How to make a home-made bathroom disinfectant

The benefits of a home-made cleaner are multiple. For starters, it’s a lot cheaper, more effective, using natural ingredients poses no health risks and is healthier for everyone with allergies. I took these recipes from pros themselves – a Cleaning Company called Monster Cleaning so you know they aren’t something we just made up – they really do work. I use them all the time.
