A clean home can make you feel really good, can’t it? I can’t got to bed without cleaning the kitchen – who wants to get up to dirty dishes and crumby countertops?!
However, while wiping, buffing and scrubbing might mean a lovely sparkly home, too many cleaning products can be bad news for the environment, your home and your family, especially if you suffer for eczema or allergies.
If you’d like to reduce the harsh chemicals in your home, you might like to consider going green with some homemade cleaning products. Making cleaning products yourself can also be a lot kinder to your wallet.
For example, did you know that you can use white vinegar to clean your window, baking soda to unblock your drains, and citrus as a disinfectant?
Check out the green cleaning infographic below for a quick guide to making up seven different types eco cleaning products:
- Glass & window cleaner
- Drain un-blocker
- Citrus disinfectant
- Furniture polish
- Abrasive cleaning powder
- Oven cleaner
- Grout cleaner
I’ve used the oven cleaner tip before and it really does work – and to think you’ve been using bottles covered in hazard labels!
Pretty simple, huh? I’m off to the supermarket to stock up on lemons, vinegar and baking soda.
