Green Clean Home Kit
Cleaning products are necessary for maintaining attractive and healthful conditions in the home and workplace. In addition to the obvious aesthetic benefits of cleaning, the removal of dust, allergens, and infectious agents is crucial to maintaining a healthful indoor environment. understands that keeping green cleaning products available to you between cleans is important, so we have put together A Green Cleaning Kit for you to have at a moments notice at home.
We think it’s a fabulous idea to have the ability to mix your own cleaning products from tried-and-tested formulas. Not only will a non-toxic cleaning kit save you oodles of cash over the years, but it's also unlikely to leave you gasping for an emergency-room doctor in the event of a child bypassing your safety guards. Cleaning green is also gentler on the environment, to boot. Transforming your home into a safe, nontoxic environment, you can complement your kit with an edited selection of commercial eco-friendly cleaning products that you know and trust.
Here are a few of our favorite clean and green basics. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oils for a spot of aromatic grime fighting. Bonus: Lavender and tea-tree oils are also natural antiseptics. Nothing makes you feel more at home with scents you love.
Don’t Forget To Clearly Mark Your Spray Bottles & Containers Of Their Contents!
All-Purpose Cleaner - 1/2 tsp washing soda A dab of liquid soap 2 cups hot tap water – You can combine the ingredients into a large spray bottle and shake until the washing soda has dissolved. Apply and wipe off with a sponge or rag. Tip: If you're out of washing soda, use 2 1/2 tsp of borax, instead.
Window Cleaner - 1/4-1/2 tsp liquid detergent 3 tbs vinegar 2 cups water spray bottle – It is very easy to put all the ingredients into a spray bottle, shake it up a bit, and use as you would a commercial brand. The soap in this recipe is important as this is what cuts the wax residue from the commercial brands you might have used in the past.
Creamy Soft Scrubber - Simply pour about 1/2 cup of baking soda into a bowl, and add enough liquid detergent to make a texture like frosting. Scoop the mixture onto a sponge, and wash the surface. This is the perfect recipe for cleaning the bathtub because it rinses easily and doesn't leave grit.
Tip: Add 1 tsp of vegetable glycerin to the mixture and store in a sealed glass jar, to keep the product moist. Otherwise, just make as much as you need at a time.
Oven Cleaner - 1 cup or more baking soda water A squirt or two of liquid detergent
You can sprinkle water generously over the bottom of the oven, then cover the grime with enough baking soda that the surface it totally white. Sprinkle some more water over the top, then let the mixture set overnight. You can easily wipe up the grease the next morning because the grime will have loosened. When you have cleaned up the worst of the mess, dab a bit of liquid detergent or soap on a sponge, and wash the remaining residue from the oven. If this recipe doesn't work for you it is probably because you didn't use enough baking soda and/or water.
Mold Killer - 2 teaspoons tea tree oil 2 cups water - Combine in a spray bottle, shake to blend, and spray on problem areas. Do not rinse.
Furniture Polish - 1/2 tsp oil, such as olive (or jojoba, a liquid wax) 1/4 cup vinegar or fresh lemon juice - Mix the ingredients in a glass jar. Dab a soft rag into the solution and wipe onto wood surfaces. Cover the glass jar and store indefinitely.
