Cleaning Products

First and foremost...

 

you don't need a different cleaning product for each room or task. 

Waste. Of. Money.

Soap Bubbles

Less is More

 

The Lineup 

 

All you need is 3 things (really)...

1. A diluted soap product

2. Grit for scrubbing

3. A Sanitizer 

This is what I use:

1/2 teaspoon of liquid soap (I use Dr. Bronner's Sal Suds)

with 16 oz. filtered (or distilled if you prefer) water in a spray bottle.

 

For "grit", baking soda or Bon Ami Powder Cleanser

For sanitizing, white vinegar diluted 1:1 in a spray bottle

with a DROP of liquid soap.

You can add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil here to cut the acridity a bit.

That's it! All the rest is foo-foo. Period.


 

All 3 of these "products" are multi-taskers.

They are also made with ingredients that can be used for other things like...food.

except the liquid soap...unless you like to eat soap.

No judgement here.

Saving you money AND space!


 

 

A Note about Disinfectants


 

Since Covid, many are jittery about disinfection.

Some are jittery about disinfection anyway,

but germs, bacteria, dirt, and even viruses are part of our world and always have been.

Exposure to them is how and why we have immune systems and should, in general*, not be feared.

 

I will be very plain here, unless someone in your home is currently or recently "infected"

with a contagious illness, you do not need to "dis-infect" anything.

Not even your toilet.

Yes, I know...toilets are gross. You don't have to tell ME that...I've stuck my ungloved hands into thousands of them. Product manufacturers use the term "disinfectant" to get you to buy their products.

 

You don't need them, truly.

 

There is such a thing as "too clean" and completely sterile environments are really only required in like...hospitals.

 

I go more in depth on sanitizing versus disinfecting on this blog.
