Proper Kitchen Cleaning for Cold, Flu, and Virus Season

Sanitizing your kitchen is one of the best ways to help prevent H1N1 at home.  Kitchen counters have always been a breeding ground for germs.  With frequent snacking and hand-to-mouth activities in the kitchen, the risk of spreading bacteria increases.

Wipe down counters, kitchen tables, refrigerator and dishwasher handles, and any other commonly touched areas with a non-toxic, natural, homemade disinfectant cleaner. 

Mix 2 teaspoons borax, 4 tablespoons vinegar, and 3 cups hot water.  For stronger cleaning power, add 1/4 teaspoon liquid castile soap.  Wipe on with a damp cloth or use a non-aerosol spray bottle.
