List of The Best Cheap And Natural Cleaning Solutions

Commercial detergents are priced and more important, in a long term, they cause allergic reactions and 
diseases such as asthma and sinusitis. Your grandparents did not cleaned their homes with commercial 
products. They used ones that they made with their own hands. So DIY products are not old-fashioned, 
but non-toxic and therefore healthier. In addition to that, natural detergents are environmental friendly.

Here is a list of products you can use in order to avoid toxic detergents. 

Baking soda cleans stains, dirty spots; removes unpleasant smells; polishes any kind of material 
(jewellery, porcelain, aluminium, stainless steel, silver); makes the water softer.

White vinegar removes grease, mildew, stains, wax, pet smells, polishes metal; you clean bricks and 

Sodium borate, Borax, is used for disinfection; removing unpleasant smells; cleans wallpapers, walls 
with paint and floors; boosts the effect of the soap. Use gloves when cleaning with Borax and wash it 

Lemon is used as a disinfectant against most bacteria in the houses; fights with stains from clothes, 
porcelain and aluminium.

Unscented soap cleans basically everything.

SAL Soda, washing soda, is a mineral that removes grease, stains, makes the water softer, cleans sinks, 
oven, grill. But do not use it on aluminium, because it can cause damage. 

Cornstarch helps cleaning windows, furniture and carpets.

Beer can also be is used to polish metal without damaging the surface and to remove stains. 

Salt is also against oily stains and can be used as a cleaner that do not scratch. 

All these products are the perfect alternative if you want to use natural products. Here are some 
variations with which you can clean your home.

Clean the oven with a paste made of soda and water. Put it on the dirty places or all over and wait from 
five to ten minutes. Then wipe it off with a towel. 

Having pets is amazing, but when it comes to the urine smells, it is not that pleasant. The white vinegar 
in a steam cleaner removes the smell and stains. If a steamer is out of the picture, you can add rubbing 
alcohol to the vinegar. Just spray the area and leave it for ten minutes, then wash it up. If needed, repeat.

You can make a cleaner for all purpose using using 1/8 borax and one quarter warm water. You can make
 another type of a cleaner, but using vinegar, 4 spoons of baking soda ans ¼ hot water. Put the selected 
recipe in a spray bottle. 

When cleaning the floors, vinegar is going to do the best job. Just put a couple of drops in the water and 
your floor will be clean ans shine. You can add  a few drops of oil and vinegar, if you have a wood floor. 

Dish washing soap is easily made of borax and washing soda, equal parts of each. 

If you want to disinfect, mix 4 spoons of vinegar with 2 spoons of borax in a 750 ml pray bottle with hot 
water. Spray and wipe off with a towel.  

A product for laundry is made of 1 cup soap, half cup of washing soda and half cup of borax. 

Spots of ink and marker from walls and other surfaces are removed by putting baking soda on the damaged
 area. Rub carefully, wipe and water. 

Of mould troubles you, put some lemon or vinegar on it. 

Oil and grease are cleaned up with baking soda. Scrub the place with a brush and water it. 

 Rust is removed with a little salt and lemon. Leave it until it soaks well for three hours and water it.

A quarter of baking soda and a cup of vinegar are put into the bawl of the toilet. Leave it for a couple of 
minutes, brush and flush the toilet. 2 parts of borax with one of lemon juice can be used, too. 

Bathroom can be rubbed with baking soda. After that wipe the surfaces with vinegar using towel.

Windows are also cleaned up with vinegar. Mix two spoons of white vinegar in a litre of hot water. Use 
cotton towel or some paper to clean the windows. 

You do not have to use chemicals to clean your house. DIY detergents are healthier, more 
environmental friendly and inexpensive. You can make a change starting with the household products.
