Green cleaning solutions for your home

If you’re cleaning in the bathroom, baking soda often works well to dissolve stains and is particularly effective in sinks and toilets.

Salt and lemon juice mixed together also makes a great scrub, useful for scouring areas like the kitchen stove and sink, as well as the shower with its sometimes stubborn grime.

You can always add some vinegar into the mix as well, as this has a great reputation as a DIY cleaner. Be sure to have pure distilled white vinegar on hand, too, as this is great for helping to remove stains and get rid of odours.

Vinegar will also help to keep your bathroom and kitchen fixtures looking sparkly clean, as well as your windows.

If you don’t want to make your own cleaning products, you can still find cleaners made from organic ingredients and plant-based materials.

It’s also a great idea for forego paper towels for reusable cloths you wash and use time and time again.

If you’re having trouble keeping pests such as ants out of your home, focus on keeping your environment as clean and uncluttered as possible rather than resorting to chemical sprays.

However, look out for organic and plant-based pest sprays that have begun to appear on the market as these are a greener option.

Before you know it, you’ll be a whiz at mixing up your very own cleaning fluid!
