Information and Recipes for Cleaning Our Homes with Sustainable Cleansers
Antibacterials. Alcohol and hydrogenperoxide are good antibacterials as they killall bacteria, then evaporate. They do not linger on surfaces, possibly causingsuperbugs.
Tricosolin,found in many antibacterial soaps and cleansers, is another story.
Thebest clean hands and bodies come from soap and hot water rather than hand washwith alcohol or triclosan.
And, of course, there are those of us who believethat we need to build up an immunity to germs and bacterium since we can neverreally totally disinfect our homes..
That said, we do need to be careful of theremnants of animal foods. They can be particularly nasty.
As forour runny nose–Maybe we did acquire a cold from the guy standing in the grocerystore line behind us, or our cashier who kept sniffing while checking out ourgroceries. But it is just as likely that we developed allergies from our carpet,our shining homes or the superbugs remaining on our germ-free countertops.
