27. Bleach Gel
Make a bottle of Diy bleach gel to keep in your laundry. Make a second one to keep in your bathroom to fix yucky grout.  
Note - The original source, (Me and My DIY) is no longer available but I have included the instructions below.

¾ cup water
3 Tbsp corn starch
4-7 Tbsp household bleach

Instructions: Mix water and corn starch together in a small pan. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously until mixture becomes translucent and pudding-like. Let cool. If you need to make it more than a few hours ahead of time, cover the pot with plastic wrap so it won't dry out. Start adding bleach by the Tbsp, until you have the consistency and strength you desire. Gel will thin a little bit after sitting. Use as you would regular bleach gel.

28. Use rubbing alcohol to clean the kitchen
Rubbing alcohol gets rid of grease and soap scum. {via}

29. Diy disinfectant wipes
You can make your own cleaning wipes with vinegar and a role of paper towels. {via}

30. Disinfect your toilet brush.
Pour cleaner into your toilet brush storage container to disinfect it between uses. {via}
