I love using bleach in most of my cleaning activities. I might not love the smell or how it makes my hand feel if I don't wear gloves but it gets rid of stubborn stains. This DIY bleach seems harmless and way cheaper than the one I buy and I already have all the ingredients I need to make it.

Wow, I had no idea there was a way to replace bleach! Awesome.

Not only do I hate using bleach, I hate the price! Now this is something that I can use. It will save us money and also be a great alternative to the harsh smelling chemical. With my asthma, I am really trying to cut back on all of the chemicals that we use. I never thought this would be possible, but finding this post, this is another harsh chemical I can quit using!

. Now this is something I really have to try. I hate using bleach but there are times when it seems to be the only way to go. If there is something that has the power of bleach without the harmful fumes - then I want to know about it.
