Safe Ingredients You Can Use In Your Home Cleaning Routine

 

Green cleaning is not a myth. There are plenty of eco-friendly household ingredients that you can use alone or in combination for an even better outcome. Truth be told, in many cases, you would do perfectly fine with a combination of water, baking soda, soap and vinegar. You only need to consider how to best utilise them. In this guide, we will cover a few of the most popular household ingredients that you can clean with. 

 

  • Baking soda – baking soda is one of those ingredients that people have trusted for centuries, and it is for a good reason. Baking soda is one of the things you always have and it is a versatile tool for many household cleaning tasks. Not only does it clean well, but also softens water and deodorises. Use it to address grout stains the bathroom, or burnt-on deposits in the oven. Mix with your favourite essential oil and you get a super solution for the carpet. Simply spread all over the place, let it sit for 15 minutes and then vacuum. You will be quite happy with the end result. 

 

  • Alcohol – apart from its usual use, alcohol is a great disinfectant. For instance, vodka makes for a great odour remover, while other forms of ethanol you can safely utilise in various cleaners and disinfectants. 

 

  • Lemon juice – lemon juice is among the strongest food acids. You should definitely take advantage of its properties and use it to sanitise surfaces around your home. Not only does it effectively remove bacteria, but also leaves a pleasant citrus scent, which everyone loves. 

 

  • White vinegar – many believe this is the champion among household cleaning solutions. It can cut grease with ease and also remove mildew, mould and stains. It is also quite effective at removing musty stains from your washing machine and dishwasher. Pour a cup of it and run a short cycle. 

 

  • Vegetable/olive oil – you will really want to use this solution for homemade wood polishes. If you have wooden furniture in your home, don’t hesitate to try out a wood polish with one of these oils. 

 

  • Hydrogen peroxide – this wounds disinfectant is actually also a nice cleaning solution if you know how to use it. It is a good product for your kitchen and bathroom with its light bleach effect. Thanks to its properties, you can remove some of the stubborn stains that grout develops, and also on some of the fabrics as well. Just remember to handle it with care. 
  • Cornstarch – you can use cornstarch to do some window cleaning, as well as polish furniture. You can also include it in the process of shampooing rugs and carpets, in order to get a wonderful result. 

 

  • Citrus solvent – in order to restore a paintbrush, you can use citrus solvent. You have to be careful though. The citrus solvent may cause some eye, skin and lung irritations, especially if you have some chemical sensitivities. 

 

  • Oxygen bleach – this kind of bleach is made from sodium carbonate or peroxide, making it ideal for whitening fabrics and removing stains. Just make sure you check out the ingredients, as many brands contain additional benign chemicals. 

 

  • Soap – soap that is unscented or is in liquid form, is usually biodegradable and cleans most things. If you want an excellent example of a cleaning ingredient, castile soap is the one to go for. 

 

As you can see, there are plenty of household ingredients you can use in your cleaning efforts. It is up to you to make the most of them in your cleaning routine. Learn more from this lifestyle blog.
