Cleaning your house naturally isn’t harder or more expensive than with the use of chemicals. In fact, there are a lot of things you can easily clean naturally with products you probably already have in your cupboard!
What’s also great about natural cleaning products is that it is safe for kids to use. This way they can start helping at an early age while you sit back and enjoy that cup of coffee and magazine (Yeah right, wouldn’t that be nice!)
Here are 4 simple and inexpensive ways to clean your house without chemicals
Clean Dirty Windows
Get sparkling clean windows by cleaning them with a sponge soaked in warm water and white vinegar. To dry them, simply use a piece of newspaper. ( I know, this doesn’t seem to make sense because newspaper ink rubs off so easily on fingers but it works really well on windows!) You can also use a squeegee if you prefer to keep your hands clean 🙂 For stubborn stains, rub the window with an onion cut in half prior to using the water and vinegar mixture.
Brighten Colours and Remove Stains on Your Clothes
The clothes you wear and wash regularly inevitably fades overtime. To give them a little boost, all you need to do is to soak them in a mixture of boiling water and lemon juice. To get rid of a stain, just put the mixture directly on the stain and let dry. Then just put the clothes in the washing machine and voila!!
Get Rid of Bad Odours
To remove odours from the rubbish bin, sprinkle baking soda in the bottom or directly into the bag. You can also place some orange peels or fresh mint leaves in the bottom, and change them weekly. To eliminate odours in the bathroom, pour cinnamon or orange essential oil onto cotton balls, and place them in a small bowl on a shelf.
Give Your Toilet a Thorough Clean
To clean the toilet thoroughly, just pour a cup of baking soda into the toilet and let it soak for 1 hour. Then pour white vinegar around the top of the bowl, leave 10 minutes and scrub with a brush. White vinegar is also good for removing limescale on taps, shower heads and sinks.
