A mix of chlorine bleach and water is an effective household disinfectant (and it’s cheap too!), but the bleach is pretty harsh on fabrics, skin and the environment (and a bit stinky too). The good news is that you can still make homemade bacteria busters using fresh or dried herbs, essential oils, vinegar and other basic items you likely have in your home already. These will not only fight germs and bacteria, but most also smell a lot fresher too.

The gal over at Potholes & Pantyhose is pretty savvy and makes her own Dishwasher Detergent - the BEST thing of all is that it is using ingredients that you probably already have at home (or are quite easy to find at your local market). So head on over and give her blog a whirl - You'll be glad you did! LINK

WHAT YOU NEED
White distilled vinegar
Airtight glass container
1. Mix equal parts water and vinegar. Add a couple drops of olive oil.
2. Soak rags in the solution until fully saturated. I used old dishcloths that I cut into fourths with pinking shears.
3. Wring out the rags leaving them just damp.
4. Lay the rags, and place a couple lemon rinds on each cloth.
5. Roll or fold the rinds into each cloth, and place into your glass container. Add an extra lemon peel, and make sure lid is tight. Store until needed.
Additional notes: Once used, wash or boil the dust cloths and repeat the steps above for a new batch!
