The four basics of all natural cleaning.
Did you know your pantry holds the four basics for all natural cleaning? They are baking soda, lemon juice, hydrogen peroxide and white vinegar. Along with some salt for scrubbing you have everything you need for all natural cleaning and disinfecting. Most people don't realize it, but you can replace bleach with white vinegar. It is a natural disinfectant, and it is much safer than using chlorine bleach. The fumes from chlorine bleach can trigger asthma and allergies. It also can cause second degree burns on your skin. Try using vinegar to sanitize your kitchen counters. Combined with very hot water, you can take care of most of the germs that could potentially harm your family- and keep them safe from toxic chemicals and fumes.
