Homemade disinfectant cleaner is easy to make with simple ingredients like isopropyl alcohol and vinegar. And fun to do at home when you want to have a DIY project.
While hand washing is still the best way to eliminate most germs from hands, you can make your own disinfectant spray that contains at least 60% alcohol to clean and sanitize surfaces in your home.
This all purpose natural cleaner can be used throughout the home; in the kitchen, bathrooms, the kid’s playrooms and is great for the car, too.
Add essential oils for a more pleasant cleaning solution. You can add the blend you want but I have included a great essential oils blend below in the directions.
And I have included a cute PDF file for stickers or labels that you can print and use! Just click on the link above and it will bring up a file that you can print or save until you are ready to use it.
