Spring cleaning offers up many possibilities for new solutions around our home, from decorations to the actual job of house cleaning itself. The tasks you need to deal with will sometimes be kind of expensive and harder to handle, but when done right you can make do with a homemade cleaning detergent and set of cleaners instead of purchasing commercial products that may contain questionable and harsh chemicals.
For most of the cleaning jobs out there you will have need of no heavier chemicals to pull it off, since they can be costly both for your wallet and your health if you use them wrong. We can get the job done with our very own homemade products instead.
Let’s get started on the ways you can make your very own cleaning detergent:
Cleaning your porcelain and tiles
You can work on keeping your bathroom and kitchen good looking and perfectly clean. Just make use of baking soda and water and you can make a nice paste that would work quite well for house cleaning and scrubbing purposes. Dusting he surfaces with soda, then following up with a wet sponge or a moist cloth can make cleaning most non-porous surfaces a breeze. Using this type of approach can make it easy to clean mildew and mold, as well as grease stains, but you will need to make use of lemon juice or baking soda as well if you want to remove grease.
Cleaning the kitchen counters
One of the most important areas of the house, kitchens will require a lot more care than the rest of the rooms around. Crumbs, spills, splatters and more will be your worst enemy. Much of the work you need to do can be completed fairly easily without the use of harsh chemicals, when it comes down to the use of said products you will need to use a more friendly solution. Harder stains can be scrubbed by the use of salt in most cases. It should give you good abrasive power without the use of harsh chemicals or something similar.
The cleaning of your windows with commercial solutions is what we go for in most cases, but we don’t really have to deal with it that way. Mixing two tablespoons worth of vinegar with a gallon of water and placing it into a spray bottle would make for a pretty good solution for window cleaning. If you avoid the use of commercial cleaners you will be able to do window cleaning just as well with homemade solutions as well. Club soda and vinegar will be a good way of cleaning as well.
This will be handled more easily than most other tasks, specifically because you will have a chance keep things simple. You can get rid of a good amount of stains with the use of club soda, since it will allow you to lift the stains with the soda. If you have any spills on the surface you can use cornmeal to soak it up. When it dries up you can vacuum the remains and you will have a chance to take care of it.
