HOMEMADE HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS SAVE TIME AND MONEY!
Cleaning the house usually involves the use of many different cleaning products. However, name-brand cleaners are expensive. They also contain harsh chemicals which may damage the environment as well as trigger allergies in some people.
Have you ever considered making your own cleaners, by substituting items commonly found in the home? More and more people are making their own household cleaners. These homemade cleaners have been around for many years and they are still effective for cleaning your home.
Let me offer some you might want to consider:
· Vinegar is a well-known household substance. It is useful for removing hard water build-up and for cleaning windows, mirrors, bathroom and kitchen fixtures. Use it straight from the bottle or dilute it with water to use in a spray bottle.
· Baking soda also has many uses. It can be used as a gentle scouring powder that doesn't scratch. It can also be used to freshen carpeting. Just sprinkle it on the carpeting and then vacuum it up. When mixed with water, it is effective to clean and freshen the refrigerator.
· Ammonia is useful as a grease cutter in the kitchen, on the stove, oven, or microwave. It is also a great floor cleaner. For an ammonia-based cleaning solution, mix ½ C. ammonia with 1 gallon of water. Ammonia can be used to clean windows. Use a capful for 2 gallons of water. Wash the windows with a sponge or rage, then wife clean with a squeegee blade.
· Dishwashing liquid can be used for washing walls or cupboards. Just a capful in a bucket of water goes a long way. Wash the cupboards with the mixture, then rinse with clean water.
These tips will not only save you time and money, but will be friendly to our environment as well!
