What can you do when you want to avoid exposing your children to toxic chemicals like bleach, but still kill the germs that will make them sick?
Keep white vinegar in a spray bottle, and 3% hydrogen peroxide in another (the bottle containing the hydrogen peroxide should be opaque, as it will degrade in a clear bottle).
Spray your contaminated surfaces with the vinegar and follow with hydrogen peroxide.
This lethal (to germs) combination has been shown to be as effective as chlorine bleach, killing 99% of bacteria.
You can also use distilled white vinegar to prevent mold, and use a mixture of borax and white vinegar to prevent mold from growing.
