Step 6: Hydrogen Peroxide Spray

For those of you who are worried about vinegar not being a strong enough disinfectant, a final spray of hydrogen peroxide should assure you that your bathroom is really, really clean. Or use my favorite: Thieves household cleaner from Young Living. Once diluted, it’s even cheaper per bottle than peroxide.

  • look for 3% hydrogen peroxide (easy to find at drugstores) and pour this at full strength into a clean new spray bottle.
  • purchase Thieves household cleaner wholesale from Young Living and mix with water as instructed on the bottle, to medium dilution.
  • after your bathroom fixtures have dried completely of the cleaning solutions you used, spray them with the hydrogen peroxide.
  • allow to dry without wiping it.

  1. How do you clean the shower? I have a hard time with “orange sherbert” slime that grows in my showers. I scrub them regularly, but it always grows back. I’d love to be able to kill whatever it is that is growing. I will give the hydrogen peroxide a try after I scrub it down this week. How about the water spots on clear glass shower doors and walls? Any tips for that? If I use vinegar each week, maybe that would help?

    1. Let us know if the Hydrogen Peroxide works for the orange slime! On water deposits on glass, I think it is helpful to squeegee daily after showering, but once it’s built up, I think baking soda or Bon Ami works better than vinegar. ~BD

  2. Hi Bronwyn;

    One thing we have been doing when we have serious illness afoot is to spray with diluted rubbing alcohol mixed with lemongrass . We had a pretty serious outbreak of staph this summer, and I was using strong cleaners. It seems the lemongrass does kill staph and yeasts, and it smells good too. I would consider adding this to anything natural that you use to clean as staph is pretty prolific and you can really get hit hard with it if you are not cleaning with strong effective stuff like bleach, as toxic as it might be:)

    1. Thanks for the tip! What is your recipe: are you diluting the rubbing alcohol with water, and to what concentration? Are you using lemongrass essential oil, or something else? ~BD

  3. I have been told that Peroxide needs to be stored in a dark container (that’s why it’s sold in a brown bottle) to remain effective. Remember that when putting into a spray bottle.
    I just stick a spray bottle top into my Peroxide bottle. It screws on great and is easier than pouring it into another container.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, Katie! That is a great idea to use the brown bottle with the spray lid. And thanks for the info on keeping it out of the light.
