Most of us use chemicals and other household supplies to clean our home despite knowing their side effects. It is close to impossible to avoid using all of them, but we can still reduce their quantities and replace them with household items easily available in our very own kitchen.
Mix 1 4 glass of hydrogen peroxide in half a glass of water and add one tablespoon of liquid soap to it. Put the mixture liquid on a sponge and wipe the tiles with it. Then wash the surface with water after a few minutes. You can also use a 1:1 mixture of water and vinegar and spray it on tiles twice a week for sparkling tiles.
Mix 8 fl oz (235 ml) 3% hydrogen peroxide with 3 tablespoons of baking soda and a drop of liquid soap in a spray can right before using it on the mattress. Spray the mixture on the dirty spot and let it dry for 10 minutes. Then clean the remainings of the baking soda using a vacuum cleaner.
All you need to do is to leave a small bowl of ammonia in a turned off oven overnight and wash the oven in the morning. The grease will peel off very easily. Make sure the windows of the kitchen are open and that you're wearing gloves during the cleaning process.
Boil water in a big pot and add soda to the water slowly using a tablespoon. Place the filters in the boiling water. The dirt and grease will start dissolving immediately. Remove the pot from fire after a couple of minutes. If the filters are extremely dirty, repeat the process with a new batch of clean water.
All you need to do is dip a Q-tip into ammonia-anisic drops and rub on the greasy spots. Use a toothbrush and sponge to clean ingrained grease. Make sure you're wearing gloves to protect your skin while cleaning.
Dissolve two tablespoons of baking soda in one liter of clean water and scrub the inside of the refrigerator. Wipe it with a soft cloth later. If you're troubled about the smell that would follow, use these kitchen materials to rescue you: a piece of dark bread, lemon slice, glasses of baking soda or absorbent coal.
Simply use pure vinegar to clean your toilet. It also works as an excellent disinfectant.
Fill the kettle to half or three-quarters with equal parts of water and vinegar. Cork the kettle nose and boil the kettle till the kettle furrings keep coming out. Wash the kettle well after that.
Wash the dishes with a 1:3 mixture of baking soda and dry mustard.
Apply some isopropyl alcohol on a sponge and rub it on dirty places. You can also use a brush instead of a sponge. Add baking soda if you feel like avoiding the funky odour.
