Green Makeover Under the Kitchen Sink
Is your under the kitchen sink space where you store your cleaning supplies? Does it look like it is a shelf from a store – filled with all brands and types of cleaning products? Why are you doing this to yourself and your family? Haven’t you heard of green cleaning? This is the safest, cheapest and a very easy way to keep your home clean and hygienic and your family safe and healthy.
You should switch from chemical products to natural and safe products as soon as you finish reading this article. This article will tell you how to do a green makeover of your under the kitchen sink space.
Just throw away all chemical cleaning detergents that you have. You can keep simple products such as liquid dishwashing detergents, window cleaners (but when you run out of them do not buy new ones), these are just the ones that are the mildest and do not do as harm as other cleaning products.
If you do your research right and comprehensively you will find that you can make every kind of cleaning product or disinfectant on your own. All products that you use have a green alternative that you can make. Of course, there are very few cleaning products that are labeled green and safe and they really are. But you can prepare your own and rest assured that you know what you are cleaning your home with and that all ingredients are natural and safe.
Also, to go the extra mile and be sure that you have gone all the way – stock up on reusable cleaning supplies – dishcloths instead of paper towels, disinfect your sponges instead of throwing them away every two weeks or so, buy microfiber cloths – they are efficient and handy, re-use old toothbrushes to clean with.
There are a number of household ingredients that are used in all homemade cleaning supplies, used by professional cleaners like cleaning service Ealing as well. Make sure you stock up on white vinegar, baking soda, washing soda, rubbing alcohol, and some others.
Stock up on these ingredients and make your own natural cleaning products to replace your chemical-induced detergents. Lemons and lemon juice are also extremely useful in various cleaning solutions.
Also, other very important things to keep in your renewed and improved green under the sink space are essential oils. They are versatile and can be added to all green cleaning products to enhance their power or to just add a nicer smell.
Products such as Castile or Dawn soaps, Borax, and a few others are also things that you should keep under your kitchen sink and use for cleaning. There are a lot of cleaning solutions that include these ingredients.
With a little more persistence and desire, you can make all kinds of cleaning products on your own that are green, safe, non-toxic and efficient. Not to mention that you will save a huge amount of money on cleaning supplies. Instead of spending a ton of money on the best cleaning products you could spend much less and stock up on ingredients and products that will last you a very long time.
Plus some products like baking soda and white vinegar can be used alone without even having to mix them in a cleaning solution.
Going green with your cleaning supplies is not something that will happen in a single day but the sooner you start, the sooner your home will be free of toxic chemicals. Soon you will notice the improvement in your home. Go green and protect yourself and your family from the hazardous chemicals. You will have a clean and healthy space for your family.
