Families will prefer eco-friendly home cleaning products to protect their little ones and pets from harmful ingestion of chemicals.Some make the choice for the sake of the environment. Commonly available items at home form effective cleaning products. Generally, before trying any formulations at home, use a little of it on a hidden area first. Here are some common formulations.
2 table spoons of Baking soda.
Scrub on tiles and bath tubs with a wet scrubber. It also removes grease spots, oil streaks and color marks from walls.
4 table spoons baking soda + 8 table spoons vinegar + 2 liters of water.
Baking soda naturally scours, deodorizes and softens water.White vinegar cuts grease and odor and is also a good stain remover.This mix is a general all-purpose cleaner.Bathroom tiles and windows stains can be cleaned using this formulation.
1 table spoon of salt + 5 lemons.
Coarse salt makes it easy to scrub off dirt while lime juice’s acidic nature gets rid of common bacteria and rust.Leaving salt on rust and soaking it with lemon juice for 2-3 hours gets it off easily.
2 table spoons of white vinegar + 1 liter of warm water.
This formula cleans windows effectively.Use old, newspapers that are not colored to rub the formula on stained windows. Use non colored newspapers to clean the windows with the mix.Clean the windows when the air outside is cooler.Hot air causes the vinegar to cloud the windows. The formula is effective on removing wall stickers, tags and adhesive wall papers.
Equal measure of vinegar and baking soda + boiling water.
Accumulation of dirt on a drain for a long while might not be easily cleared out by the plunger.Put the baking soda in the drain, then the vinegar to cause a chemical reaction.Next, pour the boiling water after 20minutes lapse to clear the residue. Use warm water for plastic drains to avoid melting them down.
Sodium Borate + Sodium Carbonate.
Mix sodium borate and sodium carbonate in equal parts to form dish washer soap.Avoid cleaning aluminum utensils with this mix as washing soda corrodes it.
Baking soda, citrus peels, dried fragrance herbs.
These are used separately to deodorize the air and rid of musky smells in the house.When citrus peels are put in the vacuum bag, the oven or microwave, they leave refreshing scents when put on. Baking soda is sprinkled lightly on the carpet and rugs to remove damp smells. Dried scented herbs can be kept in house corners.
Who would think bananas could help out with the cleaning too!Blend the peels into paste with little water.Use the paste to gently remove tarnish from your silver pieces of jewelry. Dip them in water to get the paste off and polish with a cotton cloth.
