DEODORIZE THE OVEN
To combat any lingering fish or meat smells after cooking, place a pan of orange peels inside your oven, set the temperature at 350°F and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. It will diminish the odor and give your kitchen a fresh citrus scent
In a pinch, rub your choppers with the inside of an orange peel. The D-limonene will temporarily brighten your smile.
WARD OFF PESKY INSECTS
Flies, fire ants, cockroaches and mosquitoes are not fans of orange oil. Place a few pieces of peel in bowls in the corners of your home to help keep the bugs at bay.
Rub the inside of an orange peel on fixtures like your sink faucet or showerhead. The peel contains D-limonene (also known as citrus oil), a compound that can remove other oils like grease and fingerprint residue and naturally buff metal surfaces.
Leave orange peels out to dry, then grind them in a food processor or blender until they form a fine powder. Sprinkle in your bath for a calming effect.
