The Truth About Bleach

Bleach is often noted as the cheap cleaner that will sterilize above all else. While bleach is an effective disinfectant, it does have its downsides.

Bleach can be rough on countertops. Even when diluted, bleach can be a strong, abrasive cleaner. For your stone or concrete countertops this can cause the sealant to wear down, causing you the hassle of having to reseal your counter sooner rather than later. And for your laminate countertops, they are tough but over time, bleach can cause discoloration.

Also, while household bleach isn’t toxic, it can be an irritant for your skin, eyes and lungs when cleaning with it. If there are young ones in the house, it can damage their skin if they come in direct contact with it. Keep those bottles out of reach!

With the health trend growing, there are increasingly more options for a safer bleach alternative. Whether it is in your home or office, it is worth it to take the steps to minimize your use of bleach and you, may want to start thinking about that alternative.

Flu-proof Your Home

Show winter colds the door by keeping a germ-free house with these tips: 

  • Keep an eye out for germ hot spots in the home.​ Germs love to linger on the most popular surfaces like the remote controls, phones, door handles and keys. Clean these daily to avoid spreading germs between family members. It is as simple as wiping them down with a disinfectant.
  • Make hand washing second nature.​ Remind your kids to wash their hands when they get home from school before they run rampant in the house. All those kids they played with are coming home with them. Wash hands in warm, soapy water when you get home and before you eat!
  • Humidify the home. ​ Believe it or not, flu viruses love cool, dry environments. Keeping the air in your home at a higher humidity level will not only help your chapped lips, but will help you stay healthy.
  • Clean house. ​ It’s probably obvious by now that germs love to live in less-than-clean environments. They love dirty countertops, dusty floors and messy bathrooms. By spending the time to tidy-up and clean these messy areas, you save yourself a week out of work because of the flu — or worse yet, because your kids have the flu.
