We often over-complicate the process with an abundance of products. The spray for the shower is different than the spray for the counters which is different than the wash for the floors. Over time you've compiled a small army of plastic spray bottles filled with mysterious chemical solutions for every single cleaning task in a home. But, what if it were simpler. What if only a small handful of ingredients and old-fashioned methods were all it took to get a sparkly home?
Thanks to my wonderful friends in the world of Pinterest, I've amassed a small list of some of the wonders that simple cleaning ingredients can do to keep your home germ-/grime-/stain-free and happy.
|Lemons can help whiten dingy linens on the stove. Fill a pot with water and a few slices of fresh lemon; bring the water to a boil. Turn off heat, add linens, and let soak for up to an hour; launder as usual.|
|Coat the inside of your dirty appliance with a paste made from water and baking soda. |
Let stand overnight. Then, don gloves and scour off that grime. Make spotless with a moist cloth.
|Mix one part Dawn dish washing liquid with two parts hydrogen peroxide. |
Pour or spray it directly on fabric stains, and watch it disappear like magic!
Happy cleaning, my friends!
