Natural Homemade Cleaners: Herbal Antibacterial Disinfectant

| March/April 2002

This herbal antibacterial disinfectant is better and safer than the popular antibacterial cleaners on the market today. It is ideal for kitchens and bathrooms and can be stored indefinitely.

  • 2 tablespoons borax
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 20 drops tea tree essential oil (Melaleuca alternifolia)
  1. Combine the borax and lemon juice with the water in a spray bottle. Cap and shake well to dissolve the mineral.
  2. Add the tea tree oil and shake again to disperse the oil. Use as you would any commercial all-purpose cleaner.
