How about the "I only use whatever I happen to have under the kitchen sink" option? The only options here are "I use specific ones" or "I don't use them at all".

Now how did you manage to bring politics into that? Sexuality is a core part of our existence as humans, and there's no reason you should try to deny knowledge of or hide it. There's nothing dirty or shameful about sexuality, it's as natural as the air we breathe

biology, including reproduction, is an essential part of education. people are too emotionally hung up on "sex ed", which is also why parents are the worst teachers of it.

No, maybe they think thats the parents responsibility. Not theirs. I know when I was in school I would not have wanted my teachers to talk about it at all, they didn't. Ask their mothers or fathers not the school teachers.

It's nice to have options. I don't think my parents ever really spoke to me about it, and I never asked. I guess I learned most of it in school and I'm fine with that. If parents had an option to opt their kids out of it and teach them at home, that'd be fine. It just makes some people uncomfortable, so having more places to learn about it is helpful for everyone.

Vinegar is a natural disinfectant, as well as lemon, and they are not as corrosive as bleach. Soak lemon (lime, grapefruit, or orange peels work too!) rinds in a vinegar/water mixture (1/4 vinegar to 3/4 water) for a few days (or weeks). Strain out the liquid and use as a safe, non-corrosive, all purpose cleaner that smells awesome. It's great for baby items too since it's completely non toxic, it wouldn't even hurt them to drink it, although it would probably taste nasty. Much better than bleach as well since it won't ruin clothing. If you want more of a scent, you can add natural oils such as lemongrass or lavender. Thyme oil, tea tree oil, and grapefuit seed extract are also great natural disinfectants that are perfect to add to laundry (TTO and Thyme don't smell the greatest though!)

Store bought cleaners are disgusting, even the more natural ones contain a butt-load of chemicals.

The chemicals in the store bought cleaners are very harmful and most of them are toxic to our household animals. the cleaning products for floors, carpets and furniture will make your pets sick it they lick it. household pets lick their paws. they get the chemicals off of the floors, carpet, and their bedding on their paws, then lick and they get sick or worse. I know this because I lost one of my cats to chemical poisoning, he walked across a floor that I had mopped with pine sol to his bed laid there and licked himself and them a few hours later was foaming at the mouth.. It was horrible to see it happen and I didn't know why he was so sick till I took him to the vet. So please be careful.

I love to use all different kinds of cleaning products. My mother used many when I was a child, and I am in my 30s and have no deformities or health problems like many people here seem to fear. I like the classic style products like Windex, Soft Scrub, Bar Keeper's Friend, Scrubbing Bubbles, Lysol, Pine-Sol, and one stellar product I have seen mentioned here: Lestoil. I like to use the latter three as all-in-one products, usually quite diluted (as per bottle instructions). Oh, but I also agree, Magic Erasers are a great new product, especially for for tubs and walls. And I use Dawn dish soap for dishes and some specific greasy jobs.

I think it's more like health problems are exacerbated by potent chemicals. Asthma, for example, is triggered by bleach. We aren't necessarily deformed by cleaners...unless you count cancer from fabric softeners, I guess.

Bluela, try diluting the Dawn and take it to your laundry room for greasy stains on clothes - works FAR better than anything else on the market. My son is in the auto repair industry and sometimes ends up back in the shop, it's the only thing I've found that gets the stains out. I started using it years ago on his Boy Scout uniforms, even on stains that had been through the dryer.

You can wash your veggies in white vinegar and water. Usually about a 1/4 cup vinegar to a gallon of water in a bowl, then just wash off all your fruits and veggies in that...let dry in a drying rack or on a towel, then put in the fridge.
