Homemade Bleach

Hate the strong smell of bleach? I do. I especially hate it when it makes my sinuses burn and eyes water. I recently came upon a Pinterest pin about making your own homemade bleach from the Crafty Little Gnome blog.While the homemade version doesn't have the same chemical compounds as traditional bleach, it cleans and disinfects. 

To make your own bleach, you need:
  • 1 cup Hydrogen Peroxide
  • 3 tablespoons Lemon Juice
  • 15 cups Water
Yes, that's 15 cups of H2O (not 1.5 cups). Since the hydrogen peroxide loses its potency after a few weeks, I suggest that you make smaller batches of the "bleach" if you don't plan to use it quickly.

What homemade cleaning products do you make?
