This essay explores the possibilities of orange peelings as a chemical-free, all-natural, and organic dishwashing liquid and its recipe about what kind of materials we use from the organic orange peel that may be used to clean common kitchen and dining items.
It will avoid the unnecessary disposal of objects that may be put to good use and inspire Filipinos, particularly the younger generation, to make new products out of biodegradable and non-biodegradable materials that would otherwise be thrown away.
Ideally, this article’s findings would encourage more Filipino youth to pursue entrepreneurial endeavors and find success selling the products they’ve created.
These are the narrow aims of this piece:
First, you need to invent a chemical-free, eco-friendly dish soap.
Two) make orange peels the main component of your dish soap.
Third, for extra cleaning power, use white vinegar with your dish soap or a few drops of tea tree oil.
4) Since orange peels, according to wisegeek.org, are a natural insect repellent, we want to learn if this dishwashing liquid created from orange peels will reduce the danger of bug-causing illnesses included in the utensils people use to convey food into their bodies.
The primary goals of this research are to find ways to reuse orange peels and to draw attention to the potential of orange peels as a dishwashing liquid.
The primary goal of this article is to create an effective organic dishwashing liquid from orange peels.
The experimental phase of the trial, which lasted one week, is concluded.
Some of the supplies needed for this article may be found at local stores, while others can be borrowed from the researchers’ homes.
We were only able to test orange peels, vinegar, tea tree oil, and soap in this investigation.
This desired and actual outcome is the product of three (3) separate experimental sets.
The Orange Peel’s Health and Cleaning Benefits
According to livestrong.com’s “A list of the advantages of orange peels,” the flavonoids in orange peels can reduce the risk of lung cancer.
Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant, and these flavonoids aid its ability to protect against skin cancer.
In addition to liminoid and poly methoxy flavones, orange peels may halt or prevent cancer of the lung and other organs.
Further, a 2000 article at the Arizona Cancer Center discovered that the d-limonene in orange peels reduced the incidence of a particularly lethal kind of skin cancer known as squamous cell carcinoma.
Orange peels include flavones, which have been shown to lower cholesterol.
To further aid in the breakdown and elimination of nicotine, orange peels have been included in a nicotine gum created by the University of Yonsei’s College of Medicine.
According to “Health qualities of orange peel,” written by Maura Wolf and published on livestrong.com, orange peel is a rich resource of pectin, which helps control blood sugar spikes after eating.
The “albedo,” or the white part of an orange peel, is rich in vitamin C, limonene, glucarate, pectin, soluble fiber, and other chemicals, as stated in “How to whiten teeth using orange peels” on livestrong.com.
The orange peel contains limonene, a natural solvent cleanser with widespread application.
D-limonene, found in orange peels, aids digestion, according to wisegeek.org.
The sensations of acid reflux and heartburn are often alleviated by doing this.
This orange peel component is effective for treating gastrointestinal distress such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
The citrusy aroma of orange peels has also been shown to treat mental health problems like low mood, loss of appetite, and anxiety.
Orange peelings dishwashing liquid recipe
In this experiment, orange peelings are pivotal in completing this dishwashing liquid recipe.
Researchers opted to add the previously stated sites because they employed white vinegar and tea tree oil in their dishwashing solutions.
The research was conducted beforehand to ascertain the usefulness and value of these additional components in producing a dishwashing liquid.
Here are the sources we used for this investigation:
White vinegar, one-third cup
1/2 tsp. Tea Tree Oil
Water Dish Holding 6 Cups
One and a Half Antibacterial Soap (grated)
glass container that has been used
This is how a typical first trial will go down:
To begin: 1) Scrub the oranges.
Use a peeler or a knife to remove the orange peel from the fruit.
Prepare a small dish by scraping the white pith from the orange peels into it.
Do not eat the skins.
Third, bring the orange peels to a boil.
Six (6) cups of water with the peels and their white parts should be added to a saucepan.
Bring the water and orange peels to a boil.
Stop it before it boils.
Be sure to stir constantly.
Fourthly, remove the peels by straining the mixture. Remove the peels and discard them before serving.
5) Combine all of the components.
Add a smidgen under a cup of white vinegar to the concoction.
Just half a teaspoon of tea tree oil will do the trick.
Don’t stop stirring until everything is evenly combined.
6- Calm down.
The mixture should be left on the counter for 8-12 hours to cool—alternate mixing.
The researchers continued their experiments despite the unfavorable outcomes of the first. For the second test, this is what was done:
1) Reheat the ingredients together.
Repeat heating the mixture in the same pot it was cooked in.
As the soap is melting, grind it with a cheese grater.
Keep stirring until everything is combined.
Stop it before it boils.
Wait till it has cooled off.
Put it back in the fridge and let it chill for another 8-12 hours.
Do random checks.
Three, store in some receptacle.
Pour the concoction into a plastic bottle so it can be recycled.
It was determined that the second attempt had failed to provide the anticipated outcome; therefore, more testing was done.
The following tools and parameters were employed in the third experiment:
A half-cup of water, half an orange, a tablespoon of white vinegar, a recycled plastic bottle, a pinch of tea tree oil, a bit of grated ivory soap, a pot, and a bowl.
The steps of the third trial are as follows:
Step 1: Remove the orange peel.
Use a knife or a peeler to remove the orange’s skin. Don’t eat the peels; save them for later.
To remove the peels, step two is to boil them.
Add the peels to a saucepan and one and a half (112) cups of water.
Bring the ingredients to a boil over high heat for about five minutes.
Third, remove the peels by straining.
Use a sieve to separate the mixture from the peels and transfer it to a basin.
- Put in the extra stuff. To the mixture, add one (1) tablespoon of white vinegar. Tea tree oil, one (1) teaspoon. The ingredients need to be carefully combined.
Five) Shred the bar of soap.
Grate one (1) spoonful of ivory soap on a cheese grater and add it to the mixture.
Combine everything well.
Sixthly, store it in some container.
Put the dish soap in a bottle made from recyclable plastic.
Step Seven) Let the mixture chill for a full day.
the total number of experiments First Steps in a Trial
Dried orange peels.
First, pour 6 cups of water into a saucepan to prepare the orange peels.
We cooked the mixture (without allowing it to boil) while constantly stirring for a few minutes and then filtered off the peels.
Added a third cup of white vinegar and then half a teaspoon of tea tree oil.
The combination was cooled for a whole day.
After a day
No foam was produced.
Lacking color, save for a hint of orange
Condensed into a liquid (viscosity is low)
Sides get oily
There is a prominent, pungent aroma of tea tree oil.
Unable to clean
The first trial’s output was used one (1) day again later.
While the liquid was simmering, half a cup of grated soap (germ protection soap) was added.
A boil was not attempted.
We stirred it up till it was nice and toasty in there.
Set the ingredients aside to cool for a day.
result: after one (1) day
When agitated, foam develops.
The increase in viscosity is negligible.
Present in a liquefied state
There is a predominant soapy odor presently.
That’s a yellow hue
Nope, still not able to clean
Try number three
I used the peels from one orange and boiled them in 1.5 cups of water.
We cooked them for a few minutes and then removed the skins.
Incorporated 1 tbsp of white vinegar and 1 tsp of tea tree oil.
We gave it a good stir. The concoction was placed in a plastic bottle and refrigerated for a day.
After a day has passed:
Suds form when a mixture is stirred, or a sponge is applied.
The orange peels have the most prominent aroma.
Slightly off-white or yellowish
The initial test failed to produce desirable results.
It had no discernible hue save from the faint orange hue imparted by the orange peels.
Because no foaming ingredient was used, the resulting combination had poor viscosity and did not produce any suds.
The quality of the soap made is insufficient as a result.
It smelled and looked like regular water, although with a distinct note of tea tree oil.
When the mixture is stirred, the oil that had collected on the edges evaporates.
In the face of the challenge of cleaning glass of water, it fails miserably.
The odor it left behind was weak.
Different cosmetic adjustments were made to the product for the second experiment.
Because of the soap (germ protection soap), the combination has changed significantly in color and fragrance, becoming yellow in color and having a more excellent smell.
When anything is agitated or shaken, bubbles develop (when in a bottle).
With the use of soap, the viscosity has increased somewhat.
The desired outcome manifested itself on the third try.
The experimental product had a pleasant aroma, especially of orange, which was one of its selling points.
The combination now has a distinct tea tree oil aroma.
The result retained the original color and fragrance of the soap.
The researchers tested the product to determine its overall efficacy and cleaning capacity.
To test if the mixture foams, they squirted a substantial amount of it onto a sponge and compressed it.
After that, they used the concoction to scrub a plate used before in the experiment.
Products did not leave any residue on the scale after use.
In addition, there was no lingering odor from the blend.
Unfortunately, the researchers’ first two attempts yielded disappointing results, and there are a few reasons for this:
First of all, according to youngagain.org, the foaming ingredient, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, was not present.
This compound was derived from the lauric acid found in coconut oil.
2) Since the blend was chilled for an extended period, often 8-12 hours.
Put it in a spot where it will receive plenty of light.
Because it wasn’t a naturally manufactured soap but rather germ-protecting soap (e.g., Castile soap, liquid castile soap).
4) Since the components were under or over-measured.
The following contributed to the success of the third attempt:
1) Correct proportions were used for all the components.
Each ingredient’s quantity was calculated precisely, and their sizes were reasonably proportional to one another.
2) After cooling the combination for 24 hours, it was put to the test.
The desired result did not materialize in either of the first two attempts.
Their finished product does not have an orange aroma.
On the contrary, the soap’s fragrance was most noticeable.
It also doesn’t do an excellent job of cleaning and leaves an unpleasant odor in the dish.
It’s not great for manufacturing soap because it doesn’t have a foaming agent.
The failure of the first two sets of experiments may largely be attributed to inaccurate measurement.
The third attempt at experimentation resulted in a genuinely effective product.
The aroma is reminiscent of fresh oranges.
It effectively cleans, and it doesn’t leave any lingering odor.
The generated product’s quality has suffered due to the lack of precise measurement.
Using a foamy ingredient was considered but ultimately left as a backup plan while the researchers attempted to create an organic dishwashing liquid with fewer chemicals.
Based on their findings, the researchers concluded that chemicals are necessary for soap production and so should not be avoided.
Additionally, they may be used to create foam when cleaning.
Researchers failed to account for all potential substances throughout their experiments because of the following issues:
1) A fixed spending cap must be taken into account.
Two) The project cost would be high due to the high cost of certain materials.
3) Liquid Castile Soap, an essential component, is not locally produced and must be imported.
The following suggestions are offered for potential follow-up and further in-depth research based on the current investigation findings.
Other citrus fruits (lemon, calamansi, etc.) might also be used.
Their peels provide the same health benefits as oranges’.
Before attempting to create a dishwashing liquid from scratch, more knowledge must be gathered by articles other organic substances.
To boost the efficiency of the dishwashing solutions, add a foaming ingredient, such as sodium lauryl sulfate, obtained from the lauric acid in coconut oil.
It would thicken the solution and produce suds, making it more effective for washing dishes.
Since the researchers only have two (2) weeks to prepare, research, and conduct experiments, more research about this research should be done within a month to intensify the acquisition of information on other possible ingredients and materials necessary in making a dishwashing liquid and to allow plenty of time on experimenting to yield the coveted result.
To boost the mixture’s cleaning power, add borax or washing soda (if you choose).
Natural soap, such as liquid castile soap, is preferable to the antibacterial soap utilized in the studies.
Dish soap with a pleasant aroma, such as scented tea tree oil, is highly suggested.
Try substituting with other oils that are equally as important.
