I've come to the conclusion that you can make pretty much anything you can buy from the store. This is especially true with cleaning products. In the past I have shared my recipes for laundry detergent and dishwasher detergent, today I'm going to share my recipe for bleach. We usually have a jug of bleach under the kitchen sink at all times but truthfully I don't really like to use it. Not only is chlorine bleach a super harsh chemical but the fumes really bother me too. I showed you how to reverse tie dye with bleach in the past so yes, I do use bleach occasionally but when it comes to cleaning I prefer my own homemade version better.
1 cup hydrogen perioxide
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
15 cups of water
Mix together and store in a large jug. I pour mine into a smaller bottles for convenience. Since the peroxide will oxidize and eventually loose strength it's best to use the homemade bleach within a month.
This bleach is great for cleaning bathrooms.
Do you have any favorite homemade cleaning recipes?
