Which is safer for children to clean with (children as young as 2)?

Wipes made with bleach or a rag with diluted vinegar water?

(Dispute between myself and a friend)

  • The vinegar is non-toxic, just look at all the warnings on a container of clorox wipes. Those chemicals are eye irritants, skin irritants, lung irritants, are carcinogenic (cause cancer) and can cause dealth...vinegar just tastes bad, lol.

  • A 2 year old should only have the diluted vinegar to clean with.

  • Vinegar. The bleach poses no risk once it's dry, but I wouldn't put it in a kid's hands, they'll rub their eyes, they'll stick their damp fingers in their mouths...
