We've all been there, we need bleach and either can't or don't have time to run to the store. So what can you do? Here is a simple homemade recipe for when you are in a pinch and need the strength of bleach to do a household chore or laundry.
Use the mixture within one months time for best results. As the peroxide looses its fizzle, it will become less effective. This will bleach out colored items just like store bought bleach so be careful not to spill in on anything :)
1 CUP HYDROGEN PEROXIDE ( Dollar store brand was used)
2 TBS LEMON JUICE
15 CUPS WATER
Use an empty bleach container and funnel into it 1 cup hydrogen peroxide ( half a bottle). Next add 2 TBS of Lemon Juice. Lastly fill up the container the rest of the way with water (approx 15 cups). There ya go! You made a gallon of bleach for about 55cents ( 50 cents worth of peroxide and 5 cents worth of Lemon Juice)!
Keep clean ya'll!
