Homemade Bleach.. Ingredients: 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.

uses: HYDROGEN PEROXIDE to get rid of armpit stains, to clean cookie sheets, as a miracle cleaner in my kitchen and bathroom, and to make my own “oxi clean”…I ALWAYS have at least one bottle of the stuff under my kitchen sink, under my bathroom sink, AND in the laundry room. This stuff is amazingly versatile!

Well, I wonder!?! ~ Mix one part Dawn dishwashing liquid with two parts hydrogen peroxide; pour or spray it directly on the stain, and watch it disappear like MAGIC.... hmmm , worth a try!

Tips for cleaning with hydrogen peroxide - Ask Anna

Hydrogen Peroxide--More Tips Tip #1 - A Better Spray Bottle Solution Because HP becomes ineffective when it is exposed to light (that's why it comes in a dark brown bottle), I recommended storing your HP in a cabinet where it is dark. Tip #2 - Laundry Stain Removal. If you ever get blood on clothing, especially denim, it's amazing how hydrogen peroxide works to get out the stain." Add 1 cup of HP instead of bleach to your whites to whiten them.

    If there is blood on clothing, apply HP directly to the spot, let it sit a minute, rinse with cold water. Repeat if necessary. Since it's hard to know which fabrics will "bleach" from the HP and which won't, I'm playing it safe and only using it on whites. Tip #3 - Sanitizing Cutting Boards Here's a tip I just learned for sanitizing cutting boards with HP to kill salmonella and other bacteria. Rinse off the cutting board with water, pour or spray HP on the cutting board, let it sit a few minutes, rinse it off with water. Clean as a whistle.
