When it comes to a clean home we all want to see our glass gleaming and our toilet looking and smelling fresh, but the chemical products we use can make the jobs hard to sustain. We normally end up breathing in these far too potent chemicals and which in essence makes these tasks horrible!
But in fact you do not need to use these chemicals and you can use much more eco-friendly cleaning solutions. And you probably already have them in your home, in this article I will give you 4 cleaning solutions you can use that will make your home greener and also keeping it cleaner.
Baking soda is one of the cheapest ways of cleaning while also being one of the most effective on the market, I have given baking soda as a tip before when it comes to keeping your oven clean and in fact it can be used on just about anything, including things such as your carpets. One of the best and easiest tips I can give when it comes to using baking soda is simply to keep your fridge smelling beautiful and fresh, just by simply leaving a opened box of baking soda in your fridge will give your fridge a lovely smell.
Another great use as I mentioned briefly earlier is that baking soda can be a great use for cleaning carpets. In my opinion it is probably one of the best techniques you can use for this chore. To use baking soda on your carpet, simply sprinkle some baking soda onto an area of your carpet in which you want to get rid of a smell or a stain or even all over just to give your carpet a lift, then all you have to do is hoover as normal and problem solved!
This is probably one of the most under used, yet natural cleaning products you will find, no matter how hard you look! Vinegar is a great and also cost effective idea when it comes to cleaning your windows especially compared to products such as Windex.
Another great use of vinegar, well in this case white vinegar. It has a lovely acidity level, as it will be strong enough to get rid of all household germs and grit, yet there isn’t enough danger from it too damage our skins, therefore there is no big need for wearing rubber gloves.
If you are looking for a new hardwood floor solution look no further than vinegar. You can even dilute the vinegar down into a spray bottle; simply add half a cup of water and half of vinegar into a spray bottle and use on your hardwood floors for a sparkling finish!
Olive Oil with Lemon Juice
There are many household problems that olive oil with lemon juice will fight, the lemon juice has a similar acidity level to vinegar and because of this is another good solution to battle against household grit!
If you want to get rid of any household mould or mildew or even any other fungi which can be found in the home then lemon juice will do the job. On the other hand olive oil is a very good natural polishing solution.
If you want to enjoy the great benefits of olive oil and lemon juice combined then mix one part lemon juice to two parts olive oil and apply to wood furniture for a gleaming and gorgeous smelling household.
The final tips and solution I give you is hydrogen peroxide, you may normally associate this product with cleaning out things such as cuts and grazes on humans, and however it can do the same job on grouted surfaces such as kitchen counters.
And another huge bonus of hydrogen peroxide has to be it can be used to get rid of yellow stains down to perspiration on white tops, but with this tip I must note that ensure you gently rinse all of the solution out before washing with any other item of clothing.
