Homemade Green Cleaning Solutions

A clean home requires regular cleaning but the actual cleaning doesn’t need to be done with expensive commercial cleaners in order to be effective. You can save money and keep the harmful chemicals found in store-bought cleaners away from you home by making your own green cleaning solutions. Read on to learn how to make inexpensive and eco-friendly cleaning solutions at home.

  1. Go to the nearest grocery or hardware store and purchase several empty spray bottles. If you already have spray bottles at home, you don’t need to purchase new ones, just make sure that they have been rinsed thoroughly before using them. It is strongly recommended not to mix different chemicals or commercial cleaners in one bottle without knowing the result of their chemical reaction.
  2. Use baking soda to deodorize your refrigerator. Put an open box of baking soda into the refrigerator overnight to absorb the odours. Baking soda has other uses in cleaning as well, which you can learn from cleaners Barnes.
  3. Full-strength or diluted, vinegar can be used as an all-purpose cleaner on most surfaces with the exception of marble. It not only removes dirt but it also disinfects and deodorizes the surfaces on which it has been used. The good of vinegar is that its smell dissipates once it dries.
  4. Use lemon juice to polish copper and brass pots as well as dishware. Cut a lemon in half and cover one of its halves with baking soda. Use the half with the baking soda to clean countertops and dishes, and to get rid of stains.
  5. Make a powerful all-purpose cleaner using borax. Combine 1 teaspoon of borax and 1 qt. of water  into a spray bottle and use it to clean most surfaces at your home. You can also add a small amount of borax to the washing cycle to boost your detergent cleaning power.
