The use of industrial chemicals for cleaning is clearly dangerous for health and the environment. Yet nature is full of healthy and ecological natural products that can be used just as effectively. Review of all the tips and tricks for cleaning up with natural products.
MAKE A NATURAL WAX FOR YOUR WOOD AND FLOORS
To maintain wood and parquet floors, you can make a natural wax yourself, which will give them a new lease of life. You mix half a spoon of olive oil with 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice or vinegar. You can then put everything in a tightly closed container and shake it vigorously to obtain a homogeneous mixture.
And if you use extra virgin olive oil, your natural wax will be even softer. Apply there with a soft cloth. White vinegar can also be used to restore some shine to your dull floors. Dilute a ¼ cup of white vinegar in a liter of hot water and apply this mixture with a soft cloth. To do once a year!
LEMON: A NATURAL CLEANSER
The juice of one lemon is a great cleaner for windows, mirrors, tile joints, and even your oven. Its powerful action is very effective and it leaves a pleasant scent for a long time. For a more practical side, prepare lemon juice in advance that you just dilute and that you place in a small sprayer. Keep your sprayer in the fridge for several days.
MAKE A NATURAL DISINFECTANT
If you want to get rid of chemical disinfectants or bleach there is a natural 100% solution! In a container, you mix two cups of water, two tablespoons of natural liquid soap and 30 drops of tea tree oil. You will then have a very effective disinfectant for kitchen and bathroom floors, all tiled surfaces, sinks and baths and even porcelain!
MAKE A BASIC CLEANER
If you want to equip yourself with a basic cleanser that works just about anywhere and is good enough for all the little everyday cleanings, follow this recipe. Dissolve 1 tablespoon of baking soda in a liter of hot water. You add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and 1 teaspoon of tea tree oil. Then you can place everything in a vaporizer. You will have your basic cleaner to do an ecological cleaning on a daily basis!
CLEAN YOUR SOFA WITH BICARBONATE SODA
You can very well do a deep cleaning of your fabric sofa with baking soda. Apply the powder fairly evenly and scrub with a brush to work the powder into the fibers. Leave to stand for at least twelve hours. Then, with a vacuum cleaner and a narrow nozzle (for more efficiency) vacuum the powder residues. This will sanitize your sofa, remove stains and give it a boost.
MAKE YOUR OWN RECURRING CREAM
Commercial scouring creams are often expensive, moderately effective, and contain chemicals that are very irritating to the skin and mucous membranes. If you want to do an eco-friendly maintenance of your home, you can very easily make your own natural scouring cream. To do this, mix a dose of baking soda, 2 doses of white clay or 1 dose of clay and one of Meudon white then 1 dose of dishwashing liquid and 4 doses of water. You will then have an absolutely healthy and ecological scouring cream and in addition very effective for natural cleaning!
USE EGGS FOR CLEANING!
Surprising as it may seem, we have a lot of erased organic cleaning products in our fridge. But if for the lemon it seems obvious enough for the eggs it seems less so! And yet the egg is a fairly powerful natural cleaning agent.
You can use egg white to revive and shine leather, pvc furniture, wood. You can use it lightly beaten or diluted with water, or even in its natural state for leathers, adding a touch of turpentine.
Egg yolk, on the other hand, will be ideal for cleaning and shining plastic floors. By mixing 2 egg yolks in a liter of water, you get a very effective product for making your floors shine. Egg yolk can also be used for all coffee and tea stains on fabrics, clothes and curtains.
With these tips and tricks, you no longer need chemicals that are harmful to the health of your family! An ecological household is the best guarantee to live in a healthy and pleasant place and to no longer pollute the planet!
