I thought this was a useful tip & another use for for left over citrus skins once all the juice is squeezed.  Here is the link.

I like this idea.  I think I'll have a go with it.  Much rather use a natural product like this than harmful chemicals.  Hope the citrus will disguise the smell of the vinegar though!

Hi Iris, 

Try using distilled white vinegar for cleaning it doesnt smell so strong. A lot of shops sell it amonst the cleaning products.

Distilled vinegar is the thing that I use most in cleaning, together with Bicarbonate of Soda.  They do a good job without scratching your surfaces etc.

I'll try that again!

I always use bicarbonate of soda for sinks as it is ok with the micro station and does a good job. Will try the citrus idea too.

Thanks, Hattie.  I have some white distilled vinegar in the larder ready for more pickling/chutney.  Just need the citrus when I go shopping next.
