It has become a popular wave that people are becoming more conscious of what they’re trying to clean with, whether it’s to help the environment or to save a few pennies. A lot of home made solution can be made simply with cupboard ingredients such as white vinegar, lemon, salt… The list goes on.
Here are a few simple recipes to get your started on if you’re trying to clean.. cleaner!
Multi-Purpose Cleaner - White Vinegar
(Not to be mistaken for Malt Vinegar!) White vinegar is just a great all-round cleaner, and can be used on almost anything. It’s natural acidity means it can cut through dirt and tough grime easily. Mix one part vinegar and one part water and shake in a spray bottle. You can add lemon or herbs as well to help create a nicer scent. As fantastic as this solutions is though, please be cautious not to use on surfaces such as stone and ceramics, as the acidity can be TOO strong and actual erode your surface as well as the dirt!
Heavy-duty Scrub - Lemon and Baking Soda
These two natural cleaners are perfect together to remove stubborn marks such as mould, in-depth dirt, grime and even rust. Simply squeeze out the juice from your lemon and add to about roughly 4 tablespoons baking soda and mix together until it forms a paste. Apply this to the area such as inside your oven door and scrub. It should then be easy enough to remove any remaining residue with water and a cloth.
Kitchen Cleaner - Baking Soda
To clean areas such as your kitchen worktops, counters, and even the inside of your fridge, all you need is your trusty baking soda. It is a great deodoriser and can be used to help shine and buff your stainless steels (i.e. cooker tops, sinks). Mix 4 tables spoons to roughly 500ml of warm water and add into a spray bottle and give a good shake until it’s fully mixed together. Spray and use a soft microfibre cloth to rub the surface to removes marks as well as buff to give a great shine.
Bathroom Scrub - Baking Soda and Salt
