The Uses Of Orange Peels At Home: Opinion.

Orange peels are not for the trash or the garbage disposal anymore. Sure, these fruit casings smell delicious–despite their slightly bitter taste–but there are so many other reasons not to toss those citrus peels.

For instance, orange peels can be used to create a fresh, non-toxic DIY cleaner that you can use around the home and thus can help save your money. The solution disinfects, reduces mold, and removes calcium build-up–and it’s also quite pretty! You can even bring the skin of your favorite fruit into your beauty routine by using orange peels to concoct a yummy-smelling.

See the best DIY ways to reuse your orange peels in this gallery below.
