Natural Cleaning Solutions


Many household cleaners are considered hazardous waste because of their toxic ingredients. Some of the ingridience can cause burns or rashes when it comes into contact with bare skin,some can damage internal organs when it is absorbed through the skin .

Safer natural alternatives are just as effective at cleaning ,and considerably cheaper. Fortunately, for many home-cleaning chores, you can make your own cleaning products using the formulas listed below.

Natural Cleaning Solutions

All-Purpose Cleaner: Mix 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup baking soda (or 2 teaspoons borax) into 1/2 gallon (2 liters) water. Store and keep. Use for removal of water deposit stains on shower stall panels, bathroom chrome fixtures, windows, bathroom mirrors, etc.

Fabric softener: To reduce static cling, dampen your hands, then shake out your clothes as you remove them from the drier. Line-drying clothing is another alternative.

Abrasive Scrub:In a 3-cup container, use a spoon to mix 2 cups baking soda and 1/2 cup liquid castile soap.Stir in 4 teaspoons of vegetable glycerin and 5 drops tea tree oil. The glycerin is a natural preservative and will keep the mixture soft. Tea tree oil has antibacterial properties.Add a small amount of the soft scrub mixture to a microfiber cleaning cloth and scrub sinks, tile and bathroom fixtures.Rinse with hot water and polish with a dry microfiber cloth.

Another alternative are microfiber cloths which lift off dirt, grease and dust without the need for cleaning chemicals, because they are formulated to penetrate and trap dirt. A good quality cloth can last for several years.
