To win this battle, there’s no need to use harsh, toxic chemicals. Instead, Two Men & a Vacuum bring the weapons and knowledge needed to prevail! With natural cleaning products, a comprehensive plan of attack and the tenacity of a tiger and mongoose duct-taped together, Two Men & a Vacuum can save a home from a child’s illness!

Natural Products to the Rescue

Many assume that bleach is the best plan of attack when it comes to killing germs and preventing them from strong-arming their way into someone’s life. But natural cleaners clean-up germs and avoid bringing poisonous chemicals (another dangerous enemy) into a home.

Two Men & a Vacuum prepare with just a few ingredients, all of which contain antibacterial properties for serious germ fighting:

  • Vinegar – One common product Two Men & a Vacuum always have in their arsenal is vinegar. It’s possible to clean with straight vinegar or dilute it with water to use on a daily basis. A ratio of 5 parts vinegar to 1 part water is ideal.

  • Hydrogen peroxide – Another strong weapon is hydrogen peroxide, which should be mixed 50/50 with water. Two Men & a Vacuum always make sure to use a spray bottle that is opaque.  Boiling water or rubbing alcohol work as well.

  • Tea tree oil – Mix a few drops with water and watch the germs perish!

  • Grapefruit seed extract – Mix a few drops with watch and slay the germs naturally!

  • Biokleen’s Bac-Out – Mix with water in a ratio of 1:3.

Ready, aim, fire! – All of these ingredients can simply be mixed into a spray bottle for easy sanitizing.

Where to Clean

Now that the weapons are prepared, Two Men and a Vacuum begin the battle! They first attack the bathroom with lightening speed and superhero strength. Shooting their natural cleaners across the faucets, sinks, counters, toilets, floors, and shower. They swipe the family’s toothbrushes and douse them in hydrogen peroxide, thus perishing the germy foes!

Next, they dash to the kitchen (with new, clean cloths) to continue the fight on the family’s countertops and kitchen table. Then, they run the dishwasher on the sanitize setting.

Two Men & a Vacuum know that the enemies also lie in other communal areas of the home. They fiercely attack doorknobs, light switches, the backs of chairs, handles to drawers and cabinets, and handrails.

They also strike germs from clothing, hand towels, sheets, and blankets by running the washing machine on the hot setting (throwing in a splash of vinegar to help sanitize). Finally, they use a small amount of rubbing alcohol to wipe down the computer’s keyboard.

Now that the home is free of both germs and poisonous chemicals, Two Men & a Vacuum head back to their sparkling clean hideout. Waiting to be called into action another day.
