Hygiene is a top priority for any household these days, which is why products like hand sanitizer and Lysol disinfectant spray are flying off the shelves. But you don’t need to keep buying Lysol spray every time you run out. The fact of the matter is the ingredients in Lysol are no secret, so you can make it yourself. Here’s how.

DIY Lysol Recipe

To make a DIY Lysol spray, you will need alcohol (for tips on how to pick your alcohol click the solutions news source link below), hydrogen peroxide, distilled water, and the disinfecting essential oil of your choice; you will also need a glass bottle with a spray top. This recipe works best for a 16-ounce spray bottle. Combine 3 ½ ounces of distilled water with ½ teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide in the bottle.

If you’re adding an essential oil — it’s totally up to you, but adding a disinfecting essential oil is an optional way to customize your disinfectant — you’ll want to add anywhere from 30 to 45 drops into the spray bottle. Fill the remainder of the bottle all the way to the top with the alcohol. Give it a good shake and your DIY Lysol spray should be ready for action.
