For spray germ fighter, I one part rubbing alcohol to three parts distilled water, in a spray bottle ...... spray on counters to clean them. .. It works better than bleach, because there is no after smell, and you don't have to rinse. ... You can also spray on hands, and wipe dry ... same thing they sell at high prices to disinfect hands.

......Don't fight change! Change is a wondrous, fun new way to look and live. ........It's exciting and invigorating!

My grandmother used to boil her dishcloths. Bring water to a rolling boil in sauce pan - add dishcloth - boil one min. more - let sit for 5 to 10 min.

Hmm. Interesting idea. When I worked in the mess halls on Ft Dix, we used sturdy paper towels, the same ones all day then tossed. Thanks, I'll microwave my dishcloth at the end of the day after I rinse it.

Hi,
I used to work in a commercial kitchen. We use to put our sponges in the microwave, I think it would work for dishcloths too. We just put them in wet for a short period of time. :)

Life may not be the party we hoped for but while we're here we should dance......

I watch this show on BBC America called How Clean is your House. These ladies generally use eco friendly cleaners but to keep your dishcloth smelling sweet they recommend putting it in the sink with a little water, some dish soap and a few drops of bleach. Do you have an alternative?

Thanks Carmen.

Namaste
Celia

We've all been told to wash our hands more frequently. Here is an antiseptic, germ fighting spray to use on cuts and scrapes. May also be used as a room spray.
12 drops tea tree
6 drops eucalyptus
6 drops lemon 2 oz. distilled water
Combine ingredients and add to spray bottle. Shake gently before use.
