Yet, the good old-fashioned bleach can get down and dirty with everything. Bleach is good for the washing machine. It can be used for cleaning the entire home in fact!

Bleach can clean it all within the kitchen. Mix ½ cup of bleach with a gallon of water. Use this cleaning mixture to disinfect the countertops, sinks, tiles, floors, refrigerator, stainless steel appliances, and other hard, non-porous surfaces (glass, plastics, metals, and varnished wood).
For plastic items, such as trash cans, mix ½ cup of bleach and ¾ gallon of water. Cutting boards can be cleaned with bleach as well. It will require a more diluted solution: mix 2 teaspoons of bleach with 1 gallon of water
From floor to ceiling, to counters to toilets and more, bleach can be used to deep-clean the bacteria right out of the bathrooms. You can easily save your plastic shower curtain from mildewed by tossing it into the washing machine with detergent and 2/3 cup of bleach to get it clean and prevent any new mold. Clean those plastic bath toys as well with a mix of ½ cup of bleach and 1 gallon of water. Let the toys soak for five minutes and then rinse well to remove all the bleach. For a deep clean on your tiles mix ¾ cup of bleach with 1 galloon of warm water. Wipe down the surfaces and let it sit for 10 minutes before rinsing with more warm water.
