There is an alternative to bleach

Chlorine bleach is a hazardous material. Sure, it's an excellent cleaning medium, but do you really, really want the toxic exposure when there are alternatives?

I found this at Publix this weekend: Chlorine-free bleach. Active ingredient? Hydrogen peroxide, citric acid and water, which breaks down into harmless oxygen and water. Does it work? Yes.

I paid $1.50 for mine, works great on stains!

Try it!

I may try that AND the other suggestion on my snake's tank. Snakes are really suseptible to chemical fumes, so this may be just the ticket...and right on time! I'd planned to clean his tank this weekend.

Thanks for the tip! I don't like using regular bleach either, so this would be a great alternative :)
