Default Some Variations..

There are a couple of variations I have tried and like, so I will share them. One batch of this orange cleaner, I also added BASIL to. It added a nice basil/herb fragrance and added disinfectant power. The other is SAGE. The Sage is very powerful, antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal & purifying... it also adds a fresh 'clean' scent. I love Sage (and basil, for that matter) I bundle my sage for burning and throw it on our burn piles-- lol I always figure the neighborhood could use a little 'purifying'. It really smells delightful.
I grow 2 kinds of sage- either will work, both broadleaf sage and white sage.

With adding the herbs, I just steep as normal (a week to 10 days) and strain off the same as if it is just the citrus peels & vinegar. It just adds another dimension and covers the strong smell of the vinegar. They also add more disinfectant power to the cleaner.

Thanks for the details! Sorry I deserted the thread for so long.
After soaking all sorts of citrus, I ended up buying citrus spray again. (It smells so good!)

Months later, my concoction still smells like vinegar. I use it...just don't enjoy it like the condensed spray.
