The Journey towards a Chemical Free Life: Natural Antibacterial Spray

As already discussed, this journey has to be completed one step at a time. Many disinfectants that we use in our homes are highly toxic and too strong for use in the home, so lets take a look at this simple antibacterial spray

At Dragonfly's Early Learning, we aim to be as chemical free as possible so continually look and research to see how we can remove the chemicals from our centre

In the old days, herbs were used to disinfect the home environment. Lavender, mint, lemon balm and thyme were laid on floors, hung from the rafters or potted up in window boxes. This of course, doesn't happen today so we need to look for other methods to disinfect our homes

This spray is great for the many household areas that you want to remain bacteria free; chopping boards, kitchen benches, bathroom benches, laundry and sick room areas, etc.

During hot weather it is especially important to be aware that these are ideal conditions for bacteria to multiply.  Make sure everything is covered and in the fridge, and if you are cooking things like chicken make up this spray to keep on hand in the kitchen for kitchen surfaces and chopping boards.

It’s also great as a quick hand sanitiser if you are out and about.

It’s a good spray to keep in the loo as an air-freshener and great as a surface bug killer.

Try this Natural Antibacterial Spray and take the next step towards a chemical free life
