We all want a clean and tidy home. Most people use chemical cleaning agents and don’t realize the damage they are doing. They spray glass cleaner on their windows and mirrors, multi-surface cleaners on their countertops, sinks, and tubs, and furniture polish/ spray on their wooden surfaces. That’s a lot of different chemicals!
The harmful health effects these cleaning agents have affect not only you but also everyone in your home. This includes pets and babies! Cleaning our homes should make it a safer and healthier environment for us, not other way around.
Hopefully this E-book will help teach you the true dangers of chemical cleaners and what you can use as substitutes.
Here are some cool natural cleaning uses for common household items:
- Remove paint from skin: Rub olive oil onto your skin, then let it sit for 5 minutes before washing off with soap.
- Shine stainless steel: Pour a little olive oil onto a cotton swab and buff your stainless steel surface.
- Clean wood furniture: Mix 2 cups olive oil with 1 cup lemon juice, then you can use it to clean your furniture using a soft cloth.
- Clean pots: Sprinkle baking soda into the bottom of the affected pot or pan, then pour hot water on top of the baking soda, let soak overnight then wash.
- Prevent clogged drains: Pour ¼ cup baking soda down your sink drains weekly.
- Save a Fabric that has been burned: Use white vinegar to remove light stains on fabrics due to charring. Rub a small amount of white vinegar on the fabric, then wipe it clean with a cloth.
- Remove stains from coffee and teacups: Scrub equal parts white vinegar and salt (or baking soda) into the stain and wash with water.
- Scrub bathtub grout: Use lemon juice and an old toothbrush to clean the grout in the bathtub.
- Remove grease stains from clothing: Rub lemon juice into the stain on the clothing and let it sit overnight, then wash.
- Remove hard water stains on shower doors: Use a half cut lemon to clean the glass shower doors and remove water stains.
- Remove stains from marble: Combine lemon juice and salt into a paste and softly scrub the stain. Rinse well after the stain is gone.
- Clean your Microwave: Combine 2 cups of water with ¼ cup of lemon juice in a microwave-safe glass dish. Then, cook on high for eight minutes. The steam will loosen food particles on the interiors, then just wipe off.
- Remove a wine stain: Blot up as much of the wine as possible from the tablecloth, then pour a pile of salt over the stain. Soak the tablecloth in cold water before washing.
- Remove perspiration stains: Make a mixture of 4 tablespoons of salt to one quart of hot water and use a sponge to dab the stained fabric until the stain has been removed.
