A: Yes, here is an even MORE effective natural alternative.
Susan Sumner, a food scientist at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, developed a proven formulation for natural sanitization. You simply need 3% hydrogen peroxide (the same strength found at the drug store for gargling or disinfection), and plain white vinegar. You add these to new clean sprayer, which can be found in any big mass retailer like Wal-Mart or Target.
Spray it on areas that are usually loaded with bacteria like the armpits, the neckline, in sweaty areas, in underwear, etc. Make sure that you test the spray in an inconspicuous area of clothing to ensure colorfastness. The hydrogen peroxide is a very effective natural bleach and can bleed colors, so be careful.
In tests run at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, pairing the two ingredients killed virtually all Salmonella, Shigella, or E. coli bacteria on heavily contaminated surfaces. This formulation is more effective at killing these potentially deadly bacteria than any name brand cleaner, or even chlorine bleach.
As an extra bonus, this combined formulation works exceptionally well at sanitizing food preparation surfaces (like counter-tops and wood cutting boards), and other areas where harsh and toxic cleaners are predominantly used. The formulation is so safe that it can even be used to remove the pesticides and chemicals on fruits and vegetables.
Your laundry room can be a cleaner, safer place and fight bacteria, without exposing yourself and your family to toxic chemicals that also damage the environment. You can make a very inexpensive, simple and totally safe disinfecting spray that is more effective than any name brand disinfecting cleaners, and even bleach, in killing bacteria and microorganisms.
