Bleach is SO bad for our health but I like my whites white when I do laundry. And sometimes you just want a little extra cleaning power when working on really gross things (like the dirty inside of your dishwasher – how does that get so gross?!). What’s a girl to do??? Make her own, non-toxic and chemical free bleach that does the job AND smells delicious. Who doesn’t love the smell of lemons?! Bonus…it is ridiculously easy to make. You’re welcome. 🙂
What you’ll need:
1 gallon jug
1 1/2 cups of 3% hydrogen peroxide
1/2 cup lemon juice
10-12 drops of Young Living lemon essential oil
- In a gallon jug mix the hydrogen peroxide and lemon juice.
- Add enough distilled water to fill the jug.
- Add 10-12 drops of lemon essential oil.
- Gently shake to combine. Then pour into a GLASS bottle to store. (Due to the nature of citrus oils it will eat away at the plastic if you store in plastic and not glass. Where does that plastic go? Right into your bleach. Besides, plastic isn’t good for you anyway and these glass bottle are so much cuter! :-))
