Effective Ways to Green Cleaning Your Home

After reading this article you will no longer need to depend on any of the cleaning solutions and products available in stores. If you think it is not possible, then we will make it possible for your convenience. This will also eliminate the expense involved in buying a variety of cleaners, each for a different purpose. We are here providing you with the eco-friendly substitutes of chemical and bleach-based cleaning agents and the cost involved in buying them. So let’s get started.

How to make Homemade Spray Cleaner

White vinegar is the magic solution that will be used here. It has an exceptional property of cleaning, disinfecting and deodorizing any place without much labor. Prepare a mixture of 1 cup of white vinegar and 1 cup of water and mix it thoroughly. Fill this solution in the spraying bottle and spray this solution in an area that is in need of cleaning and removal of odor. Tiles and grout lines can also be cleaned just by using this solution. Vinegar bears acetic properties which are very effective in removing any hard dirt and odor from any place.

Homemade Glass Cleaning Solution

You do not have to purchase a branded glass cleaner from the store if homemade cleaner does exactly what you expect. For preparing a glass cleaning solution mix 1 cup of rubbing alcohol or isopropyl, 1/3rd cup of white vinegar and 1 cup of water. Mix the solution and store it in a bottle.  Dampen the sponge with this solution and clean the glass of windows, tables, and screens. You will find it very effective.

Making Natural Air Freshener

Most air fresheners available in stores have a very strong smell which may not suit some people. Rather than eliminating odor from the place, they leave an unpleasant odor in its place. But, we can resolve this problem by using natural products present in every household. Prepare a mixture of 1 cup of cold water, 2 tbsp of baking soda and 2 tsp of lemon juice.  Mix it thoroughly so that the baking soda gets completely dissolved in water and then store this solution in a spraying bottle. You can use it on areas that have a musty smell or a bad odor. You can also just use it as a room freshener. If you are allergic to lemon scent, then you can use rose water in place of lemon juice.

No Harsh Chemicals

The best part of all these methods is that it involves zero percent harsh chemicals that commercial products include. So do try them and see amazing results from them.
