Examples of DIY tips from Limoneira and Megan Roosevelt include:

Grapefruit Multi-Purpose Cleaner

You’ll need:

  • Peels from multiple grapefruits
  • Small glass jar with lid
  • White vinegar
  • Empty spray bottle

Directions: Separate the peel from the grapefruit (or the citrus peel of your choice). Using a small glass jar, place the peel inside, packing as tightly as possible. Fill jar to the brim with white vinegar. Cover jar with lid, and let sit for two weeks. When the infused vinegar is ready, fill a spray bottle with equal parts filtered water and grapefruit-infused vinegar.

Citrus Pan Scrubber


  • Orange or lemon halves
  • Coarse table salt

Directions: Once the pan in question has cooled, add a few tablespoons of coarse salt. Take citrus halves (for added usefulness, juice them first and use the juice as you wish) and scrub away. Since this cleaner is completely non-toxic, simply wipe off or rinse with water after cleaning.

Lemon Microwave Cleaner


  • One lemon, halved
  • Microwave safe bowl
  • 2 cups water

Directions: Place water and lemon halves in a microwave safe bowl. Cook on high in microwave for 3 minutes. The hot lemon steam will coat the inside of the microwave, and allow for easy removal of debris and food remnants by wiping with a damp cloth.

Limoneira has also linked with additional global cleaning experts that share their knowledge with the customers of its grocery and food service partners around the world. Their biographies can be found on Limoneira’s website.
