Health Tips - Detergents, Dishwashing
There is a film that remains on your dishes that finds its way into your body. As most dishwasher detergents have toxins and dyes in them that can increase your cancer risk, who needs them?!
A healthier alternative is 1 – 2 teaspoons of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda, which kills some germs and is the least toxic dishwasher detergent you will find. Do not use more than 2 tsp, as the dishes tend to spot.
To reduce germs further and avoid spotting, dissolve the baking soda with 3% hydrogen peroxide in your dish detergent tray.
Simple and inexpensive!
