Non-Toxic Household Cleaning Alternatives

When it comes to cleaning these days, everyone wants their home and business to be squeaky clean. However, most of the things you find in the stores these days have harsh chemicals included in them. No one wants to use chemicals because, not only can they make you and your family sick, but these chemicals can make your pets sick too. Therefore, you need to clean with products that you probably already have in your kitchen cabinets. Items like baking soda and citrus peels are better to clean with because they are all natural and don’t have any harsh chemicals in them like the store-bought products do.

Cleaning with Baking Soda

Baking soda is one of the best household cleaning products you can have in your kitchen cabinets. Not only does it deodorize but it also brightens, shines, and kills grime, grease, and baked on items. Investing in baking soda to deodorize your refrigerator and clean grimy and greasy counter tops and kitchen sinks is the best investment you will make.

Cleaning with Vinegar

Vinegar, besides baking soda, is another smart investment on your part. Having a bottle of apple cider vinegar in your kitchen cabinet will not just clean a coffee machine but, because of its acidity, it can help get rid of soap scum in your bathroom, get rid of grease and grime in your kitchen and bathroom and shine and brighten up your windows. Vinegar certainly is a miracle cleaner for all surfaces and purposes.

Cleaning with Citrus

Don’t throw away those orange, lemon, and lime peels just yet because you can use them to clean too. You can use them to clean your kitchen sink and counter tops with as well as use them to make the room smell better. Now you don’t have to waste those citrus peels anymore!

One product that is good to try because it is citrus based is Virosol. Because it has citrus in it, it can degrease, deodorize, and keep your home smelling fresh and clean all day, every day.

Cleaning with Essential Oils

Essential oils are not just for calming you down as you breathe them in and for helping you relax. You can add them to your cleaning products, such as vinegar, and make the room smell better. However, be sure you are using the right ones because some essential oils can trigger allergies as well.

Cleaning with Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is good for disinfecting things and whitening and brightening rooms. You can use lemon juice as an abrasive to scrub different areas and use it to clean your windows and mirrors as well, just like vinegar. Using it can also make your home smell nice all day long!

No Need to Buy Store Bought Anymore

Using products, you already have in your kitchen cabinets can help keep your home clean, smelling great, and keep you, your family, and your pets safe from the harsh chemicals that are included in store bought products. Not only can using products you already have in your home keep your family and pets safe by not using harsh chemicals, but doing so can help you save money as well.
