Sooooo, we’re currently nine months in, and it doesn’t look like this thing is going away any time soon. And by thing, I mean that thing that rhymes with TOVID 😝 Here’s what I’ve used to make a disinfectant spray when I haven’t been able to get my hands on isopropyl alcohol for this other Lysol recipe. And it’s still compliant with the CDC’s guidelines, hurrah! Here’s how to make your own Lysol. Can you believe it’s only a 2 ingredient recipe?! Please enjoy.
