Here's a simple and smart way to upcycle your old orange peels: Make them into an eco-friendly household cleaner. Fill a glass jar with white vinegar and place the peels from three or four oranges inside. Let it sit for seven to 10 days, then strain the liquid and transfer it to a spray bottle for an orange-infused vinegar that can be used as an all-purpose cleaner around the house. The white vinegar is a natural disinfectant, and the natural oils from the citrus work as a degreaser. It smells great, too!
