Keeping your home neat and tidy is a lot of work. You have to make sure that you are using effective products (most of the time, harmful chemicals) to make sure that you remove all the stain and grimes. It is overwhelming, especially when you have kids. You want to make sure that you use a safe product as much as possible but still can effectively clean your home. You will find a lot of guides and articles about natural home cleaning, but you can find it inside your cabinet or your kitchen.
Here are the usual ingredients that you commonly have in your home:
Salt works as an effective yet gentle scrubbing agent. Salt serves as a catalyst for other ingredients, such as vinegar, to boost cleaning and deodorizing action. For a basic soft scrub, make a paste with lots of salt, baking soda and dish soap and use on appliances, enamel, porcelain, etc. You can use it as stain removal, degreaser, clean sink drains, and even de-ice the sidewalks and driveways.
It is one of the basic supply that we have in the kitchen. It is no surprise that it can be an effective ingredient for cleaning. The high acidity level of vinegar helps release mineral sediments, such as lime and rust, and melt soap scum due to their alkalinity, so it is best for bathroom and kitchen cleaning. It is also great for removing oil on ovens, cooktops, stoves, and grills, and it quickly removes wax build-up off of wood floors. Also, a vinegar soak makes it easy to eliminate stains, such as coffee and tea, from kitchen basins, cups, and coffee makers. It is also helpful for deodorizing and removing kitchen and bathroom odors as a simple spritz of a vinegar-water solution will prove. And it is also be added to the laundry rinse cycle as a fabric softener.
It is usually found in your medical kit or cabinet as an antiseptic solution. It is a great way to disinfect your home instead of using bleach and other chemical cleaners. It is a natural disinfectant that produces bubbles when it touches an enzyme called catalase. Catalase is found in most cells, like blood cells and bacteria. Those bubbles are a result of contact with catalase that releases oxygen gas.
Hydrogen peroxide is an effective ingredient to sanitize your home. Use it to wash your cleaning supplies like dirty dish scrubbers, rags, sponges, and toilet brushes. All you have to do is spray some hydrogen peroxide directly on the items, let it bubble up, and repeat. If something is filthy, it can be soaked. Be careful in using this, because it can only be mix with water.
