As winter comes to a close, it’s time to embrace spring and all its warm goodness. There is something that comes with this season that not many people are fond of – spring cleaning. This is the time when you dust away all those cobwebs, de-clutter your home, clean the gutters, and prepare your home for warmer months.
Cleaning involves some time and effort, but it also calls for many disinfectants, detergents, polishers, and cleaners. All this costs a lot of money and these products contain tons of harmful chemicals. You would not want to expose your family to these potent products. There are many common non-toxic household items you could use to keep your home clean and fresh. Not only are these super effective, they will also save you a bunch of money.
- White vinegar
Vinegar has been used for a countless number of years as an effective cleaning agent. It has strong antimicrobial properties and also helps remove strong odors. For an all-purpose cleaner, all you have to do is mix one part white vinegar in one part water. This solution is ideal for cleaning mirrors, counter-tops, shower heads, bathroom fixtures, windows, and even carpets. Vinegar is also extremely effective in treating grout and keeping mildew at bay.
- Baking soda
Another versatile common household cleaning product is baking soda. You can use this magical compound to remove grime from counters, clean cookware, and remove stubborn stains. It works as a mild abrasive, removing oils and tough grime. Baking soda can be used on chrome surfaces, stainless steel, and ceramic.
This fruit is a natural disinfectant and deodorizer. You could use undiluted lemon juice to clean stubborn grime and mineral deposits or you could dilute it for an all-purpose cleaner. Lemon juice is also good for polishing metals. You could also spray diluted lemon juice to freshen up a room.
- Hydrogen peroxide
This solution has excellent antimicrobial properties, which makes it the best cleaning product for bathrooms and kitchens. It brightens tiles and counters while removing unpleasant odors. You can also disinfect counter-tops, cutting boards, the refrigerator, and dishwasher with hydrogen peroxide.
- Cleaning cloths
Microfiber cleaning cloths are the best investment for spring cleaning. These fabrics do not leave fibers behind, so your counter-tops, plates, mirrors, and windows are spotless. They are versatile and can be used anywhere. Microfiber cloths are slightly more expensive, but they are long lasting and durable.
Don’t waste money on unnecessary toxic cleaning products. Use these commonly found items from your home to make spring cleaning and much easier and safer experience.
