You cant expose it to light though… That’s why they put it in dark bottles to begin with.

I just remove the top from bottle and add a sprayer on top. Easier!

I don’t think I’d want my house to smell like that.

the smell goes away pretty quickly…I have a couple cleaners that are vinegar or peroxide based, and you can’t smell them.

    Things I learned in school! I remembered tackling about this during our chemistry class. True enough hydrogen peroxide, sodium bicarbonate, or even simply the baking soda… all of those can do wonders at home! So if you don't want to get help from those cleaning franchise, you can have your do-it-yourself cleaning materials. And yes, don't just clean them, kill them germs!
