Green Cleaning Tips for your Home

Cleaning services

If you are aiming for an impeccable hygiene, but at the same time you want to give up on synthetic and chemical cleaning products, you should consider using only natural cleaning solutions. To stay in line with what nature provides, just look around and you could easily find enough to sparkle clean your home. You will be surprised how many everyday household products canΒ be used for cleaning. Let’s take a look at them!

  1. Surprisingly one of the most efficient cleaning products is vinegar. Used to conserve food for thousands of years, it is one of the strongest natural acids and is the ancient equivalent to all modern antibacterial products. It has been used for cleaning purposes since the times of the Roman Empire and still surpasses many modern cleaning solutions without any known toxicity or side effects. This makes vinegar ideal for dealing with grease, thick dust or dirt. It’s also very useful for cleaning brass, marble, tiles, upholstery and windows. If nothing else helps just dip a cloth into some vinegar – it might prove to be the miracle you just hoped for.
  2. Another β€œnatural cleaning wonder” is baking soda. It’s a natural stain and odor removing product that can be used all around the house to get rid of nasty smells, dried-out wine, blood spills or other hard-to-remove stains. Furthermore it’s an excellent drain cleaner – putting baking soda on textiles like carpets, upholstery or rugs can remove almost any stain and odor and restore their appearance, even after many years of usage. It’s completely chemical free and is therefore no risk to the human health. This makes baking soda one of the most efficient household cleaning product and first choice for stain removal.
  3. Lemon juice is also a very powerful cleaning productΒ . Just squeeze a few drops and you have an excellent glass, filth and grease cleaner, which could easily disintegrate any clog, dirt or mineral deposit. It’s very useful for molds, too. There is almost no substance that can withstand the power of fresh lemon juice and it can clean your home just like it cleans your body. Another benefit is the fresh lemon smell replacing the nasty mold or rotten food smell.

Since lemon juice is a similar powerful natural acid like vinegar, so it can also be used to clean plots, sinks, tiles, marble, brass and windows. But be careful when using it on unprotected metal or paper. Acids can damage iron and if they are not washed well can cause rust. That’s why you should immediately wash items or cookware very well after using lemon juice or vinegar on them. These acids should not be used on any surface covered with paper or cardboard, since they can disintegrate them. In case you dissolve a few drops of vinegar or lemon juice in a liter of water you will have powerful windows, walls and hard floor cleaning solution.

    I also prefer to use natural cleaners to clean my house instead of toxic products. First of all because they are more efficient, second their smelt is not as strong as the toxic cleaners, and third because they cost less!
