Bacteria and viruses are a real threat in today’s world. When choosing how to disinfect and sanitize your home, it’s essential to weigh the risks and benefits of any products before using them.
Just take a peek down the cleaning aisles at your local store. So many products claim to kill 99% of bacteria and viruses on contact. While it may seem like that’s the whole point of cleaning, killing off all bacteria is like throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
Without good bacteria, you are actually more likely to get sick! Helpful bacteria support immune function and control inflammation. Yet some of the chemicals used to kill the harmful germs have no regard for the healthy bacteria that keeps your body working at peak performance.
Green cleaning is effective and simplifies your supplies.
The last few years have taught us that proactively protecting ourselves can go a long way toward preventing the spread of illness. However, when using natural products, one of the most common concerns is — “Will a natural product really get the job done?”
The short answer is yes. You can protect your family from yucky germs without breaking out the bleach and other harmful chemicals.
The truth is, you really don’t need a separate product for every single task. By whipping up a natural all-purpose disinfectant, you can lighten the load in your cleaning bucket!
You may be surprised to find that you already have what you need on hand.
