The trick is to keep the two substances in separate bottles.
Warning: If you mix them together beforehand, not only does it lose it's effectiveness as a disinfectant, but it produces peracetic acid which is not something you want around. Therefore, DO NOT mix them together in the same bottle.
Note: You can actually do steps 1 & 2 in any order. However, I like spraying the hydrogen peroxide first because it can help me spot the worst places when it bubbles.
This works great in the bathroom and is totally non-toxic. I have even killed mold with it successfully.

Thank you! This is new, and deeply appreciated cleaning wisdom to me. Heretofore, I had been using both fluids, but separately, for different cleaning purposes. Henceforth, I shall use both fluids as you have suggested, expecting great results. Again, thank you!
Wow! I looked this stuff up. It is more powerful than straight bleach, but breaks down in water to benign chemicals in the environment. I will definately keep this in my arsenal.
