent to it, but once I sprayed it onto the counter and wiped it with a towel, the smell completely disappeared!
Note: After about a month, I noticed the vinegar smell getting stronger, so you may want to use it up before that time.

Homemade citrus cleaner is healthier to use, less toxic, and easy to make! Even the kids like using it. Be careful, however, as it eventually will go bad and start to smell like vinegar!
