    For what purpose? if it's for laundry, I'd recommend washing soda which is basically a more acidic version of baking soda. Works great on stains or whitening clothes like T shirts, socks, etc...Another product called Mrs Stewarts Liquid Bluing also works good to whiten white clothes. Or Oxygen based cleaners to replace bleach...like Oxiclean. Hydrogen peroxide is another alternative and kills germs.

    1. Baking soda, borax and white vinegar

    2. Ammonia. (This doesn't disinfect) It will only kill poop bacteria

    3. Lemon juice and vinegar and tea tree oil

    Vinegar

    It might not smell the best, but vinegar is a very safe alternative to bleach. With its acidic properties, vinegar is a handy cleaning product. You can put it in a spray bottle and spray it in your toilet, in your bathroom, or just dab it on a cloth or rag and use it to wipe down your surfaces. Vinegar is also a great alternative to bleach in your laundry. It’ll brighten your clothes and get rid of any soap residue. Try pouring some vinegar in your washing machine, or you can soak your clothes in a mix of vinegar and hot water.

    Borax

    Chances are you have borax somewhere around your home. If you do, it makes for a great alternative to bleach. You can mix it with your laundry powder to give your clothes an extra cleaning boost. Borax is also a handy disinfectant and cleaner. Try mixing it with water and scrubbing your dirty or grimy surfaces such as sinks and toilets.

    Lemon juice

    Citric acid is a great natural cleaner, which is why lemon juice is perfect as a replacement for bleach. Lemon juice is non-toxic and smells great! All you need to do is cut a lemon in half and rub it on the area you can want to clean such as toilets, cutting boards, trays and sinks. You can also squeeze the juice out of the lemon and mix it with water in a spray bottle. Spray it on your hard to clean areas or areas you want to disinfect such as sinks and counters.

    Tea tree oil

    Another natural alternative to bleach is tea tree oil. Known for it’s natural, fresh scent, you can use tea tree oil as a disinfectant and cleaner instead of bleach. Simply mix a few drops of the oil with warm water in a spray bottle and spray it on your floors, counter-tops, bathroom and appliances. Not only will these areas of your home scrub it cleaner, they’ll also smell great!

    Everything is a chemical. Life is just a series of chemical reactions. The universe is a giant chemistry set.

    You keep your piss in a pot until it's all turned to ammonia, and then pour it on your clothes to clean and sterilise .

    Me, I prefer to use an industrially produced cleansing agent.
