Jagna Niedzielska's ecological cuisine

Homemade grapefruit cleaner. The fluid is suitable for most surfaces. In my kitchen, it is used on a regular basis and for almost everything. I use it to clean countertops, cupboards, fridge, windowsill, wipe the hob or oven door.

I prepare the liquid in small portions, I do not stock up. When I order grapefruit from an organic Sicilian plantation, I peel it thinly (without albedo) and freeze it. Thanks to this, nothing is wasted, and I can make the liquid on a regular basis and enjoy the pleasant smell of grapefruit. After a week, the finished liquid still smells like vinegar, but this smell quickly evaporates from the surfaces that I wipe. If it bothers you a lot, you can dilute the vinegar liquid with water.


  • peel of 1 grapefruit
  • about 200 ml of spirit or apple vinegar
  • a few drops of tea tree oil


Peel the grapefruit peels from the white part, i.e. the albedo. Just put the skins into a bottle or jar and pour vinegar.

Let stand for 7 days in a dark place. After this time, strain the liquid through a sieve to separate the skins. To the finished liquid, add a few drops of tea tree oil, which is known primarily for its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is best to pour the liquid into the washer. Such a homemade liquid is suitable for most surfaces.

The recipe for this universal and natural cleaning fluid comes from the book "Ecological kitchen of Jagna Niedzielska". It is a compendium of knowledge on healthy food storage, as well as vegetarian and vegan recipes.
