How To Make Your Own Eco-Friendly House Cleaning Products.
Families will prefer eco-friendly home cleaning products to protect their little ones and pets from harmful ingestion of chemicals.Others choose them for the environment’s well-being.Many available products at home form great house cleaning products when mixed in the right quantities.It is safe to first try out the formula on a small hidden area before going full throttle. Below are some of the common cleaning agents found at home.
2 table spoons of Baking soda.
Use it with a wet sponge to scrub stains on bathroom tubs and tiles. Baking soda is also good on grease, oil and color stained walls.
1/4 cup baking soda + 1/2 cup vinegar + 2 liters of water.
Baking soda is a natural scourer, deodorizer and water softener.White vinegar on the other hand is a good stain remover and also cuts grease and odor.This mix is a general all-purpose cleaner.Window stains and tile marks are scrubbed off using this formula.
1 table spoon of salt + 5 lemons.
Lemon juice is acidic in nature helping to get rid of bacteria and rust while the coarseness of salt helps to scrub off.Leaving salt on rust and soaking it with lemon juice for 2-3 hours gets it off easily.
1/8 cup of white vinegar + 4 cups warm water.
This formula cleans windows effectively.Use old, newspapers that are not colored to rub the formula on stained windows. Use non colored newspapers to clean the windows with the mix.When using this mix, preferably clean the windows when it’s cooler.Warm air causes formation of a cloudy appearance on the windows as the vinegar evaporates. You can also use this formula to remove stickers on the walls, tags on new items and old wall papers.
Equal measure of vinegar and baking soda + boiling water.
There are times when the plunger just won’t work for that clogged drain.Pour the baking soda in the drain first followed by the vinegar to cause a reaction.Next, pour the boiling water after 20minutes lapse to clear the residue. Warm water is preferred for drains made of plastic to avoid melting them down.
Sodium Borate + Sodium Carbonate.
Mix sodium borate and sodium carbonate in equal parts to form dish washer soap.Avoid cleaning aluminum utensils with this mix as washing soda corrodes it.
Citrus peels, baking soda, dried scented herbs.
They can be used separately to mildly scent the home.When citrus peels are put in the vacuum bag, the oven or microwave, they leave refreshing scents when put on. Baking soda is sprinkled lightly on the carpet and rugs to remove damp smells. Dried fragrance flowers and herbs can be left in corners.
Would you ever have thought bananas could clean too?Make a paste of the banana peels with little water through blending them.Now use the paste to rub the tarnish from your silver jewelry.Once done, clean the jewelry with water and polish with a cotton cloth.
