You want your home to be safe and clean, but you also probably don’t want anyone in your home to be exposed to harsh and toxic substances. Unfortunately, many chemicals in cleaners are not safe. But the good news is that you can just as easily clean your home with simple, homemade green cleaning methods.

Sink Scouring

What could be less expensive or fresher than using a tried-and-true method to clean your sinks, showers, and tubs? The key ingredient is baking soda, and you can simply sprinkle it on a surface to be cleaned, then add a little water. For enhanced cleaning benefits, add a couple drops of essential oil like tea tree oil or lavender oil.

Drain Cleaner

Drains in bathroom and kitchen sinks as well as tubs and showers can get dirty and smelly over time. Address that issue by keeping all drains clean. Simply sprinkle some baking soda in the drain, and then pour a bit of vinegar in there. The mixture will fizz some. Let the mixture sit for about 15 minutes or overnight, and then flush it with hot water. Some companies, such as Coastal Plumbing Inc., know that if your drain is having a serious problem, you might want to look into using a drain cleaning service. They will maintain your drain so that it works like new.

Countertop and Surface Cleaner

It is important to keep the surfaces in your kitchen looking clean. This includes the countertops and refrigerator shelves. This is an easy cleaning issue to address. Get a 32-ounce spray bottle, and fill it almost to the top with water. Then add about 25 drops of grapefruit seed extract. Shake up the bottle. You now have a spray cleaner that has zero chemical odor yet cleans through grease and dirt very effectively.

Laundry Powder

There is no need to use laundry cleaning products that are filled with chemicals that you have to breathe when you use the products. Instead, opt for green and homemade laundry cleaning methods. One great option is to use washing soda powder along with borax powder for washing clothes in all temperatures in the washer. Use about a tablespoon of each item for a regular-sized load of clothes.

When you use homemade and green cleaning methods and products, you have greater peace of mind in knowing that you are not using harmful, harsh chemical products. And a huge bonus is that cleaning becomes much more pleasant and even fun.
