Tip of the Day

Hand sanitizer and other antibacterial soaps and cleaners can kill of your body’s good bacteria that keep bad bacteria at bay. This creates an open environment for not-so-healthy bacteria to grow back uncontrolled. These products also can contain harsh chemicals that can be difficult to eliminate from the body. Switch to regular soap and homemade cleaners for a more balanced and gentle cleansing. Baking soda, white vinegar, lemon, and/or plain old water are great for making your own cleaners at home.
