How To Make A Natural Disinfectant

Hi Everyone!! This article will share How To Make A Natural Disinfectant.

Many cleaning products are made with hazardous chemicals which can cause skin irritations, respiratory problems, etc. So, now is the time to ditch these chemical sprays in favor of the safer alternatives that can be easily prepared at home using some natural ingredients. With such natural disinfectants, keep your home spick-and-span and that is just at a fraction of the cost of those harsh chemical cleaners.

How To Make A Natural Disinfectant

1. Vinegar-Based Disinfectant Spray

Material Required

  • White vinegar
  • Water
  • Essential oil (of your choice)
  • Glass spray bottle

What All You Need To Do

  • In a glass bottle, add vinegar and water in the ratio of 1:1.
  • Now, add 7-8 drops of essential oil and check if you are ok with the scent else add a few more drops.
  • Give the bottle a good shake and the natural disinfectant is ready to use.

If you are making disinfectant for the kitchen then, you can go for the lemon essential oil to neutralize a strong kitchen smell. For neutralizing bathroom odours, you can try Tea tree oil and for your bedroom or living area, you can try milder smelling essential oils such as chamomile or vanilla. It is recommended to use glass bottles as essential oils can sometimes react with plastic.
