I have read a study done at a university (sorry, can't remember which one!) on natural disinfectant. The study says that spraying white vinegar, followed by a spray of regular old 3% hydrogen peroxide, will disinfect your counters, etc, better than straight bleach. It does not matter which you spray first, the vinegar or the peroxide. The disinfection is something like 98% - 99% effective! Happy cleaning!

Does anyone have a natural solution for repelling bedbugs? I live in an apartment complex, and apparently they have found the critters in other apartments. Thank GOODNESS not MINE. YET. My children and I are extremely sensitive to pesticides, and I refuse to have my apartment sprayed. (The management is deciding whether I will be allowed to remain). I do not know if they can FORCE me to be sprayed, but I will move before allowing this! The ironic thing is, the pesticides aren't even that effective!

to Kathy concerning the bedbug issue. On the hometrends website, they sell a few products. "sleeptight" says it is natural. I have not tried it but I will. 16oz is $16.99

I was using 7th generation for a while because I really like the fragrance of their laundry detergent. It left all my clothes kind of dingy though. I was going to throw away a lot of clothes because they looked awful- grubby like I was a trash picker. Then I switched back to regular commercial detergents and my clothes looked much better. I'm not sure if it's environmentally friendly if it makes my clothes look so bad that I want to buy new ones.

Good tips. I add some grapefruit seed extract to all my cleaners as an antimicrobial. That stuff is amazing and so versatile! Clean any surface, wash fruit, even use it as a mouthwash (diluted of course!) It's a must-have for my arsenal, haven't had a cold in years.

Great post and great tips for all to see. I personally buy my own products rather than making them.
