Families will prefer eco-friendly home cleaning products to protect their little ones and pets from harmful ingestion of chemicals.Others will choose the eco-friendly products to protect the environment.Commonly available items at home form effective cleaning products. Generally, before trying any formulations at home, use a little of it on a hidden area first. Here are some common formulations.
2 table spoons of Baking soda.
Scrub on tiles and bath tubs with a wet scrubber. It can also be used to remove color marks, grease spots and oil streaks on walls.
4 table spoons baking soda + 8 table spoons vinegar + 2 liters of water.
Baking soda softens water, scrubs and deodorizes.White vinegar cuts grease and odor and is also a good stain remover.This formula can be used as an all-purpose cleaner in the home.Window stains and tile marks are scrubbed off using this formula.
Salt + lemon juice.
Coarse salt makes it easy to scrub off dirt while lime juice’s acidic nature gets rid of common bacteria and rust.Salt can be used to scrub out rust after leaving the item covered in lime juice for 2-3 hours.
2 table spoons of white vinegar + 1 liter of warm water.
This mix makes a good window cleaning agent.Use old, newspapers that are not colored to rub the formula on stained windows. Use non colored newspapers to clean the windows with the mix.When using this mix, preferably clean the windows when it’s cooler. Warm air mixing with the vinegar causes clouding on the windows. The formula is effective on removing wall stickers, tags and adhesive wall papers.
Equal measure of vinegar and baking soda + boiling water.
There are times when the plunger just won’t work for that clogged drain.Put the baking soda in the drain, then the vinegar to cause a chemical reaction.Next, pour the boiling water after 20minutes lapse to clear the residue. Warm water is preferred for drains made of plastic to avoid melting them down.
Sodium Borate + Sodium Carbonate.
Mix sodium borate and sodium carbonate in equal parts to form dish washer soap.Washing soda corrodes aluminum; therefore avoid using it on aluminum utensils.
Baking soda, citrus peels, dried fragrance herbs.
They can be used separately to mildly scent the home.Lemon peels placed in the vacuum bag, microwave and oven leave citrus scents when put on. Baking soda can be sprinkled on rugs and carpets some hours before vacuuming to absorb smells. Dried scented herbs can be kept in house corners.
Would you ever have thought bananas could clean too?Make a paste of the banana peels with little water through blending them.Use the paste to rub of tarnish from your silver pieces of jewelry. Dip them in water to get the paste off and polish with a cotton cloth.
