Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on commercial brands you can nurture your holistic side and keep these 5 staples handy to tackle any cleaning job. Home builder, Stanley Homes, has compiled a quick list to share with their loyal readers to get you on your way to a cleaner, safer- for- the- environment, custom built home!
- Baking soda
- White vinegar
- Olive oil
- Lemon juice
- Hydrogen peroxide
Baking soda is a great deodorizer, but did you know it also acts as a green cleaning and brightening abrasive? This is gentle enough to use on your custom built granite countertops, or you can dust bathroom and other kitchen surfaces with it and rub into a paste with a wet cloth, then rinse and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
White vinegar is slightly acidic so it helps in dissolving grease, soap scum and lime. Mix 1/4 to 1/2 cup of vinegar with water in a bucket or spray bottle and use it to clean everything from windows and mirrors to toilets and floors. Add newspaper for a streak free clean! Combine vinegar with lemon juice or olive oil to make cleaning products that leave a fresh, natural scent behind when the job is done.
You can also use 1 cup of olive oil and 1/2 cup of lemon juice in a spray bottle, mist onto a soft cloth and polish wood furniture the natural way.
Keep a spray bottle filled with a peroxide and water mixture near the washing machine; spritz spots and rinse with clean water before starting a load. If you don’t have hydrogen peroxide in the house, or need to safely remove stains from colored fabrics, try club soda or diluted vinegar instead.
