A Natural Bleach Alternative - One Good Thing by Jillee
I recently got an email from La June which included the words, “I need HELP Jillee!” Well shoot, I can’t possibly ignore that! ;-) Actually what she needed help with is something I’m sure a lot of you probably deal with who live in a rural area. Not being able to use bleach in your laundry because you’re on a septic system. Specifically, La June was talking about the Miracle Whitening Solution post, which does indeed include bleach. While VERY effective…I know not everyone uses it. I looked at LOTS and LOTS of “bleach alternatives” and to be honest wasn’t extremely impressed with any of them. Mixing the two results in Peracetic Acid, which is a strong oxidizing agent used for high level disinfection. Then I came across this post from Grit.com and it made perfect sense! Here’s the recipe: 12 cups water 1/4 cup lemon juice 1 cup hydrogen peroxide Mix. I decided to test it on a pair of white pillow shams I have on my bed that were beginning to look a bit on the dingy/dirty side.
