Bleach is often the go-to product when it comes to disinfecting around the house. Whether you want to disinfect your toilet and bathroom, clean your cutting boards or scrub your bathtub, chlorine bleach will clean and sanitize the surfaces. Bleach is a harsh cleaning product, however, so some people may be looking for a more eco-friendly way to disinfect. All you need are two products to safely disinfect just about any surface in your home.
Things You'll Need
- Borax powder
Fill a bucket with ½ gallon hot water. Add ¼ cup borax powder. You can find borax in the laundry aisle of most grocery stores.
Mix up the borax and water until the powder dissolves. Use this solution to disinfect floors, countertops, toilets, bathtubs, baseboards, walls and most other surfaces in the home where you would otherwise use chlorine bleach.
Spray the mixture onto the surface and wipe it up with a clean rag.
