We use vinegar in one bottle and peroxide in another for cleaning surfaces in our kitchen. Right now neither are diluted....should they be? Should we be doing a 50-50 with water in each bottle? Does it matter?

For proven DISINFECTING qualities.....you have to use a 100% vinegar spray, followed by a 100% peroxide spray (w/o wiping in between).

For general cleaning I think a 50/50 of vinegar and water is common.

No dilution for disinfection. Just one then the other, full strength.
GOsh I LOVE this method!!!
