Here is a list of top 5 natural cleaners which you can easily find in your kitchen:
Baking soda has multiple uses when comes to cleaning.
First and foremost, it is an odour absorber. It can be used to neutralise smell from your shoes, carpet or pet blanket.
Just sprinkle it at night and leave till morning. The next day, vacuum and it will be clean and odourless.
It can also be used to clean the oven. For this, make a paste of baking soda with water in the ratio 3:2 and apply it inside the oven (spare the elements). Next day, scrape the baking soda with the help of a plastic or silicone spatula and then clean with a damp cloth. If the dry paste doesn't come out or there is grime still left, spray solution of vinegar and water in equal ratios and then wipe off with a damp cloth. Your oven will be grime free and shiny.
For clogged drains, just pour baking soda down the drain and then pour a glass of vinegar. Let sit for 15 minutes and then rinse with hot water. It will be all clear!
For regular light cleaning of water spots, minimal product residue and dust in bathroom or kitchen, dip a damp sponge into a bowl of baking soda and use this to scrub down tiles, grout and other bathroom and kitchen surfaces. Rinse thoroughly or wipe well with warm water.
Lemons are one of the most well-known products for cleaning as it not only lightens stains but also contains antibacterial and antiseptic qualities.
While doing laundry, pour half a cup of lemon juice during the rinsing in the washer and your white clothes will be as bright as new.
Add a few drops of lemon to water for washing dishes or removing any stains, results are surprising.
You can also put a half cut lemon in the fridge and get rid of bad odour!
Among all the natural cleaners, vinegar is an effective tool with a variety of uses. It works wonderfully with baking soda for clogged drains and lemons for stain removal.
Due to its acidic nature, it inhibits the growth of mould and bacteria and thus is an excellent cleaning agent for bathrooms and kitchen.
For stains on tiles, windows or bathroom surface, mix equal parts of vinegar with water and pour into a spray bottle. Spray it on the stained part and allow it to sit for a few minutes before scrubbing with a brush or sponge. (For extra tough stains, combine baking soda and vinegar.)
Salt is an extraordinary cleaning and deodorizing agent for your entire home. It can kill microorganisms by dehydrating them.
Mix some sea salt in water and wipe your floor, tiles or slabs with it to disinfect the area. You can also spread some salt on the area to be sterilised and leave it for some time. Wipe it with a damp cloth.
To remove grease from iron kitchen utensils, sprinkle a little bit of salt on top of them and let it sit. Remove any extra and wash it as always. You can use the same technique to remove dark marks of coffee and tea on cups.
Hydrogen peroxide should be kept in an opaque bottle as exposure to light kills its effectiveness. Spray it generously on the surface to be cleaned and wait for a few minutes. Let it bubble with the impurities, then scrub it, if needed or just rinse away.
Non-toxic nature of hydrogen peroxide makes it ideal for cleaning places that store food and dishes. Just spray the appliance outside and in, let the solution sit for a few minutes, then wipe clean.
To remove stubborn grout or moulds, mix hydrogen peroxide with white flour to create a thick paste. Apply this to the grout and tiles and cover with plastic wrap. Let it stay overnight and rinse it well with cold water, the next day.
