This weeks’ Do One Thing is about making a natural antibacterial spray. In the last however many years, the idea that we have to spray antibacterial cleaners all over our house and children has come to be fact, when it’s not at all. We actually need germs to survive, and if we “teach” them to evolve to get away from our antibacterial sprays, we will be in big trouble. BUT if you feel like you need it for that once in a while thing (family full of the flu, for example), here is how to make a healthier version.
Combine these ingredients in a spray bottle:
1 teaspoon of essential oil of mint or rosemary
1 cup of white vinegar
That’s it! You can now spray this on hard, non-porous surfaces to try to fight some germs. But please, do not overuse it – we need most germs that are present everywhere!
