My neighbour, who also has a 6 month old, told me about a great new way to clean her house and the baby’s toys. I saw it at her house, researched it online and ordered one for myself. I am talking about the Ionator Hom from http://www.activeion.com. It is absolutely amazing, the only cleaning product you will ever need again! You put tap water into a spray -like machine and spray onto any surface. It comes with a plug for recharging the battery. I haven’t had to plug mine in yet.
The website claims that it kills 99% of germs and viruses including H1N1, the flu, salmonella, etc. I have used it on wood floors, countertops, mirrors, sinks, appliances, ceramic floors and it is really clean with no streaks. I even spray all of cubby’s toys and teethers once a week or when they fall on the ground, and let them air dry. I cannot say enough good things about the Ionator Hom. Especially with the baby spending a lot of her time on the floor, and soon she will be crawling, it is great that there is no use of chemicals or smell. It is a little expensive, but worth the splurge. I’m not buying cleaning products ever again!
