DIY Bleach

I finally got the photo from computer-land of what you will need to make recipe.  It only took 24 hr for computer-land to spit it out.

Today we are going to make our own bleach.  That’s right, you can make your own for a lot less  than the stuff you buy in town and this recipe will not make you cough and hack.

It is an easy, quick recipe and works great.  I found this on the internet several years ago.  I can’t remember the site.  If anyone knows, please let me know I will give them credit. By the way, there are hundreds of recipes for bleach on the internet, this is the one I use.


3 cups of hydrogen peroxide (big box store has      this cheap)

3 cups of water

3 Tablespoons of citric acid.  (I use food grade because that is what I have on hand)

Mix all together, place in a DARK BOTTLE, MUST BE DARK, as hydrogen peroxide losses its strength when exposed to light. Use as you would bleach. Just as you would with manufactured Clorox, Do Not mix anything with product( such as ammonia),  I don’t know what chemical reaction it would produce.

Yes, it will bleach out color in color clothes. I have spots on a pair of jeans.


Now for the legal stuff:  This recipe has not been approved by any gov agency, FDA, scientist, etc.  Make and use at your own risk.
