  • Ingredients:

    ·        Water = ~ 31-32% v/v

    ·        Salt Blend (Citric Acid, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Citrate) = up to 1% v/v

    ·        Ethyl Alcohol (Ethanol) 180 proof = 29% v/v

    ·        Natural Liquid Soap = 1-2%

    ·        Hydrogen Peroxide (3%) Solution = 1% v/v

    ·        Guar Gum = < 0.10% v/v

    ·        Essential Oils = < 0.10% v/v

    ·        Aloe = <0.10%, if desired


    Add essentials for scent or additional cleaning properties; such as: Orange Oil and Lemon Oil. Essential Oils may damage surfaces if not properly mixed into the solution.

    Directions:

    1.    Mix the Water and Salt blend until dissolved

    ·        The salts are natural preservatives, but also provide additional cleansing properties to you cleanser.

    2.    Add Liquid Soap

    ·        Please refer to How I make liquid Soap for my recipe.

    ·        High Sheer mix until uniform.

    3.    Add Guar Gum

    ·        High Sheer Mix until uniform
