Making Scented Vinegar to use in Natural Cleaning Recipes

I have used Plain White Vinegar for a long time for cleaning my kitchen, floors, bathrooms... It is cheap and natural cleaner.  The past few weeks I have been mixing up some natural cleaning recipes found on Pinterest and many of those recipes call for vinegar.  And along with all the cleaning recipes, I found a great way to use things from your kitchen to make a scented Vinegar.  - It is so simple.  The hardest part is waiting for it to steep for 2 weeks.  I filled a glass jar full of orange peels, lemon peels, lime peels, ginger root pieces, cinnamon sticks, and some apple cider mulling spices and then I just poured plain white vinegar in the jar until it was full.  I placed the jar in a dark cabinet for 2 weeks and then strained the vinegar into another Jar.

Note:  Do not use Vinegar on Granite Counter tops!!
