Alternative Cleaning Products You Can Use In Your Custom Home
The cost of chemical-based, branded cleaning materials is rising and making it difficult for homeowners to afford these products on a regular basis. Not to mention the multiple hazards associated with these products! Instead of emptying your wallet and potentially putting your family in harms way, try using these safe, alternative and homemade options.
A Safe, All-Purpose Cleaner
Why waste money on dangerous and expensive cleaners when you could save money and make your own using items already stocked in your home? By simply mixing 1/2 cup of vinegar and 1/4 cup of baking soda into 1/2 gallon of water, you have an alternative cleaning formula to be used on stains on countertops, showers, windows and mirrors, and more.
Get Rid of Carpet Stains
Carpet stains can be a homeowner’s worst nightmare. From wine to children spilling food to the family pets, your carpets experience quite a lot of mess. Unfortunately, carpet cleaning solutions can be a bit pricey.
Try mixing water and and white vinegar (equal parts) in a spray bottle. Spray this solution all over the stain and let it sit for a few minutes. After, scrub with warm soapy water to remove the stain.
Say Goodbye to Wall Stains
Many children like to color on the walls of their family’s custom built home as a form of artistic expression at a young age. Unfortunately, that can aggravate many parents. Simply use a sponge to carefully rub baking soda on the stain, and wipe it away. This can work for other marks on your walls.
Non-Toxic Commercial Products
Some homeowners do not have the time or resources to create these alternative cleaning solutions, but would still like to ensure that their family is out of harms way. Try using the following non-toxic commercial cleaning products recommended by Eartheasy:
- CitraSolv Concentrated Natural Cleaner and Degreaser
- CitraSolv Natural Multi-Purpose Cleaner
- Nellie’s All-Natural Laundry Soda
