Spring is in the air. So, it is time to clean your home. If you are tired of wondering whether your cleaning products are safe for pets or kids, this article is for you. Here are our top 5 suggestions for an all-natural home spring cleaning.
#1. Use White Vinegar for Cleaning Your Clothes
Did you know that distilled white vinegar helps break down soap residues on towels, clothing, and sheets? This is so because it contains acetic acid. If you want to enjoy these benefits, add a cup of white vinegar next time you are about to turn on the washing machine.
#2. Use Baking Soda and Vinegar to Clean Your Oven Racks
Baking soda and vinegar is a well-known combo when it comes to cleaning your oven racks. So, if you are interested in sanitizing your house naturally, follow these steps.
First, spray the oven racks liberally with distilled white vinegar.
Second, pour baking soda all over the oven racks.
Next, let sit for 10 minutes and cover with hot water.
After you wait for another 10 minutes, remove grime by using a scrub pad
#3. Make Your Own Soft Scrub Cleaner for Kitchen and Bathroom
If you like DIY solutions for a completely clean home, then this idea is for you. Create your own soft scrub cleaner and use it to clean any sinks, dishes, pans, pots, and bathtubs.
The mixture contains 1 cup baking soda, 1/4 cup water, 2 tablespoons Castile soap, as well as 15 drops of lemon or orange essential oil. Mix the ingredients until you get a cake icing texture. Then simply store your cleaner in an airtight container.
#4. Use a Natural Floor Cleaner
No one likes tile flooring that is full of dirt, grime, or mould. Nevertheless, this does not mean that you need to use cleaning chemicals. There is a natural alternative.
You can enjoy your cleaner home by mixing warm water (11/2 cups), baking soda (1 tablespoon), and vinegar (1/4 cup). Next, pour the cleaner into a plastic spray bottle and spray it onto a mop or a microfiber cloth.
