The ingredients you will need are two cups of water, one cup of hydrogen peroxide, and a quarter of a cup of lemon juice. Simply mix them together and use. Feel free to add more or less lemon, or add some eucalyptus for a healthy and fresh scent. The peroxide is the primary cleaning agent, and due to its use as a wound cleaner, its safe for just about anything. Youll want to keep in mind that it can lighten colors in the same way that bleach does, but thats only relevant if you will be using it around fabrics.
