Whenever I did clean, I always felt nervous about using all of those chemicals. What if it touched my skin...should I clean my hands?...should I be breathing this stuff in?...is this actually going to work?? Sometimes it did, but often it didn't. AND cleaning supplies are EXPENSIVE! I'd stand in the cleaning supply aisle at the supermarket and look at all the prices, trying to decide if it was even worth buying. Way too many unknowns!
