Hydrogen peroxide and vinegar are know for their natural antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties.
When used in tandem, they two are a sanitizing powerhouse, but here's the catch: when mixed together the combination produces peracetic acid, an effective but cytotoxic antibacterial that can cause irritation to the skin, eyes, and respiratory system.
A safer and more effective way to harness the santizing power of this mighty duo is with a two-step technique developed by food scientist Susan Sumner.
Fill an opaque plastic spray bottle with 3% hydrogen peroxide.
Fill a second spray bottle (glass or plastic) with vinegar.
Mist the surface to be disinfected with hydrogen peroxide followed immediately with a mist of vinegar.
When paired, but applied separately, these non-toxic cleaners do an exceptional job at disinfecting floors, countertops, and cutting boards.
It is also a safe way to sanitize produce that will be eaten raw.
