A while back I noticed a lot of advertisements for Clorox Sanitizing Spray. The product makes these claims:
- Gentle enough to use around kids and food
- Kills 99.9% of bacteria: E. coli, Salmonella, Staphylococcus (Staph.) and Streptococcus (Strep.)
- Leaves no harmful chemical residue
When I examined the ingredients, I noticed that bleach comprises 0.009% of the total volume and it claims to be “gentle as water”.
So I says to myself, maybe partially out loud, “Smockity, you, your very self, know of a substance right in your own home that is as gentle as water.”
“And furthermore, Self, that safe and gentle substance is right simple to obtain. Why, you might even say it is as simple as turning on the faucet. And, let’s say you found an empty spray bottle and filled it up with that easy to obtain, gentle substance and then add 1/4 tsp. of gen-yoo-wine Clorox Bleach.”
“Then, with a permanent marker you write ‘HOMEMADE CLOROX SANITIZING SPRAY‘. Well, you’d have a product of your own making that people would pay upwards of $3.29 for at the Piggly Wiggly.”
So that’s exactly what I did.
And then I shouted “Jubilation” and “Land O’ Goshen! I’ll be rich!” but I realized that didn’t make any sense, mostly because my children had gathered around me in a semi circle and were staring at me in gape-mouthed confusion.
Okay… where was I going with this story?
Oh! Right! And it “Works For Me” every day, especially in the kitchen and bathrooms.
