Natural Cleaners For Your Household
Go green this spring with chemical free cleaning tips, here are some suggestions:
The inside of the microwave is always a pain to clean - it's grimy, it's smelly, it's hard to wipe clean with dried pasta sauce everywhere. For a quick fix, mix two tablespoons of baking soda in a bowl of water and use with a cloth to wipe down the interior.
We love our dishwashers for reducing the stress of our household chores during the week, but after a while a build up of food can accumulate inside. To remove all food residue from the dish racks run the washer empty with a cup of white vinegar. Voila, sparkling clean!
Vanilla extract works wonders as a cleaning solution particularly for refrigerators. Using a fresh sponge or paper towel, wipe down the inside walls, shelves, and drawers of your fridge. Artificial vanilla extract is better to use than natural if you have the choice due to its potent scent.
All of the ingredients you need to polish your furniture are right in your kitchen cupboard. Mix half a cup of lemon juice with one cup of olive oil. and stir well. Use the solution liberally on a soft cloth to wipe down coffee tables, kitchen tables, cabinets, etc.
