A Better Antibacterial Cleaner

I recently tried this antibacterial kitchen cleaner by method and I’m definitely a fan. It naturally kills 99.9% of household germs including influenza A, staphylococcus aureus, salmonella enterica and E. coli. Yes, I did say “naturally”! I love that they used CleanWell’s herbal antibacterial formula (thyme oil & oregano oil) to power this cleaner (CleanWell has an entire line of naturally antibacterial products).

If you’re going to use antibacterial cleaning products this is one of the best and healthiest options on the market right now. Choose between two delightful scents – lemon verbena or orange zest – for just $3.99 or less. I opted for the lemon verbena (from Target), but I think I would like the orange zest scent even more.

Why make the switch to a natural antibacterial cleaner? Research is continually showing that antibacterial products can cause bacterial resistance, thus decreasing the effectiveness of antibiotics. The most common ingredient in antibacterial products is a chemical compound called triclosan, which has been proven to have some serious negative side effects on your health (see previous post for more info).

  1. I also recently discovered Method at Target. I’ve been using the dish washing liquid. It’s a great alternative to the toxic SLS dish soap out there. I use vinegar and water with a little lemon oil to clean surfaces (it is anti-bacterial also) but I will totally pick up a bottle of this kitchen cleaner to have as a back up next time I’m in Target. :-)

  2. The one I use now is so strong it gives a headache! Saw this one at Target and was wondering if it was good…love that it’s natural AND cleans all of the bacteria. Hope your week is going well lady! xo

  3. I’ve been using Trader Joe’s All-Purpose Cleaner for everything, but it isn’t antibacterial, so I am definitely willing to try this one!

    I started using the Trader’s facial cleanser I mentioned a few weeks back. So far, so good. I’ll let you know when I’ve been using it a little longer!

    xoxo
