Sanitizing Kitchen/Glass Cleaner

For years, I have not used a single sponge on my counters.  Even a sponge sanitized in the microwave or the dishwasher gives me the creeps.  When my daughter was young, she had an immune system problem called Neutropenia.  As a result, she didn't grow enough white cells to fight off bacteria.  On that day, the sponge and the kitchen rag went into the garbage.

For a while, I relied on bleach to sanitize the counters, but I ruined some perfectly nice mom tops with bleach.  I do spend more than the average person on paper towels, but I like knowing that I am not spreading germs around.

This is my favorite homemade sanitizing kitchen and glass cleaner.  I believe I saw the original recipe in Heloise once.

Fill an old glass cleaner bottle about 1/3 of the way with isopropyl alcohol.  Add another 1/3 of vinegar.  Add literally ONE single drop of Dawn dish soap.  Fill the rest of the bottle with water.  I did add 20 drops of lavender essential oil to temper the vinegar smell somewhat.

I also use this solution on my wood floor when cleaning up one spot with the Swifter Wet Jet, and I clean my stainless steel appliances with this solution too.

And, my clothes no longer have errant bleach spots.
