Sanitized Counters

This Sparked Me!

Put a bottle of inexpensive (read, cheap) White Vinegar in a spray bottle. Put a bottle of inexpensive (yep) peroxide in another spray bottle.
After meals and clean-up have been done, spray a light mist of the vinegar over all surfaces, including your sink, and wipe off. Then spray a light mist of peroxide over everything and wipe that off.
The acid in the vinegar kills billions of bacteria and germs, the peroxide kills millions of bacteria & germs and removes slight odor of vinegar.

You now have a sink that would pass a Food Service inspection.

Don't forget the faucet and faucet handles!

Store bottles under the sink where it is dark. Constant exposure to light breaks down the peroxide into plain water.

    I use vinegar and water, mixed half and half in a spray bottle. We have granite counter tops and it doesn't leave streaks like those expensive Lysol wipes I used to use. Sometimes if our counters are disgusting I will use Clorox spray first, and then vinegar and water afterwards to get rid of the streaks and the Clorox smell. Saves us tons of money, and looks better too!
I haven't tried the peroxide... Do you use 1/2 water as well with that? Does it leave streaks? I would try this too if it doesn't leave streaks!
