House cleaning can be boring, can take lots of time and can be expensive, although it usually is much cheaper to do it yourself than to hire professionals. Not only this, but the fact is that many of the cleaning detergents that you use seem to contain poisonous ingredients. However, there are solutions. You can purchase eco-friendly cleaning agents, produced by natural materials only. Still, they also can cost lots of money. But there is a solution to this as well. You can make the cleaning agents that you use. They are not less effective than most of the conventional cleaners and usually they cost less. Furthermore, you do not need chemistry of physics knowledge to make them. Just mixing ingredients will do.
In this article we will give you simple tips for how to produce homemade detergents that will harm neither the nature nor you. All of them involve ingredients, which the ordinary household already posses. They are degradable, which means that they will not hurt the environment.
All of the recipes involve maybe an unexpected ingredient – vinegar. It really is of great help when it comes to green cleaning.
You can easily clean your windows without a cleaning agent from the supermarket by just mixing equal portions of water and vinegar and filling the substance into a spray bottle.
The litter bin and the area surrounding it usually get smelly over time, even if you take care to throw you litter regularly. If you want to get rid of the smell just use half a cup of vinegar and the same amount of washing soda, dissolved into a small amount of water. Brush the area and the inside of your trash bin and leave it like this for about 5 minutes. It takes some time for the substance to take effect. Then wash the bin with water.
When we cook usually we leave greasy spots on the oven and on the dishes and if they are not washed immediately they are very hard to remove later. Here vinegar can also be of help. It literally dissolves the grease. First pour distilled white vinegar on the greasy areas and leave it like this until it dissolves the stain. Then wash with water.
Vinegar is also very effective for cleaning all sorts of stained or tarnished metal surfaces. For the tarnish removal use vinegar and small amount of salt. Clean metal surfaces with tartar sauce and vinegar, by rubbing them. When you cover the entire dirty area with the mixture leave it to dry. After that wash with water.
You can clean old coins using vinegar too. Leave them in a bowl of vinegar overnight or for several hours – the dirt will literally be dissolved.
