This is from the blog http://thankyourbody.com/whiten-clothes-naturally-homemade-bleach/

 

 Homemade “Bleach” Recipe

Ingredients:

– 1 ½ cup 3% hydrogen peroxide
– ½ cup lemon juice
– Distilled water to fill a gallon jug
– 10 – 12 drops lemon essential oil (I bet this is optional)

Instructions:

1. Mix all ingredients together in gallon jug. Gently shake to combine.

2. Use one cup of homemade bleach in your washing cycle to whiten clothes.

This sounds like a good option for those allergic to chlorine!

I so agree and am going to give it a try to clean my bathroom, too.

Did it work for the bathroom too?

I sure haven’t tried it yet, but I’ll let you know as soon as I do. :-)

Instead of bleaching is there any other option for cleaning white clothes, bleaching powder can clean the stain but clothes may get thinner.

Original blue Dawn Dishwashing liquid is really good at getting grease stains out.  You can mix 1 part Dawn with 1 part hydrogen peroxide, rub into stain and let set. Then launder as usual.
