A clean home is the goal of most people, but achieving it isn’t the most enjoyable activity. Today, strong and toxic cleaning products are no longer your only option for proper cleaning. We now have cleaning products that not only smell nice and are environmentally friendly, but there are a number of DIY cleaning solutions. Here are a few of our top DIY choices:
Vinegar – The most versatile natural cleaner is distilled white vinegar, and it should be in everyone’s home. All that is required is to mix it with water or with any of the other items on this list, and you can clean pretty much anything
Baking Soda – this is one of the best choices when you need something that will be more abrasive than a simple liquid, but still soft enough not to scratch a surface.
Hydrogen Peroxide – This liquid is great for bleaching or getting rid of pathogens such as mold, bacteria and even salmonella.
Citrus Fruit – In addition to adding a great, fresh smell to your home, fruits such as lemon, lime and grapefruit can be used to polish, bleach and remove mildew.
Essential Oils – a few drops of an essential oil in an antibacterial solution can add a nice but subtle scent; but, if you have any pets around, use these with caution as they might be harmful to some.
