Homemade Bleach Alternative // DIY cleaning disinfectant recipe

Homemade Bleach Alternative October 10, 2011 By Andrea 32 Comments When we clean our bathroom, kitchen, or laundry we certainly have expectations that must be met. We expect that mold, grime, odor, and stains all be removed, right? We especially want our clothes to smell nice and fresh. Unfortunately, we are beginning to learn that commercial product producers are using harsh, toxic chemicals in order to meet our expectations. For those of us concerned with providing for the overall health of our families, this poses a serious problem! One of those products is in fact a traditional household cleaner…bleach. This may not be a surprise to you as the harmful side effects of bleach have been known to consumers for many decades. However, it remains as one of the leading poisons found in most homes. Harmful effects of using bleach include, but are not limited to: · Irritation to the eyes · Respiratory system irritation · Throat irritation · Severe allergic reaction with skin contact There is a more natural, safe alternative. The homemade bleach alternative. Homemade Bleach Alternative - 1 ½ cup 3% hydrogen peroxide - ½ cup white vinegar or lemon juice - Pure water to fill gallon jug - 10 drops lemon or lemongrass essential oils (optional/omit if using lemon juice) Pour hydrogen peroxide, vinegar or lemon juice, and essential oils in gallon jug. Add water to fill. Cap and store.

Homemade Oxiclean

Homemade Oxiclean (yep, I use this all the time - add a little Dawn to it too to help it to stick to the clothes & let it set to soak for a while before washing like normal). ~ jane

Homemade Oxiclean - I do just want to note that hydrogen peroxide only has a short shelf of about 6 hours so this will not keep for longer periods.

Homemade Oxiclean. When you add the peroxide it is the most potent, so it would be wise to make just before you use it! More

Fabric Softener Recipes & Dryer Sheet Tips Using 1/4 cup vinegar in your laundry’s rinse cycle keeps clothes soft. You can set aside a vinegar jug just for laundry and add about 2 dozen drops of your favorite essential oil to the vinegar if you’d like (or as much EO as you feel necessary).

homemade fabric softener: The scent is light once clothes have been dried and you can increase the amount of essential oils if the fragrance isn’t strong enough for you. Ingredients: 1 cup baking soda, 1 1/4 cups warm water, 8 cups white vinegar, Essential Oils Directions: First mix the vinegar and water together then add the baking soda gradually, stirring the whole time. You will want to make sure to use a large pail to accommodate the fizzing activity from the baking soda and vinegar reaction. Use a funnel to pour this mixture into a washed, gallon sized milk jug (plastic), add 1/3 teaspoon of your favorite essential oil, cap and seal then shake well. To use: Shake each time before use, adding 1/2 to 1 cup at the start of the rinse cycle. For essential oil ideas, consider germ fighting gems like Eucalyptus or Tea Tree. If scent is what you’re after, consider lavender or even citrus favorites like orange or lemon.

DIY laundry soap & homemade soaps for teachers...

Thanks to my sister and my dear friend Becky, I will be venturing into the world of homemade cleaners. Here are three I will be trying this month. (I’ll report back on how they work for me.)  #1 DIY Laundry Detergent My sister has been telling me for months now that I need to make …

Welcome to Pinterest Tested! Ever wonder if that miracle cleaner is really miraculous? Or what about that homemade facial cleanser? Does it work? This is the place to find out!  I am testing Pins that catch my eye to see if they really live up to the claims made on Pinterest. I am excited about the test for today. It's one I've seen Pinned over and over, so I had to see if it actually works. Homemade Laundry Soap The Test: Is this recipe for laundry soap actually cheaper and does it wash clothes as well as regular detergent? I went to Wal-Mart to see if I could find all the ingredients I would need and guess what? Wal-Mart had everything and all the ingredients were even next to each other on the shelf in the detergent aisle! I was thinking I would have to hunt all over the store, but nope. All together. How nice! This is what I came home with: One box Borax One box Super Washing Soda One box Baking Soda (large size) Two small containers Oxyclean (I used store brand) Three bars Fels Naptha The total came to $16.55 including tax. Another hesitation with this project was if it was time consuming to put together. I grated the bar soap and stirred everything by hand in less than 20 minutes. It was easy! I would recommend wearing a mask (or tying a scarf around your face like I did) while mixing to avoid breathing in the dust. It made me choke a little. Or you could do as one reader posted in the comments section and dump everything into your bucket or a garbage sack and shake. Smart! So my next question was how many loads I would get out of one batch. The original post said it only takes one tablespoon per load. So I measured, oh yes I did! And I was going to do it one scoop at a time until my brilliant husband stated the obvious and had me see how many scoops were in a two-cup measuring cup and then just figure the results from there. Duh. haha. According to my calculations, I will get 462 loads from this one batch. That means the cost of this detergent is 3.6 cents per load. The detergent I was using before cost 5.3 cents per load (and it was a cheap brand that I got on sale). The original recipe says that the oxygen cleaner is optional. If you left that out, the detergent would be even cheaper...2.7 cents per load. Don't know if it would clean as well though. Now for the big question...does this stuff actually clean clothes as well as store-bought detergent? My answer is YES! I can't tell a difference from what I was using. I'll post something if I stop feeling that way after I've been using it for a few weeks. This Pin passes The Craft Patch test for sure! THE RESULTS: A homemade cleaning solution that seems to work as well as store-bought detergent. It was easy to put together and it really is cheaper. Update: I finally used the last of this soap in mid-March. That means it lasted for one year and two months! Wow! Read more about the second time I whipped up a batch of this laundry soap HERE.
