spray bottleI play online Scrabble and one of the ladies who knows I like thriftyfun.com gave me an emergency tip. She ran out of Clorox Cleanup so she put 1/4 cup of Clorox in a spray bottle with 1 tablespoon of liquid laundry detergent*, she then filled the bottle with water. She says it's as good as, if not better than the product which costs about 4 bucks a bottle. This one costs pennies.

Editor's Note: Always use caution when cleaning with bleach. It can combine with other common cleaners to make a toxic gas, which can be harmful or deadly. *The original tip called for dish soap but these can sometimes include ammonia, causing toxic gases. We have adjusted the recipe to call for laundry detergent instead, which is formulated to work with bleach.

Be careful with using dish soap. A lot of the brands are made with an ammoniated process, which makes it as harmful as mixing bleach with straight ammonia. I found this out when I used dish soap with bleach.

I contacted poison control because I was having difficulty breathing. Use laundry soap. It's made to be used with bleach.
