Top 5 Natural Cleaning Products
Use Natural Products to Clean Your Home
Many people are turning to natural products today to clean their home. You probably already have most of these items in your pantry. It’s easy to clean everything in your home with many of these products. Who knows…you might even come up with your own “recipe” or cleaning product!
1. Lemons: cut one in half then sprinkle it with baking soda, and use it to clean dishes, countertops, stains on hard surfaces and more. Lemon juice dissolves soap scum and hard water spots on shower doors and windows, too. Mix in a spray bottle with a little water and spray on surfaces. Let set, then respray and wipe with a clean cloth or paper towel. You’ll probably need to follow up with a vinegar and water spray afterwards to remove any streaks.
2. Essential Oils: Tea Tree Oil and Peppermint Oil are great products to clean your home. Tea Tree Oil will remove scuffs from floors when you place 2-4 drops on the scuff, wipe excess with a soft cloth then rub in distilled vinegar for extra cleaning and shining. Peppermint oil can be used in any cleaning mixture for a deodorizer and to give your cleaning solution a bit more power.
3. Cooking Oils: Cooking oils will help you remove paint from your skin. They can also be used to clean cast iron cookware by adding 1 tsp. coarse salt with a bit of oil, then rub the cookware with a cleaning cloth. You can also use cooking oil to remove scuffs from shoes by rubbing on the oil, then buffing it off with a soft cloth.
4. White Distilled Vinegar: Vinegar has many uses around the house. Use equal parts vinegar and equal parts water in a spray bottle to clean stainless steel appliances, countertops and your bathroom. You can mop in vinegar and water, and you can use it to freshen drains in your home. Equal parts vinegar and water makes a great window and glass cleaning solution, too, and it will remove hard water stains from your outdoor windows and your glass shower doors!
5. Baking Soda: Baking soda will remove floor scuffs and stains from sinks. Use it in place of scouring powder. It also freshens drains when you pour some down the drains and follow with hot water. Place open boxes in your refrigerator to keep it smelling fresh, and mix it with other cleaning solutions and laundry soap for an extra burst of cleaning power and freshness.
