Eco-Friendly Ways to Clean Your Home
Do you want to reduce your impact on the planet while doing your household chores?
Make your house clean and safe with these simple eco-friendly cleaning tips.
Make your own all-purpose spray for most surfaces in your home by using water and white vinegar in a 1:1 ratio. This is especially good for cleaning windows and mirrors, leaving them streak-free and shiny!
Clean your microwave using a lemon and water. Pour 1/2 cup of water into a bowl. Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice from half the lemon into the water. Add the lemon halves to the bowl. Microwave for 3 minutes and then leave to stand for 5 minutes. Remove the bowl and wipe clean the inside and turntable.
Clean your floors using baking soda. Mix 1/2 cup of vinegar with 1/2 cup of baking soda. Add a tablespoon of hot water and then use the mixture in water, in place of chemicals.
Use olive oil to clean stainless steel. Firstly, remove any grease with vinegar then use a little olive oil on a cloth and use circular motions to clean the stainless steel appliance.
Steam cleaners can disinfect and sanitise many surfaces and fabrics at the same time without the need for any chemicals. You can be rest assured that your home will be allergen and bacteria free too.
Switch cleaning products. There are so many eco-friendly cleaning products on the market nowadays that work just as well, if not better, than chemical alternatives. Some popular brands include Method, ecover, Dr Bronner's and Ashley & Co.
Make your own essential oil room sprays and avoid harsh chemical air fresheners. Add 3 or 4 drops of your favourite essential oil to a cup of water and add to a spray bottle. You can also scent your home naturally by adding some orange slices and cinnamon sticks to a pan of simmering water.
