Old Fashioned Green Cleaning
There is a lot of talk and marketing hype out there these days regarding Green Cleaning and saving the environment, but did you know that your great-grandmother used "green cleaning" all the time? If your great-grandmother or possibly great-great-grandmother lived just after or during the civil war she probably used Hydrogen Peroxide for just about everything.
Plan old hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) found in your local pharmacy or grocery store, at less than two dollars a bottle, is useful in amazing ways and can completely replace smelly chemicals such as chlorine bleach.
Historically, chlorine bleach was developed as part of the military chemical weapon arsenal in the 1940s before WWII - the wonderful time period that also gave us petro-chemical pesticides, that later developed into a nerve gas and plastics. Hydrogen peroxide, on the other hand, was used during the civil war as a field antiseptic and was a common ingredient in most homes. Every spring your ancestors would wash the floors and walls with hydrogen peroxide to kill any germs left by old man winter.
Any kind of decontamination that chlorine bleach can might come to mind for, may be more healthful and safely done with H2O2; for it can fulfill many cleaning, sanitizing, and also body and wound detoxification purposes. You can even use it as a daily mouth wash - just never swallow it. It naturally kills the harmful bacteria in your mouth that causes gum disease and tooth decay. It also helps to naturally whiten your teeth.
Anywhere you consider chlorine bleach, including the laundry, or another sanitizing cleaner, try non-toxic hydrogen peroxide instead. You might be surprised what cleaning compounds you can do without and the money you may save in the process.
