Somewhere, sometime, we were brainwashed and convinced that we need the most powerful chemicals and toxins to prevent germs. Commercials household cleaning products boast that “kills all bacteria”. But why keeping the cleanliness filling our homes with health hazardous substances?
Stains cleaners, bleach, floor cleaning solutions and some laundry detergents can raise excessively mostly for children the risk of allergies. To avoid that we recommend you to make your own natural cleaning products. Here are top 6 natural ingredients that can clean almost anything:
1. Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda): rubbing, whitening
Use baking soda to eliminate odors and to whiten. A paste of baking soda and water can help to whiten sinks and baths, and a box of baking soda in the refrigerator or bathroom cabinets help the absorption of odors.
2. Beeswax: wood polishing
You can forget about the oily furniture products in favor of the natural beeswax. Find a local breeder and support your local economy!
3. Hydrogen Peroxide: disinfectant, stains removal
Hydrogen peroxide (hydrogen peroxide) is a powerful disinfectant. To kill mildew, combine baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to create a paste, apply it to the mold and let it sit for a few minutes before cleaning.
4. Lemon: removes stains and smells
Lemons are an excellent solution to remove odors from the kitchen. Pass half a lemon over a dirty cutting board and will remove the heavy odors such as onion or fish. Lemon juice add more power to the general cleaning solutions.
5. White vinegar: disinfection, stain removal
White vinegar is the cleaning power source. Disinfecting and odor absorbent, vinegar is a product desirable to get rid of germs that haunt certain places such as kitchen tables / counter tops, door handles and telephones.
6. Essential oils of plants: non-chemical scents
Although there are no chemicals, pure essential oils are strong. Always do a test by smell before buying to make sure you are not sensitive to vapor and handle the pure essential oils with caution. A few drops of essential oil can add antibacterial and anti-fungal power to cleaning solutions. More important? It leaves a fresh scent. Buy pure essential oils, undiluted stored in dark brown or blue containers. Preserve them in dark places.
