Inventive Orange Peel Hacks For A Fresher-Smelling Kitchen

0 7

An easy way to use orange peels for a fresher-smelling kitchen is to bake them in the oven. Get a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper, then lay down a couple of orange peels and put it in the oven. Set the temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and leave it undisturbed for 30 minutes. The scent of the baking peels will deodorize the foul smells lingering in your kitchen and leave behind a citrusy scent.

Another internet-favorite hack is to boil a couple orange peels with water. Simply add a few peels to a pan, pour in enough water to submerge the peels (TikTok user @classicallygreen suggests filling the pan halfway with water), and bring the concoction to a boil. Once the water starts bubbling, lower the heat setting and let it simmer for a fresh-smelling kitchen. Don’t forget to keep an eye on the mixture, as you might have to add more water occasionally. 

In case you want to add an additional fresh scent besides just citrus, throw a few fragrant spices into the water and orange peel mixture before bringing it to a boil. A few cinnamon sticks (powder works if you don’t have sticks handy), a couple of cloves, and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract will help deodorize your kitchen after you cook. You can also add sprigs of rosemary, thyme, or mint.
