This all-purpose cleaner is very suitable for people who have asthma triggered by strong-smelling cleaning products, as the only odour it has, is from the castile soap you have used. Here is how to make this simple natural all-purpose cleaner on your own.
It doesn’t require muck effort or time to make your own natural all-purpose cleaner. By making a homemade green cleaner you not only preserve the environment toxic- free but also save some money that you can spend later on more enjoyable things than cleaning supplies. For the all-purpose cleaner suggested in this article, you will need hydrogen peroxide and castile soap. The hydrogen peroxide is an odourless disinfectant that will help in removing mould and other health-threatening bacteria and germs. This all-purpose cleaner is very suitable for people who have asthma triggered by strong-smelling cleaning products, as the only odour it has, is from the castile soap you have used. Here is how to make this simple natural all-purpose cleaner on your own.
- Pour plain tap water in an empty spray bottle, so the bottle is almost full. You can either use a brand-new spray bottle purchased from any grocery store or an old one that you have thoroughly cleaned out. Do not use a bottle that still has some original cleaner in it, as recommended by cleaners Angel. Use a permanent marker to label the bottle, so you don’t mess it up with another cleaner.
- Add 2 tablespoon of 3-percent hydrogen peroxide to the spray bottle. Close the lid of the bottle, and thoroughly shake to mix the ingredients.
- Open the spray bottle and add 1 tablespoon of castile soap to the solution. Close and shake well.
- Use this all-purpose cleaner as you would any other store-bought cleaner. Simply spray the desired area with it and wipe clean using a sponge or cloth. This cleaner can even be used to clean chopping boards and food prep areas, just rinse the chopping board with plain water afterwards.
- If this all-purpose cleaner fails to handle some mouldy area, use straight hydrogen peroxide to deal with the problem.
Keep in mind that the hydrogen peroxide is also a bleaching agent, so be careful when using this solution. It would be best to test it first on a small, hidden area before applying it to a larger one, according to cleaners Beckton.
