Wanting an eco-friendly home?
Over the past few years, the hype and interest in green-cleaning or eco-friendly cleaning have become increasingly popular.
So what is Green cleaning? Well, unlike traditional cleaning products, green cleaning products are made with components that are safe, non-toxic, and biodegradable. Eco-friendly cleaning products not only assist to minimize air and water pollution, but also aid in the fight against ozone depletion and climate change.
Sounds expensive? Not at all. You can make your green cleaning products at home in under 5-minutes! So not only are you saving money, but also reducing fossil fuel consumption just by reducing the number of ingredients. How great is that?
Here is a multi-purpose cleaner 'recipe.'
5 Minute All- Purpose Cleaner
One cup vodka or rubbing alcohol
One cup water
One tablespoon white vinegar
Method: Pour the mixture into a glass spray bottle and use it on all kitchen and bathroom surfaces plus tiles and chrome.
Natural Vinegars are fermented and contain several natural trace elements and nutrients that are beneficial for your health and wellbeing. It kills bacteria, mould, and germs, yet it is environmentally safe.
You can use vinegar on almost anything in the kitchen. It works well with copper, brass, and crystal. It’s especially helpful on appliance cords (as you can't scrub those with water).
Important to note: WARNING: What You Can’t Clean With Vinegar: Vinegar tarnishes silver and often reacts badly to synthetic fibres. As most clothing these days contains at least a small synthetic component, it’s important to test your laundry before trying to use vinegar on it. Vinegar can be corrosive to granite and marble surfaces.
We hope you enjoy this easy homemade cleaning recipe.
