Eco Friendly Cleaning Safe For The Environment

Many of today’s popular cleaning products are harmful to the environment. Although they may help to keep your home clean, these products are often not the best for the Earth. They can be very harsh and abrasive on the environment. Even worse, they are often not safe for children. The following are some suggestions for eco-friendly cleaning that will help you to keep your space clean without compromising the Earth or your health.

Cleaning-Your-Home-the-Frugal-Way VinegarEco-Friendly Cleaning Products
You can always purchase eco-friendly cleaning products. These types of cleaners are becoming more common, and you can usually find them online or at specialty stores. Recyclebank has some great options. Many people find these types of products to be an effective and safe alternative to traditional cleaners.
white-vinegarVinegar
Vinegar is a great product that can be used to help you clean your home. The following are some helpful ways to make the most of this common household substance:

Mix vinegar with water to clean your mirrors.

Use a 40/60 mixture of vinegar and hot water to clean the tub. When you are cleaning, try to let the solution sit in the tub for approximately 15 minutes. The smell of vinegar will go away after you rinse out the solution.

Fill vinegar in a plastic bag and wrap the bag around your showerheads. This technique can get rid of soap scum and other build up in this area.

After your shower, spray a mixture of water and vinegar on your plastic shower curtains. This helps prevent mildew build up.
Mop your kitchen floors with a mixture of vinegar and hot water.

Rubbing Alcohol
Rubbing alcohol is also an effective cleaning solution. You can mix this product with baby wipes to clean your countertops and faucets. You can also spray rubbing alcohol in your shower daily to minimize the build up of germs and help your shower to stay clean.
Lemons for cleaningLemon
Lemon is one of nature’s best cleaning products. It can help to remove hard water stains and is also a great tool for cleaning sticky surfaces.

Furthermore, if you want sparkling pots and pans, you can use water, salt, and one half of a lemon to scrub them clean. This technique often works better than other cleaners.
Baking SodaBaking Soda
One of the most effective products you can use to keep your home clean is baking soda. It will help you scrub your showers, clean your toilets, sinks, bathtubs, and kitchen. Baking soda is even useful on stainless steel.

If you are tired of using abrasive cleaners with harsh chemicals, try these eco-friendly alternatives. You probably already have many of them around your home. They are all low-cost and eco-friendly options to help you with your cleaning efforts.
