Thank you so much! I am going to try yours first. Hopefully it works for me too. :)

Hi Amanda!


We moved the stain remover (hydrogen peroxide + Dawn)
into this container.

I've continued to use the bathroom cleaner as is, and truthfully, it has worked really well! This site has good recommendations for using vinegar apart from baking soda in the bathroom. It requires more steps, but if you're looking to use the two seperately, it's a good resource.


Good luck!

I was just wondering if you ever resloved the issues that Annie pointed out:

"Two issues. The amount of vinegar in the bathroom cleaner would neutralize the baking soda.

Also It's  important to keep hydrogen peroxide out of light, which is why it comes in the dark bottles. So as much as your clear bottles are pretty, in this case it's not a good idea."

I would really like to start making home-made cleaners. Just wonder if these work though.

Hi Annie! Thanks so much for the feedback and recommendations. What's your recommendation for combining vinegar and baking soda? Or, do you recommend not combining the two at all?

I do like your labels though and do a lot of cleaning with vinegar and baking soda ( not mixe together) myself.
