Top Tips – Keeping it Green
Today i’m going to give you some Top Tips for cleaning your home using basic ingredients most of us have in our kitchen. Saving you money and helping to keep our planet green.
We have been brainwashed over the years by huge marketing campaigns telling us we need this product for drains, that product for cleaning our bathroom etc., the list is endless.
But, all those products contain harmful chemicals that we inhale as we clean our homes.
My Top Tip has to be a win win for everyone and especially our environment with helping to keep our planet green.
Keep it Green – What do I need?
All you need is water, distilled white wine vinegar and bicarbonate soda. Optional, a few drops off essential oils.
Blocked Drain/Kitchen Sink
Take 1/2 cup / 65g of Bicarb and empty over you waste outlet then pour 1 cup/240ml of vinegar and let the magic begin. It will start to bubble away. When the reaction has finished, run the hot tap to flush away. If you have a stubborn blockage, simply repeat the process.
General home Cleaner
Ratio 50 water 50 white wine vinegar, optional, a few drops of essential oils and then pour into a spray bottle.
- Cleaning windows – avoid cleaning your windows when the sun is on them to avoid streaks.
- Baths, Showers, Toilets, Sinks, Tiles – Spray and wipe down.
- Counter surfaces (Do not use on stone or granite) – Spray and wipe away excess.
- Oven – Spray and wipe
- Fridge – Spray and wipe
- Doors & Frames – Spray and wipe
- Carpentry – This solution can be used on some wooden furniture but be mindful, as it may damage some woods
Cleaning Floors – 1 cup/240ml vinegar + 4 litres of hot water and mop as usual
Coffee Machine – White vinegar: run 1/1 ratio water and vinegar solution through your coffee machine to get rid of mould, hard water accumulations, and odours.
Dishwasher: Run 1 cup/240ml of vinegar through a short cycle. This will remove any build-up of dishwashing liquid and limescale residue.
Avoid cleaning with white vinegar
Marble and granite. The acidity of the vinegar will eat away and damage these surfaces.
- Stone surfaces, like a granite countertop or slate tile floor
- Solid wood furniture – May damage
- Hardwood flooring – unless stated, it will not damage the finish
- Electronics – Computers or smartphones
- Egg spills – The acid causes the eggs to thicken and become difficult to remove
We can all do our bit to help keep our planet green!
