DIY Non-Toxic Germ Killing Spray - Becca Piastrelli

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

I've received several requests to post a bit more about DIY, non-toxic cleaning products, so I thought I could make today's post about an easy, germ killing spray you can make at home.

Hydrogen peroxide is completely safe to use, odorless and non-toxic. It kills 99% of germs - I'll take that over bleach.

measuring ingredients for germ spray


1 cup Hydrogen Peroxide

1/2 cup water

1 sprayer

mixing germ killing spray

Combine the ingredients into a glass measuring cup, and pour into your sprayer. I'm not using the most ideal sprayer in these photos, as hydrogen peroxide is light-sensitive. I recommend a more opaque sprayer to preserve the solution.

  Once week (especially during cold season), I spray all the commonly touched places in our apartment.

Places like doorknobs, cabinet and fridge handles, countertops, and light switches.

Do you have any other DIY cleaning recipes to share? On Friday, I'll share another favorite of mine!
