Eco-Friendly Home Cleaning Hacks
No one likes a dirty home! The dishes are piling up, the dust is like an extra blanket and you don’t know where to start! Don’t stress! Take it one day at a time and just do your best.
First start by examining your cleaning products. There are various cleaning products in the supermarket, but most are not safe for the little ones and can have detrimental effects on our endocrine system in the long run. How do you make a green cleaning product? Here are my top 5 eco-friendly home cleaning hacks.
1. Lemon Juice!
Lemon juice is also a great solution to clean and refresh your microwave. If you can’t stand stains on mirrors or windows, you’ll love making a mixture of water and a few tablespoons of lemon juice in a spray bottle. Spray and wipe off to clean and get rid of stains in seconds.
2. Basil Oil!
Dilute a few drops of essential basil oil in water and used it to clean the floors of your home and also the grout of your tiles. It smells fresh and clean too!
3. Make your own Rags!
Grab an old T-shirt and turn it into a useful cleaning rag. Instead of using an old towel as a refillable sweeper or mop, cut a T-shirt into a large square and use it as a rag or duster.
4. Baking Soda!
For porcelain, enamel or cast iron sinks, sprinkle a large amount of baking soda or washing powder on a dry sink and clean with a damp, non-abrasive pad.
You can clean almost any object you have at home with vinegar, baking soda, peroxide, castile soap, etc. This combination of lemon juice, water, vinegar and essential oils is a useful cleansing hack that is considered harmless for your children. The great thing about this cleaning hack is that your children can help out at home without having to worry about harmful chemicals.
Bonus: easy refrigerator hack!
When cleaning the outside of your stainless steel refrigerator, use undiluted vinegar to avoid streaks. You can also try making an all-purpose cleaner by combining vinegar with a few tablespoons of castile soap, 10 drops of tea tree oil and 80% water. This is also helpful when cleaning up sticky floors from experiments gone wrong 😑.
