Chemical Free Cleaning


Picture From: diynetwork.com

Have you ever looked on the back of your bathroom cleaner only to discover that you can’t pronounce any of the ingredients? Furthermore, if you keep reading you will see many warnings that include things such as: warning, do not ingest, harmful, toxic, unsafe, call poison control, and more. If we go back in time just a few decades we will discover that our grandparents made their own home cleaners. They were brilliant and combined ingredients that we use everyday to create some of the best home organic home cleaners.

Here is a short list of things you can use to clean your home that you might already have in the cabinet:

  • Baking Soda
  • Vinegar
  • Lemon Juice
  • Peroxide
  • Castile Oil
  • Essential Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Water
  • Spray Bottle

With the items listed above you can make some of the best non toxic home cleaning solutions around. Here are a few recipes for you to try.

Carpet Freshener

1 Cup Baking Soda

10 Drops of Essential Oil (your choice)

Container (We used an old fashioned mason jar)

Put all of the ingredients in the jar and mix them up. Let the mixture sit overnight so that the oil and baking soda can dry and incorporate together. Since mason jars have those nifty tops. Remove the inner seal, replace it with a piece of paper and screw the top back on. Then, poke holes in the paper. You now have a shaker top. Shake that carpet freshener all over the carpet, let it sit for 10 minutes, then vacuum. You now have a wonderfully deodorized home.

Tub Cleaner

1 Cup Baking Soda

1/3 Cup of Castile Oil

1/3 Cup of Water

2 Tablespoons of Vinegar

4-6 Drops of Essential Oil

Combine all of your ingredients in an oversized jar or spray bottle. Make sure it is dissolved well by shaking. You can add a little to a towel or sponge to begin scrubbing the bathroom tub or you can spray it using your spray bottle. It is completely up to you but you will have one amazingly clean tub.

Remove Rust

Lemon

Salt

It is time to remove that rust from those pans. The way in which this is done is to sprinkle some salt on the rusted part of the pan. Next grab your lemon and squeeze the lemon juice on top of the rust and salt so that it is saturated. Let it sit for about 2 hours. Last but not least take the rind of the lemon and rub it back and forth until the rust is removed. Proceed to wash the pan like normal and be sure to dry it.

We hope that you will implement these organic and economically sound cleaning recipes in your home. You know everything that’s in it and you can pronounce it as well.
