Use alcohol to disinfect.

Today's tip is one that I follow every day. angel I no longer buy the pricey disinfectant cleaners for my kitchen or bathroom. Okay, so I do keep a bottle of Green Works by Clorox (the dilutable stuff) in my closet. garupale BUT, I only break that out in dire situations where my other cleaning methods just didn't get the job done which is very rarely.
I cleaned out a used, empty bottle of name brand disinfectant and used that to hold my disinfectant solution. This way everyone still knows what it's for, there's no confusion, and I'm being ecOnomical reusing an old bottle!

The solution I use is about 45% alcohol and 55% water. Every now and again I'll spice things up by adding an orange or lemon peel. It adds a nice scent. I had someone ask me once why I didn't just use alcohol alone. Open a bottle of alcohol once and take a small wiff. Nasty smelling stuff and it dries too quickly. Using the 45/55solution, I can get everything cleaned and disinfected without using large quantities of cleaner or having a wet surface.

Some people choose to clean with just water. I have nothing against cleaning this way, I just prefer using alcohol along with the water. This way, I don't have water spots...the alcohol helps the water evaporate quicker.

I feel that I should add that I am referring to rubbing alcohol. There are people out there...
