Home Cleaning with Natural Ingredients
Monday, September 07, 2009
Most of our houseproud customers have regular fortnightly cleans with our environmentally friendly citrus based products, so they don’t need to spend money on cleaning products. Switching to green cleaning does take some adjustment. Typically cleaning products seem to achieve instant results with minimal effort. But this is mainly due to these products being dangerously strong while their toxic fumes are being inhaled and their chemicals are damaging your skin. Natural cleaning products do work just as well; a bit more elbow grease may be needed but that will save an expensive gym workout!
If you have the items below listed in your cupboard, you can clean just about anything.
Bicarbonate of soda A good cleaner, stain remover and deodoriser
Lemons Bleach and disinfectant
Salt Abrasive cleaner especially when used with lemon juice
Cream of Tartar Stain remover
Eucalyptus Oil Disinfectant, natural insect repellent and stain remover
Glycerin Stain Remover
Pure Soap Washing powders for laundry and liquids for the kitchen
Soda Water Emergency stain remover
Vinegar Fights mould, disinfectant, bleach, deodoriser, de-greaser
