That said… yes, I wash my hands and certainly encourage my toddler washing his hands in our home, too. We simply aren’t obsessive about it.
When we do wash our hands, we want to make sure that a few things are occurring…
We are actually getting them clean… in a NON-TOXIC fashion.
We are actually improving their condition… in an organic, HEALTHY fashion.
We aren’t hurting our own bodies… and also not hurting our ENVIRONMENT.
Sound good to you, too? Then this is the super easy DIY antibacterial hand soap for you.
