You Can Clean Your Home Without Chemicals
Believe it or not, those chemically-crafted cleaning products that you purchase at the grocery store aren’t the safest to use. For starters, they can diminish your indoor air quality. And, over time, it can even take a toll on your well-being.
However, there is an alternative that still gets the job done without the harmful additives — cue natural cleaning products. Not only are these gentle on many different surfaces, but many of these “green” solutions can already be found within the cabinets of your home.
How Can I Naturally Clean My Home?
Clean Windows with Vinegar
One of the best ways to help your windows glimmer and shine is to use vinegar! To do this properly, you’ll want to:
Mix one part of vinegar with two cups of water.
Next, put the mixture into a spray bottle.
Once complete, spray your windows and wipe away any excess cleaning solution with a microfiber cloth.
You can even use this natural solution to clean glass shower doors and mirrors in your home.
Clean Brass, Copper, or Steel with Lemon Juice
Do you have any copper, brass, or steel features in your home? If so, consider cleaning them with a mixture of salt and lemon juice. Once the two are mixed, take an old, soft-bristled brush — such as a toothbrush — and gently work it onto the metal fixture's surface. Within seconds, you’ll notice a cleaner, more shimmering surface than what you had before!
Baking Soda to Deodorize Carpets
Are you looking to give a carpet or rug in your home a little extra TLC? If so, consider sprinkling baking soda on it. Once the baking soda has sat for a few minutes, pick it all up using a vacuum cleaner. Once you’ve run the vacuum over the rug or carpet, it will look much cleaner, but any lingering odors that were there before will now be a thing of the past!
