We've done some pretty good veggie curries recently, and have tried some meat substitutes (jackfruit seemed to work quite well when we tried it). I'd like to cut down on our meat consumption and we've achieved it, at points - but there is one big problem... we find meat delicious.
I have thought about the cleaning sprays but when I asked Smol and another place about whether they were antibacterial they said they were ‘about as antibacterial as soap and killed around 90% of bacteria if you keep it well agitated when using’, which didn’t seem as effectively antibacterial as the 99.9% effective Dettol spray.
I've kind of picked up on this as it's an interest of mine as I work in environments where we spend quite a lot of effort on trying to contain/eliminate nasties.... I'm not sure how much of a difference this % kill really makes in the everyday world, and how much of it is just for the benefit of advertising. Lady T used to love the anti-bac wipes but they do seem wasteful, and I feel that regular thorough cleaning with standard products would stop any nasties getting a foothold and locking in before spreading, which is really the danger (immunocompromised folk would need a higher standard of cleaning, of course).
For a while Lady T was making her own cleaning products using soaps and essential oils. I didn't really like it, but I was also a bit grouchy at the time.
At work, we are really troubled by infection and cross contamination and have begun using some stuff called 'zoono' on our equipment. This stuff has a long lasting residual action - it basically coats surfaces in tiny microscopic spikes that 'pop' any micro-organisms that touch the surface.
