To Clean or Not To Clean...
I came across an article from Sept. 14 on the MSNBC site talking about all the Superbugs that make our kids sick nowadays. One theory is that we're "too clean." Yes germs cause illness, but often so do the chemicals we use to get rid of those germs. I struggle with this because I LOVE TO CLEAN. It's an illness, I know! But I love when new cleaning products come out, new cleaning gadgets, and although you can't always tell this is an obsession of mine because my 2 girls and I live in a small house that dirties easily, there's nothing better than a rainy day and the kids at school so I can scrub stuff. Seriously. And remember my sewage issues from a few months ago? I was so happy to bleach my basement when that was over! And yet... I want to be green, we don't do shots or antibiotics in our home, we don't even really do perscriptions (I literally think the kids have had 2 perscriptions TOTAL, between the 2 of them, in the last 10 years). So why subject my kids and myself to the crap in cleaning products when plain old soap and water is probably just as good?! I need to be delivered:)
