2020 has been the year of disinfecting, and as a germaphobe, I had a clear plan of action. If you want to know more about disinfecting without exposing your family to harmful chemicals, read my post about how to keep your home germ free.
My favorite budget-friendly clean hand soap is Everyone Hand Soap – it suds well, is scented with essential oils, and the whole family loves it. the dispenser can easily be refilled with Everyone Hand Soap Refill. After washing and drying, my favorite Everyone Nourishing Lotion hydrates and moisturizes. If you need a refresh on how to wash your hands, I’ve got a graphic with all of the steps in my non-toxic hand soap post.
Force of Nature is on EPA’s List of Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19. This is my favorite disinfectant, and I highly recommend it! It disinfects & sanitizes with no toxic chemicals and is kid and pet friendly. Force of Nature is a broad-spectrum disinfectant and sanitizer that’s EPA registered for use in hospitals, ICUs, daycares, schools, veterinary clinics, gyms, restaurants & more. It kills 99.9% of germs: Staph, MRSA, Norovirus, Influenza A, Salmonella, and Listeria. How does it work? Salt, water and vinegar are converted to electrolyzed water when an electrical current changes the chemical composition of the solution into two new ingredients.

Phones are loaded with germs, and this UV sanitizer gives me peace of mind. Disinfect your smartphone with the PhoneSoap 3 UV Smartphone Sanitizer, which uses UVC light to sanitize.
Here’s what I look for in a hand sanitizer: free of synthetic fragrance, parabens and phthalates and containing 70% ethanol or ethyl alcohol (the CDC recommends using a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol).
Dr. Brite Keychain Hand Sanitizer has a handy caribiner that clips onto purses and backpacks. That means you always have hand sanitizer with you. This keychain hand sanitizer has been right where I need it when I’m out and about. Juice Beauty Green Apple Hand Sanitizer is the most moisturizing clean hand sanitizer that we tried. Hands down this was a family favorite. If you find yourself using hand sanitizer every 5 minutes, this will keep your hands hydrated and moisturized.
