The checkout clerks at local discount stores are always fascinated when I show up with a cart full of white vinegar bottles, perhaps some boxes of baking soda, and not much else. They often seem surprised when I answer their questioning looks by explaining that it takes very few products to do everyday cleaning at my house. It’s not that I haven’t been tempted by other appealing bottles and boxes of products; I’m just not sure if they’re right for my family since apparently no one has been minding the store when it comes to long-term consumer safety.
