 After too much fun experimenting with NaHCO3 (baking soda) and HCL (vinegar) in 5th grade Awesome Science, I thought I’d  better investigate  how we could use the reactants and products of our chemical reactions.  Here is some great news …………………….

Now, if you are like most of us, we love the idea of vinegar, but struggle with the….SMELL.  Well, some way-cool science friends of mine decided  to experiment and  invented  a product  that cleans without the smell.

Here’s an excerpt about vinegar from 

“Vinegar is also environmentally friendly. It’s biodegradable and won’t harm the environment in any way. It’s even effective and safe enough to use to kill grass or weeds in place of spray weed killer. One study showed vinegar kills 99 percent of surface bacteria, 80 percent of germs, and 82 percent of molds on a counter. That’s with a 5 percent solution just like you could purchase at the grocery store. Since vinegar is natural, it won’t harm your plumbing at all. “
