    Here's a antibacterial recipe that I use and it works wonders. I use it to clean, disinfect, and treat orchids for pest, fungi and bacteria.

    2 cups warmish water
    8-10 drops dish soap
    1.8 ml of cinnamon extract
    Adjust ingredients as needed


    You can put this in a spray bottle and spray your orchids with it. Makes them smell nice too.

    It doesn't hurt the roots or leaves and it kills all bacteria. If you treat with peroxide and the with the soap recipe, it's like a double punch.
