I changed the recipe slightly since the original called for combining Dish Detergent with Bleach and that is a big No-No. For some reason, many Dish Detergents contain Ammonia, and combining Bleach with Ammonia can literally kill you with a toxic fume. YIKES!
It's best to stick with chemicals that you know are OK to combine, like Laundry Detergent and Bleach. Those are made to go together in the washing machine!
Fake Clorox Cleanup
1 Empty and Rinsed-Out Bottle of Clorox Cleanup/Empty Plastic Spray Bottle
1/4 Cup Bleach
1 Teaspoon Laundry Detergent
Fill the rest of the bottle with Water and Shake!
Just like my other Fake Cleaners, this one is mostly water, too. Doesn't it just make you crazy that we are all paying too much money for what is mostly water?
