Living in a clean environment is as important as in a healthy, non-toxic one. Be kind to yourself, your family, and the environment, and consider following a natural cleaning routine.
A lot of store bought cleaning products tend to work aggressively, and contain harsh chemicals which might irritate your skin or eyes, particularly if you have asthma or are prone to allergies. In addition, they have negative consequences to the environment. Fortunately, natural cleaning is an easy solution to that problem. You can clean your entire home using natural ingredients, such as vinegar, baking soda, or lemon juice.
Discover these great natural cleaning tips shared by SPIC AND SPAN. experts to keep yourself and your family safe from risky side effects of harsh detergents.
Swap anti-bacterial cleaners for plain white vinegar
Deep cleaning and making sure your home is germ-free (particularly kitchen and bathroom) is essential once in a while. At the same time, however, multiple studies have shown that overusing antibacterial products may cause the microbes to develop immunity. The solution is quite simple –a mixture of white vinegar and water can serve the same purpose. This is a great idea to clean the bathroom, tiles, and sinks.
Use baking soda to get rid of persistent odors
Baking soda is known for its odor absorbing properties, and is a great way to make your fridge smell fresh at all times. You can put some baking soda on a plate and simply put it on one of the shelves inside the fridge. It can be also mixed with water and used as a surface cleaner.
Refresh surfaces with lemon juice
Lemon juice and white vinegar share a lot of applications, but the former might be preferable due to its more pleasant smell. It is really effective in removing persistent odors, and can be used in the kitchen in multiple ways. For example, you can rub some lemon juice on your cutting board to get rid of food smells and disinfect it.
Mixed with water, lemon juice will help deodorize the inside of garbage cans. You can simply rub it on its surface, rinse it off after a while, and leave it to dry.
Shop for cleaning supplies consciously
Even though the natural ingredients listed above are super effective, it might take a bit more time to prepare and mix them. Luckily, nowadays there are a lot of environmental-friendly options in any price range available at the stores. While shopping for cleaning supplies, be sure to read the labels thoroughly – look for eco certificates and transparent brand policies. It’s an additional plus if they’re not tested on animals. You can even do your research at home in order to be able to make the best decision!
