Three Surprising, All-Natural Cleaning Products

Written by 

Even if you use maids services, you might find a need to clean up an unexpected mess thanks to muddy shoes, a leaky pitcher, or a smelly disposal.

Here are a few environmentally-friendly things you probably already have  that are great for house cleaning!

Vinegar (Mix equal parts water and vinegar). 

  • Disinfectant. Vinegar is a natural disinfectant that kills germs on all surfaces. This is especially helpful in the bathrooms and kitchens, where floors, toilets, bathtubs, sinks, and counters might be harboring germs. Avoid using on marble, and mix with water to ensure the safety of your grout!
  • Leaves no odor. If you worry about your home smelling like vinegar, you need not fear! When the vinegar dries, the odor will, too; leaving nothing but a clean surface and a fresh smell.
  • Fabric softener. Put a little bit of vinegar in your laundry, and it will act as a softener for all of your clothes. Keep in mind you might want to test some of your darker or more sensitive items for color fastness before adding it to your load.

Lemon (Use the juice—or the whole lemon!).

  • Freshens disposals. The food you sent down the sink last night might be coming back up to your nostrils. If this is the case, take a lemon, cut it into wedges, and send it down the disposal for a clean, fresh smell that will fill your whole kitchen.
  • Stain fighter. Lemon comes with some natural bleaching tendencies, so you can use it to fight stains. Always test it on the surface or item you intend to clean to make sure colors won’t bleed.

Baking soda (Use it in the box or sprinkle it around).

  • Deodorizer. Put an open box of baking soda wherever you worry about strange smells, like the refrigerator or the laundry room. Also, sprinkle it in the bottom of a trash can to keep the odor from your garbage from surprising you when you enter your kitchen.
  • Dish soak. Have some food burnt onto the bottom of a pan? Sprinkle some baking soda in the bottom of the pan and add some warm water. Let soak for a while (overnight is best), and then wash like normal.

It’s great to know that you have everything you need for those surprise housekeeping tasks right in your own kitchen cabinets!
