My Favorite Household Product, Clorox, and a Flip Video Camera Giveaway from Alice
I'm sure you're wondering what the connection is between Clorox and a Flip Video Camera giveaway. Let me explain. Alice is hosting a giveaway for a Flip Video Camera, and the only way to win is by answering the question “What household product are you most loyal to and why?” The product I am most loyal to is a real oldie but a goodie - Clorox Bleach! I remember my mother using Clorox when I was a little girl, and now I use it to clean just about everything. I add Clorox to my laundry to whiten fabrics and eliminate odors. I use it on surfaces throughout my home to kill germs, bacteria, and viruses. And, let me tell you, not just any old cleaner will kill viruses! Clorox kills MRSA, or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and Norovirus, a creepy pathogen that is really difficult to destroy. Yikes!
Back to cleaning, I also pour just a little, maybe one cup, of Clorox Bleach into my toilet. Then I use my toilet brush to make a couple of swipes around the bowl. I close the toilet lid and leave it for about half an hour or until I finally wake up from my nap...I mean finish my numerous other chores. I flush, and my toilet is sparkly clean and smells Cloroxy fresh. I also use it to clean sinks by placing the stopper in the sink, kitchen or bathroom. I cover the bottom of the sink with Clorox Bleach and add water till the sink is about half full. I let this stand for around thirty minutes, and voila - clean, germ-free sink! And did you know the majority of Clorox Bleach quickly degrades to salt water! I'm not a "go green" nut, but this fact does make me happy. Well, maybe not as happy as my clean sinks make me, but pretty darn happy just the same.
That's it, the product I can't live without - Clorox Bleach!
