Default Who makes their own cleaning supplies?

I make laundry soap. I use vinegar in place of a plethera of other products, baking soda, and of course I use bleach often. I do other odds and ends, and lately I've been curious about making my own enzime/enzimatic cleaner. (natures miracle as an example) Obviously good for pet odors, good in laundry, and just good at any type of odor removal.

It's basically
1 cup brown sugar
3 cups citrus scraps (lemon/orange)
4 cups water
Place in liter bottle, write date, wait 3 months..........presto, enzime cleaner to use in the same way you'd use natures miracle (for pennies instead of dollars, LOL)

Anyone do this? Results to report?

I bought some stuff to make my own laundry detergent, but I haven't started yet. Still have a bottle or two to finish.

I make my own general cleaner
I just take 1 spray bottle and..
1 part white vinegar
1 part water
and a few drops lavender essential oil (I don***8217;t really measure it honestly lol)

Works really well for me. Leaves a nice light lavender smell.

and a sanitizer. It uses two bottles though!

Research shows that vinegar and hydrogen peroxide sprayed separately is ***8220;more effective at killing ***8230;Salmonella, Shigella, or E. coli bacteria than chlorine bleach or any commercially available kitchen cleaner.***8221; * they MUST be in separate containers and used one after the other (remember hydrogen peroxide has to be in dark bottle)

-Mix one part white vinegar and one part water.. put in spray bottle
-Mix one part hydrogen peroxide and one part water .. put in another spray bottle.
-Spray one after the other.
-Let dry.
That***8217;s it
