Green Cleaning Products
Going green when cleaning can lessen water pollution, air pollution, climate change, and ozone
depletion. In addition, the practice of using green products also promotes recycling which can reduce
the use of raw materials, thus lessening the need for disposal of toxic products and packing materials.
Natural Cleaning Ingredients
Easy Natural Cleaning Recipes for Beginners
Switching to homemade DIY cleaners
might sound like a lot more work, but it’s
actually quite simple. The ingredients are
easy to come by and last a long time.
Here are a few easy and inexpensive natural cleaning recipes to get started around
the house:
The natural cleaning ingredients you
should keep on hand are:
Glass Cleaner – No need for that bright blue, highly scented stuff … vinegar +
water cuts through dirt and leaves glass streak-free.
white vinegar
liquid castile soap or Sal Suds
natural salt
baking soda
borax
washing soda
hydrogen peroxide
lemons
microfiber cloths
essential oils (optional)
a spray bottle or two
Tile Grout Cleaner – Mix 1 part water and 3 parts baking soda mixed into a paste.
Apply to grout and let sit, scrub with toothbrush, remove with sponge.
Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner – Four ingredients and thirty seconds to mix it
up is all it takes! Customize the scent with essential oils.
Cookware – Use sea salt or coarse salt mixed with a little lemon juice and scrub.
Also, try baking soda and water made into a paste. This also works well on stained
tea cups or coffee mugs, and even the cutting board.
Fabric Softener – Mix 1 part vinegar and 2 parts water together. Add 1/4 to 1/3
cup to the final rinse cycle.
Toilet Cleaner – Use undiluted white vinegar, pour around the top of the toilet
bowl, scrub until clean.
