Natural Cleaning Products
Do you like to save money? Do you want to use fewer chemicals? Then you may want to look in your kitchen.
I am trying to wean myself from purchasing chemicals. There are a few products that I am beginning to use straight from my kitchen to use to clean my kitchen and around my apartment.
Distilled white vinegar is great when diluted a bit with water and it cuts through soap scum in the shower. I use it undiluted in the toilet to help with any of the mineral deposits along the water line. I also run it through my coffee maker to clean it of the same mineral deposits. (Run another full pot of water after the vinegar to remove the vinegar completely from the coffee maker.)
Lemons are great to remove the stains on a countertop, by rubbing a cut lemon over the stain. For stubborn stains, squeeze the juice of a lemon on the stain and let sit for about 20 minutes or more.
Baking soda is a good abrasive and cuts through grease and grime. Mix it into a paste before you scrub, or sprinkle directly onto the area.
Baking soda is also good for animal urine or feces. Remove any solids or blot up excess liquid. Then sprinkle it onto the area and scrub. It will help to neutralize the odor. Once dry, vacuum up.
These are just a few inexpensive ways to use natural ingredients to clean your home. I am sure there are others I do not know about yet.
