Later this week, I have some guests arriving and am spending some time making sure the house is in tip-top shape as they are our first overnight guests in the new house. Cleaning at our house is anything but the toxic mess found in so many modern cleaners. If you’re new to cleaning with all natural cleaners consider the following:
Cream of Tartar- makes an excellent porcelain cleaner. Simply sprinkle some onto a damp cloth and rub any stained porcelain until clean, then rinse. This works great on toilets and porcelain sinks if you have hard water and get those orangey colors in the pores.
Vinegar - Vinegar is a great all-around cleaning product in my experience. Diluted it makes a great cleaner for windows, hardwood floors, bath tubs, showers, and much more. White distilled vinegar seems to the best vinegar for cleaning and is an extremely frugal choice.
Baking Soda- Baking soda is a great way to deodorize carpets. Sprinkle some on the carpet, allow to sit for a while then vacuum as usual.
Vegetable Oil – 1/4 Cup vegetable oil combined with 1 teaspoon lemon juice makes a great all natural wood polish for all your furniture.
How about you, how do you clean your home naturally?
