When COVID-19 hit and the cleaning product supply had run dangerously low, we struggled to find a non-toxic cleaner that was safe for my family and I. We quickly began experimenting with a couple ingredients to create a cleaner, more sustainable disinfectant. This universal cleaning solution became a favorite when it came to cleaning and disinfecting our fitness gear.
This DIY disinfectant is great for removing germs, odors, viruses and is as efficacious as a store-bought cleaner. The ingredients below have been celebrated for decades due to its antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.
