Clean, sick, clean, sick, clean, sick

I'm trying to be productive today with just one sick kid at home and feeling under the weather myself. It's times like these when I break out into a full-sterilizing frenzy as if I'm ever going to find the culprit for the downfall of our health THIS time....either way, thought this might be of interest to those of you still devoted to Clorox...Thanks to 5 Minutes for Going Green.

Bleach doesn't clean, it removes stains and kills everything. So clean with good old hot water and soap, or an eco-friendly all purpose cleaner. For stain removal what you use depends on the stain, but hydrogen peroxide is a pretty good bet for most stains you will encounter on a daily basis.

Vinegar Of Four Thieves is a great natural disinfectant that even was shown in tests to kill MRSA! Plain old vinegar disinfects too, and guess what, so does hot water and soap!

Here is a recipe to make your own disinfectant:

Grapefruit Seed Extract
1 gallon warm water
20 drops grapefruit seed extract
Mix and pour in a spray bottle

Cleaning Mold:
Tea tree oil will kill even toxic molds! Just use 2 teaspoons tea tree oil mixed with 2 cups water.

The above grapefruit seed extract recipe about will also kill mold, and vinegar does, too.
