Citrus Kitchen Scrub

Another use for those orange peels I refuse to throw away.

Cleaning Scrub - for the kitchen and bathroom - NOT your skin

a couple of handfuls of dried citrus peels.

These are a mix of orange, blood orange, lime, lemon and grapefruit

1 cup borax

In a food processor grind the peels.  I did it about 1/4 at a time.  when they are a good even consistency and don't seem to be getting any smaller it's time to add the borax.  Grind some more.  The peels tend to grind a bit finer after the borax is added.

Then just store it in a jar or bag.  To use sprinkle some on the surface or on a sponge and scrub away.  Rinse off or wipe down with a damp towel afterward to remove residue.    I love the way it makes the kitchen smell when I use it.  When I'm doing the sink I usually leave the strainer in so that I can catch large chunks before they go down the drain.  Sometimes I forget and it never seems to harm anything but better safe than sorry.

  1. The participant's card technique is to get a count as near 21 or 21 itself however not more than 21. Some casinos, as well as|in addition to} basic betting retailers, provide blackjack amongst a selection of casino-style video games at electronic consoles. Video blackjack game rules are generally more favorable to the house; e.g., paying out only even cash for successful blackjacks. Video and on-line blackjack video 1xbet games generally deal every round from a recent shoe (i.e., use an RNG for every deal), rendering card counting ineffective in most conditions. The supplier deals from their left ("first base") to their far proper ("third base").
