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.
