My War Against Bleach!

I am raging a war against Bleach. It has recently taken victim my brand new (and expensive) Carhartt sweatshirt. I believe the tragedy occurred while I was quickly cleaning up the bathroom before some friends came over. I didn't notice the sweatshirt's wounds until the next day when I pulled it out of the wash and saw the tell-tale faded sign of a Bleached victim! Grrrr.
So, that's it! Bleach is forever banished from the Curtis household. Luckily, there were only a couple cleaning products under my sink that contained bleach. With Bleach banished, I started my quest for it's alternative. I had been using vinegar and water for quite some time, but I didn't use it for the really grimy, nasty cleaning jobs. Thus, my vinegar research begins.
WOW. I never knew just how many things vinegar can be used for. After a quick Google search, I found lots of info about using vinegar, and not only for cleaning! I won't bore you with all the details, but I would love to know of any great non-bleach cleaning solutions you may know of?? 

Besides, it's more fun to be resourceful isn't it? 

...I am still mad about my sweatshirt.

  1. Vinegar is good for cleaning, cooking, and other purposes. I keep gallons of it in the house. Thanks for the websites.

    I can't tell you how many time's I've ruined stuff from bleach. It usually make me mad as well.
