Spring has sprung and that means it’s time for spring cleaning! After all winter, it’s time to open the windows and get to freshening up the house. If you’re looking for some tips on green household products to keep your spring cleaning as natural as possible, our specialist for braces in Hartsville, SC, would like to help you out!
If you’re not in favor of harsh chemical cleaners, consider some alternative options that work just as well. Vinegar is an effective multi-purpose household cleaner. Use it for windows, mirrors, countertops, bathtubs and more.
For dirty countertops, mix baking soda and water together to create a paste, and use the paste to scrub down stains for sparkling clean counters. This mixture is also great for pots and pans with stuck-on food. Additionally, use pure baking soda to get rid of smelly carpets–just sprinkle some on, let it sit overnight, and vacuum it up the next day!
Do you tend to use Swiffers and paper towels to get your dusting done? These can be a waste of money (not to mention paper)! Consider reusable dust rags for this task. You can use cloth diapers, old clothing such as t-shirts, or microfiber cloths to pick up the dust. These are just as effective and more eco-friendly!
Staying away from bleach and harsh cleaners can be difficult if you’re trying to remove mold. For the bathtub, consider first using vinegar to remove it. If the vinegar doesn’t take care of it, try the baking soda paste as a scrub to remove it. These natural options should work perfectly for the task.
However, be aware that mold can be dangerous for your health and sometimes you have to bring out the bleach!
