I also know when enough is enough. I understand that a certain level of germ is acceptable, even wanted. I am a big probiotic fan and support natural remedies well above any chemically enhanced pill.
I am also a Googler. Which, combined with my love of clean and my passion for herbal cures, gets me into a search engine frenzy when I come across a problem.
My newest issue: fleas. My house has got a couple and barring chemical bombing my apartment, what can I do? Well, I can:
- Vacuum a lot (great, I got no vacuum)
- Dehumidify (great, no dehumidifier and it is hot and steamy in Zaq); or
- Use salt, boric acid and consume a table spoon of apple cider vinegar everyday (this, I can do!)
2nd world countries are interesting places.
(Update: Newest problem: cockroaches)
