1. Use lemons

Lemons are literally a cleansing wonder of nature. Lemons have strong antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Because of its high acid content, lemon is also a natural deodorant.

2. Use baking soda

Everyone who likes to bake has baking soda in their pantry. But it can also be used for cleaning. Thanks to its alkaline properties, it acts as a mild solvent and absorbs odors.

With soda and water, you can make a thick paste that is perfect for removing surface rust. If a more liquid mixture is made, it can be used as a multipurpose cleaner that is particularly effective on grease stains. It can also be used to clean the bottoms of hard-to-reach beverage bottles.

3. Wash more gently

Baking soda is also safe to use in laundry. Simply by adding it to the washing machine, it can soften the laundry and remove unpleasant odors from the clothes.

4. Using White Vinegar

White vinegar contains acetic acid, a weak acid that can be used in almost all areas of household cleaning. Vinegar can be diluted with water and placed in a spray bottle to provide an effective stain remover for a variety of fabrics that also has antiseptic properties.

White vinegar is a strong ally when cleaning windows: fill a 1 liter spray bottle with 500 ml vinegar and 500 ml water. Spray the entire length of the window, wipe with a squeegee, and use a microfiber cloth to make up for any imperfections. The same poultice can be applied to glass surfaces and mirrors throughout the house.
