For those of us who have kids but just can’t give up all the white things (🙋🏼♀️) there is a great homemade alternative to that harsh chemical bleach! This is safe for your entire family and will help keep your whites looking and smelling “soooo fresh!” As Oakley would say it 😂
Here’s what you need!
- 3/4 cup hydrogen peroxide
-1/4 cup lemon juice
-15 drops Lemon Essential Oil
-3/4 cup baking soda
-7 cups water
Combine all ingredients in a half gallon container and shake to mix. Use 1 cup per load of laundry using hot water. If your clothes are in need of a bit more of a boost, you can soak the dirty clothes and solution in the washer overnight; add detergent and finish cleaning cycle in the morning!
- Make sure to sort the laundry before washing for best results
- It may take a few cycles to bring vibrancy back to clothes that are already stained/dingy
- Using this bleach from the beginning when you have new whites to wash will yield the best results!
- Shake before each use
