In my pursuit of cheap, non-toxic cleaning products, I found an effective alternative for bleach which can be also used on colors. I had several white blouses & linen too yellowed to ever wear in public. This formula took minutes to prepare & made my white blouses sparkle like new:
I cup hydrogen peroxide
1-1/4 cup of lemon or grapefruit juice
12 cups of water
Store in a one-gallon jug & add two cups per load of washing.
I also found this effective alternative to extremely toxic starching to iron those blouses: 1 cup of vodka (which is made from potatoes) to two cups of water in a squirt bottle.
That’s as close to “Suzy Homemaker” as I will ever get.
