Household alcohol spray to disinfect a mattress

Why does it work?

Household alcohol is a very good disinfectant. It kills bacteria and inactivates many viruses (such as scabies).

For maximum effectiveness, it is better to choose a high degree of alcohol: 90 ° household alcohol for example.

Know that the disinfectant power of alcohol is even more powerful when it is mixed with water.

Essential oils have many virtues including antimicrobial, antiviral, insecticidal and antibacterial action.

They therefore effectively complement the action of household alcohol.

In addition, they give off a pleasant scent that spreads throughout the bedroom.
