Many of our cleaning products we use almost daily are as harmful to our health as they are to the planet.
It is best to make some of our own products with materials that are already in our kitchen drawers to protect ourselves, our children / pets and the nature around us.
Vinegar cleans about like a simple all-purpose cleaner. All you have to do is mix vinegar with an equal amount of water. This solution will disinfect and neutralize all odors. It is also an excellent material for cleaning stainless steel surfaces.
Apple cider vinegar
If you add a couple of spoons of baking soda to the apple cider vinegar you can make your bathroom (tiles, sink, faucets, floors, etc.) sparkle. Where there is dirt, simply spread some of the mixture and scrub with a soft cloth.
With soda you can make your sink shine again! Clean it with some soda on a piece of cloth and then wipe it with a dry cloth. It will automatically look like new.
Like vinegar, lemon can be used to clean many areas in your home. It removes salts and soap residues from the bathroom, while it can be used to give shine to copper items. In fact, if you mix the lemon juice with baking soda and vinegar you can create a mixture for cleaning dishes. Lemon is also a natural bleach.
Alcohol can permanently remove markers from the floor or wood. All you need to do is put a small amount on a cotton ball and smear the stain. Alcohol also effectively removes marks from bathroom mirrors, whether it is lacquer, toothpaste or makeup.
Lavender and tea tree essential oils:
These two oils are natural antimicrobials with antiseptic properties, while they have a subtle aroma. Add a few drops to a bottle of water, vinegar and borax and you will have a powerful cleanser whose action can be well compared to the products you buy in the supermarket.
General cleansing product for the house:
Dissolve and mix half a cup of vinegar and 1/4 cup of baking soda in two liters of hot water. The solution is stored for a long time and cleans windows, mirrors, calcium deposits in taps and ceramic tiles. Vinegar is used to remove grease and mold. For fats we can even use lemon juice. Use baking soda as a cleaning powder, and enhance it if necessary by mixing with vinegar.
Instead of toxic air fresheners:
Use herbs or essential oils because they are herbal products that cleanse, disinfect and perfume every corner of the house and some of them like mint lavender and Louisa are among the best insect repellents.
The best for cleaning are:
Grapefruit, lemon, lavender, orange, cypress, louiza and rosemary.
For disinfection the most suitable are:
Grapefruit, tea tree, thyme, lemon, lavender, eucalyptus, bergamot, louiza.
For shine the lemon, the grapefruit, for polishing the cedar, the sandalwood, the cypress and for the dazzling white the sage.
The best deodorants and fragrances are:
All citrus fruits, rose, geranium, lavender, rosemary, eucalyptus and marjoram. You can use them either in infusions (boil the herbs, drain them and use water) or by adding 4-5 drops of essential oils in a liter of water.
To exterminate cockroaches:
Put baking soda along with a little sugar on a small saucer and put it in the cupboards, behind the fridge or where they frequent.
Another method to repel ants and annoying insects is to pour lavender essential oil or plain vinegar where they frequent.
