It's important to keep our homes clean and disinfected to stay healthy and prevent the spread of germs. But you don't need to rely on harsh chemicals to do so. You can make your own natural disinfecting spray and we will show you how.
Option 1: Percarbonate Spray
Sodium percarbonate can be used to make a powerful disinfecting spray. To do so, mix a tablespoon of sodium percarbonate powder with warm water in a spray bottle. You can add a few drops of essential oils for a pleasant scent, but they are not necessary for disinfection. Shake the bottle to mix the solution and it's ready to use.
This disinfecting spray is effective against a wide range of bacteria and viruses, making it a great natural alternative to commercial disinfectants. It's also safe to use on most surfaces, including kitchen counters, bathroom fixtures, and toys.
Option 2: Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen peroxide is a hospital grade disinfectant can be used as a simple and effective disinfecting spray. Use 3% or 6% hydrogen peroxide that you can find in supermarkets or pharmacies.
You can use this solution to disinfect various surfaces in your home, including kitchen counters, doorknobs, and bathroom fixtures. Let the solution sit on the surface for a few minutes before wiping it away with a clean cloth or paper towel.
Option 3: Alcohol
Alcohol is a powerful disinfectant that can kill a wide range of germs and bacteria. To make an alcohol-based disinfecting spray, mix 2/3 cup of 99% isopropyl alcohol with 1/3 cup of distilled water in a spray bottle. Shake the bottle well to combine the ingredients. You can also add a few drops of essential oil for a pleasant scent. Spray the solution onto surfaces and let it sit for at least 30 seconds before wiping it off with a clean cloth or paper towel. It's important to note that alcohol can be harsh on some surfaces, so it's best to test it on a small area first.
Note: Isopropyl Alcohol is a petroleum based product which is not ideal, but still a better alternative to other commercial disinfectants using chlorine bleach.
Remember to be safe and always label your spray bottle and keep out of reach of children.
