CHEAP HOUSE CLEANING! – You can make these preparations yourself!

Why not clean your house with natural preparations that are easy and cheap to get, while avoiding commercial solutions that largely consist of non-biodegradable material and are also packaged in plastic?

Even the most stubborn stains in the kitchen can be removed using just a few natural substances, and the home can be cleaned to a large extent.

You can use the following ingredients:

White vinegar is a diluted solution of acetic acid and is used as a disinfectant, bleach, deodorant…

Baking soda or baking powder (sodium hydrogencarbonate) is an excellent solution for universal use in cleaning, and is used as a powder or solution.

Borax (sodium borax) can be used as a fabric softener, stain remover, bleach or disinfectant. Be sure to pay attention when using it, because it is poisonous.

Tea tree or eucalyptus oil

Tea tree oil comes from a plant native to eastern Australia, it is an excellent antiseptic and disinfectant. Eucalyptus oil is produced from eucalyptus, it is also a strong antiseptic, and is used against colds and flu, or when cleaning clothes from greasy stains.

Diluted ammonia (ammonium hydroxide solution with soap)

Although diluted ammonia can irritate the eyes and have an unpleasant smell, it breaks down quickly in the environment. It is a powerful bleaching and cleaning agent.

Lemon juice is a weak solution of citric acid. It can be a mild bleach, deodorant and cleaning agent.

Pure soap is a surfactant or wetting agent that allows water to combine with greasy substances so that they can be removed from dishes and clothing. Pure soap is completely biodegradable.

Steel wool is a very effective abrasive for stubborn dirt and stains.
