My wife recently found some website recommending mixing 91% isopropyl alcohol, white vinegar, water, and corn starch and using it to wipe down countertops. This would be where we put our raw chicken and pork after washing them.
I'm concerned that this won't kill the germs as well as harsh chemicals would, although I am as eager as she is to replace those hard chemicals. I need to know, from a chemist, whether isopropyl alcohol really will kill all those E. coli and Salmonella and whatever else the raw poultry is leaving behind.
As a bonus, can anyone recommend any better solutions that we can make on our own than the one mentioned above?
