Old habits are hard to break...

I was cleaning the bathroom yesterday with my snazzy green cleaner (water, vinegar, and a dash of Dr. Bronner's) and I found myself being very careful not to get in on my hands out of habit!  I had to remind myself that I could lick the bottle and still be fine. 

And I am a COMPLETE convert now.  That stuff cleaned my faucet/sink better than any other strong product I've tried!! 

The smell was a little off-putting at first but it's better than the chemicals that can singe your nose hairs off!

 

Yes

Re: Old habits are hard to break...

  • You can mix some essential oils in with the vinegar/water solution to get a better smell. We mix lavender, jasmine, lemon and orange oil (not all at the same time).
  • I still use gloves! Just because its vinegar or other eco-friendly stuff doesn't mean I want it on my hands! Well, I don't always use gloves, but I still do for some stuff. My gloves are super snazzy, hot pink and very sturdy.

    I did have a bit of vinegar-y smell on my hands but at least I know it's not nasty chemicals that will burn my fingerprints off.  Big Smile
