green works

So, here we are with a 7-week old baby, a potty training 3-year-old, and a condo "on the market". Yes, we're crazy. Many women take a break from housecleaning at least to some extent when a newborn joins the family. Well, with the condo for sale, I don't have that luxury. In fact, I have an urge for my house to be cleaner (especially the bathrooms) than it might otherwise be under normal circumstances -- strangers are coming to my house! However, with the little baby around, I've gotten a little more concerned about what cleaning fumes are in my house.

Lately, I've stumbled upon a new line of cleaners from Clorox called "green works". True to their name, they are made from natural ingredients do a great job cleaning! (My toilet has never been so clean!) Plus, they smell wonderful...so much better than the chemically & fake smells of traditional cleaners. Unfortunately, they do not disinfect yet but hope to add disinfecting products to the line in the future. I don't know how widespread their availability is since I found them in only one of four stores that I checked in town. But, I recommend giving them a try if you find them in a store near you. I paid $3.50/bottle and I think it's worth every penny. You can go here for more information about them.

I bought a bottle of the bathroom cleaner a few weeks ago. I don't think I knew it didn't disinfect. Bummer. I need to be able to kill the cooties!

Walmart carries it....

Yeah, I was wondering what to do about the sanitizing aspect. I just heard a commercial for "Clorox Anywhere Hard Surface Daily Sanitizing Spray." I think they used to use this at Ella's Kindermusik classes to kill the germs on the instruments. Clorox touts it as "gentle enough to use around kids and food" and says it kills 99.9% of bacteria (E. coli, Salmonella, Staphylococcus and Streptococcus) AND leaves no harmful chemical residue. If I can find it, I just may pick up a bottle to "kill the cooties" when needed.
