We all want our house to be neat and tidy, which includes cleaning our surfaces until they’re sparkly. But, when you use many commercially available cleansers, the term, “A floor so clean you could eat off of it,” becomes a bit dubious. True, many store-bought products do the trick when it comes to making your house smell good and your appliances shine. But, they come with the added side effect of chemical additives that are not only dangerous for humans, but also detrimental to the planet.
Let’s face it, while these products come with the bonus of convenience, the larger health and environmental price we pay make it far less of a bargain. Plus, the ingredients list for natural products are much more minimal with their components often coming in at highly affordable price points. Really, as long as you have salt, baking soda, vinegar, water, essential oils and a few other staples you can make virtually anything!
Just be sure to label all of your cleaning solutions once you’ve made them and, even though the ingredients are natural and far friendlier toward the environment, you still want to keep them out of the reach of children and pets. It’s also always best practice to try a little dab of any cleaning solution in a small, inconspicuous place on your appliance or fixtures first as variations in materials can cause discoloration or scratching with any new cleaning method, commercial or natural alike. Better safe than sorry! Now let’s get to brewing up some all-natural cleaning supplies to brighten up our homes.
