Ask the Green Mama: Alternatives to bleach and anti-bacterial hand soap in schools?

Dear Green Mama,

I am the administrator for a preschool in Illinois. We are trying to green our school. I have read your Green Your Classroom article. I want to use a healthier alternative to bleach? What can I do? DCFS says I need to use anti-bacterial hand soap with the kids, but I know it is bad. Are they right?

—Green Administrator
