Cleaning products can be found everywhere in our homes and offices, from dishes, countertops, furniture, clothes, floors, windows, and floating through the air. The war on dirt and germs is fierce indeed. So fierce that a lot of the time, we do not see the other side of the story; that the use of chemicals in the home can have health implications. Most conventional cleaning products are petroleum-based and so the health and environmental implications are quite obvious. But for professional cleaning service providers like Geaux Maids in New Orleans, there’s a better way to get this done while protecting your health through the use of eco friendly cleaning products.
Home-made or organic cleaning products can equally do the job instead of opting for cleaning products that annihilate everything in their path. Natural and organic products are gaining serious ground in the cleaning business because they can equally keep a house or office clean and fresh-smelling, without the toxic side effects of most cleaners. The use of natural cleaning products in the home cannot be emphasized more than in the kitchen where all meals are prepared. Here are a few of the top tips from Geaux Maids if you are considering using greener cleaning methods.
With the understanding of the environmental impacts of conventional cleaning products, more cleaning manufacturers are making organic and environmentally friendly products to take advantage of the growing market. A lot of them are non-toxic, biodegradable, and produced with renewable resources; different from petroleum based product. In fact, a lot of families rely on homemade products to clean their homes since there are a lot of great do-it-yourself mixtures that will do well and are less dangerous. Vinegar and baking soda has made a hit with many families; those two can be used to clean almost anything! Just mix in a small amount of warm water with either of these and you’ve got yourself an all-purpose cleaner.
For your all-purpose cleaning solution, mix 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup baking soda into 1/2 gallon (2 liters) of water. This can be used to remove water deposit stains on shower stall panels, bathroom chrome fixtures, bathroom mirrors, windows and the likes. You can also use lemon or any citrus-based natural all-purpose cleaner. Natural fiber clothes make an excellent alternative because of their effectiveness in lifting off dirt, grease, and dust without the need for any chemicals. Natural fiber clothes are formulated to penetrate and trap dirt – a good quality one can last your several years.
For disinfecting, you can mix two teaspoons borax, four tablespoons vinegar, and three cups hot water will do the trick. A quarter spoon of liquid castile soap will give it that oomph power. This mixture is not an antibacterial formula, but in any case, your average kitchen or bathroom does not require antibacterial cleaners. Light drain cleaning can be achieved with a mix 1/2 cup salt in 1 gallon heated water. Just pour down the drain and watch the magic happen.
These are a few of the many neat tricks that will keep your home squeaky clean and smelling good while keeping you safe from the toxic effects of conventional cleaning products.
