Do you have allergies, sensitive skin, or small kids in your house? If so, it might be a smart idea to use natural cleaning products in your home instead of chemical-based cleaners.
It’s easy to understand that using natural or plant-based products can contribute to healthy living, but it can be a little confusing when you first get started. This blog article will introduce you to some of the easiest and best natural cleaning products out there.
White vinegar is awesome for cleaning, disinfecting, and deodorizing many different surfaces. I personally use a spray bottle of straight white vinegar to clean my granite countertops. There’s a very strong vinegar smell at first, but that dissipates after just a few moments and you are left with clean and safely disinfected countertops.
Another use for white vinegar is to clean your microwave. You can just spray it with the same spray bottle and wipe – but an even better (and more fun!) way to clean the baked on gunk and stains on the inside of your microwave is to put a cup of white vinegar in a microwave safe bowl and microwave it for 2 minutes. The vinegar will steam and loosen the caked on food so it’s easy to wipe away. They have microwave cleaning bags that do the same thing, but this will cost you about .49 for a small bottle of white vinegar that will last you a few uses versus a few dollars for one use.
Most people know this easy trick – just put an open box of baking soda in the back of your fridge and it will absorb all of the extra odors.
You can also sprinkle baking soda on your carpet, let it sit for 10 minutes, and vacuum it up to clean the carpet. It will absorb the odors and make everything fresh and clean.
If you have a pan that is greasy from meat just sprinkle some salt in it, then you can scrub it with your soft sponge like normal. The salt won’t scratch the finish because it will dissolve in the water.
Lemons are wonderful for cleaning and deodorizing. You can slice up a lemon, add a few ice cubes, and toss it down your dish disposal. It will clean the disposal beautifully and make it smell like fresh lemons.
