According to Natural News, more and more research is showing that the harsh chemicals in cleaning products are causing major health concerns for consumers. Studies show they can cause cancer and infertility, and new research is showing that some of those chemicals are even making us fat. You can have a clean home without using harsh chemicals.
There are many things you already own that can clean your home effectively. Baking soda isn't just useful in baking. Baking soda is a mild abrasive that can clean just about everything. Baking soda is great for removing red wine and coffee stains. Try soda water first and if that doesn't work pour baking soda on the stain, rub it in, and then brush it off.
Another common household item that is a great all natural cleaner is vinegar. Vinegar not only cleans up grease it's also a great deodorizer. Here are some ways you can use vinegar to clean your home:
* Soak your shower head in vinegar to remove lime scale.
* Spray a mixture of equal parts water and vinegar on windows and mirrors and wipe clean with crumpled up newspapers.
* For stubborn marks in your toilet, sprinkle your toilet bowl with baking soda and then pour vinegar on top of it. It will bubble (think volcano science projects). Use your toilet brush to brush down the sides of your toilet bowl.
