4 Ways To Use Hydrogen Peroxide To Clean Your Home

Hydrogen peroxide is one of the most powerful natural ingredients you can use to clean your home. It’s even more effective than vinegar – and we all know that vinegar has become the natural ingredient everyone uses and swears by.

I, however, don’t really like vinegar. I have never liked it due to that terrible smell but I wanted to get into making my own cleaners so I had to find an alternative to vinegar.

I Make An All-Purpose Cleaner

I love this recipe and I have been using it for over a year. Most homemade all-purpose cleaners contain vinegar but this one has hydrogen peroxide in it!

I fill a spray bottle with 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide, a cup of water, and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice.

And just like that I have an all-purpose cleaner that is powerful yet can be used on any surface in a home!

The Best Bleach Alternative

Sometimes I use bleach to whiten my clothes but I wanted to find an alternative because I don’t like how toxic bleach is.

Now, in order to whiten my clothes, I just mix a cup of hydrogen peroxide with 1/2 cup of baking soda, 1/4 cup of lemon juice, a few drops of lavender essential oil, and 8 cups of water (yes, you need to dilute the hydrogen peroxide in order to avoid damage on your clothes).

I Make A Floor Cleaner

The next amazing recipe I will share with you is about a floor cleaner – one that doesn’t have vinegar in it which makes it safe to use on just about any floor.

Mix equal parts of water and hydrogen peroxide in a bucket. That’s all you need to do. Dip your mop in the mixture and start cleaning. Not only will your floors be clean but disinfected as well!

I Clean My Toilet With It

If you want to clean and disinfect your toilet then mix equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water in a spray bottle and use it as a cleaner.
