Recommended Products for Cleaning

August 17, 2015

The following is a list of products that I recommend you switch to in order to decrease your trash production, limit your chemical usage, and increase your overall happiness with these beauties!

 

 

ALL PURPOSE CLEANER - You can use vinegar with lemons (to help with the smell) as a disinfectant and cleaner for your bathroom and kitchen. Soak the vinegar in a jar of cut lemons for two-three weeks and then pour into a spray bottle for use.

 

CARPET STAIN REMOVER - You can pour club soda on the stain and blot with towels until the stain and soda are soaked up.

 

CLOGGED DRAINS - Avoid clogged drains by pouring 1/4 cup baking soda down the drain weekly. Rinse through with hot water.

 

LAUNDRY DETERGENTSoap Nuts from Green Virgin Products are easy to use and can be composted after you're done with them! Horse chestnuts also have a similar reaction and may be found locally (and free on the side of the road!).

 

RUST REMOVAL - Mix salt with 1 tablespoon lemon juice until if forms a paste. Use a dry cloth to rub the paste on the rusted area and remove. This recipe can similarly be done with vinegar and salt. 

 

SHOWER SCUM/SHOE POLISH/SEASONING PANS - Coconut oil can amazingly polish leather, season cast iron pans, and be used as a shower cleaner.
