Great Household Uses For Oranges

Clean Cookware
Boil orange rinds in a pan that has burnt on stuff food to it. Let it sit for at least an hour to soak in, and clean the grime right off!

Mosquito Repellent
Rub fresh orange or lemon peels over your exposed skin to keep mosquitoes away. It’s said that mosquitoes and gnats are totally repulsed by citrus scent.

Make Your House Smell Wonderful
Cut up peels. In a saucepan add peels, 1 cinnamon stick, a few cloves and fill to the top with water. Simmer for a nice simmering potpourri.

Easy Scrub for Cast Iron Pans
Half an orange with some coffee grounds poured into it makes a great scrubber for a cast iron pan! The peel helps to protect your hand from the coffee grounds (which are an excellent abrasive), as well as adding citrus cleaning power. Then just toss all in your compost.

Refresh Your Garbage Disposal
Keep orange peels in a jar or bowl under your sink. After they dry, periodically put them down the garbage disposal – helps clean blades & smells wonderful.

Help Relieve Your Migraines
Boil the orange peels and let steep for 10 minutes. Drink as a tea to get rid of migraines.

Clean the Microwave
Place orange peels in a bowl of water and microwave for about five minutes. Then wipe the microwave clean with a sponge.

Clean Your Cutting Board
Rub the empty peel across your cutting board to deodorize.

Keep Kitties Off Your Lawn
Make a mixture of orange peels and coffee grounds and distribute it around where the cats hangout. If the problem persists, put down a second batch and moisten it with water.
