It’s time to disinfect right now. Hydrogen peroxide and/or vinegar are two chemicals that work particularly well when it comes to organically disinfecting surfaces. When applied back-to-back to disinfect a surface in the kitchen, these two disinfectants are a powerhouse (P.S.: you should NEVER combine the two ingredients into one cleaner). Hydrogen peroxide or vinegar is the sole item I use to disinfect toilet bowls. Simply screw a spray nozzle onto the vinegar or hydrogen peroxide container. The disinfectant should next be sprayed or poured over the toilet bowl’s sides. After giving the disinfectant 30 minutes to sit so it can start killing bacteria, flush!
