Cleaning is a nuisance, even before you actually start. Honestly, I don’t mind cleaning. There’s something that makes me happy about a clean house, but there are still annoying little issues. Trying to find the right cleaning product for the right thing and then having to deal with the aftereffect of the horrid smell, not my favorite. If only there was some way to make it easier…
Wait! There is, as shown by this great video. It explains a bunch of helpful DIY cleaning hacks to help make it easier on you but what I really enjoyed was learning about 3 simple household items that make great DIY natural cleaning products.
So, without further adieu…
Here are 3 products that you can use to make your home shine:
The Magic of Vinegar
Did you know that distilled white vinegar is a natural disinfectant? It has a high alcohol content so it can be used to clean a lot of surfaces. It also has the added benefit of being a natural bug repellant…which will come in handy this summer when the ants try to invade my home.
The Power of Baking Soda
Baking soda is great. I don’t know about others but I still keep baking soda in my refrigerator to keep it smelling nice. Turns out it was a good thing as baking soda is also anti-bacterial. Additionally, it’s a great abrasive so it helps with those hard to get off stains.
The Benefit of Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil, or melaleuca oil, has plenty of advantages. Not only is it completely natural but research states that tea tree oil is antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-infectious, pretty much anti-everything bad. So, it’s a great addition to your cleaning supplies.
What else makes these three simple products so cool? Well, they’re all safe for you and the environment; they’re reasonably priced; and you can use them in a bunch of different combinations to clean almost anything you need. Not to mention both vinegar and baking soda are natural deodorizers which you can use together with other essential oils to have a beautiful scent left afterwards.
So, give the video above a look and see all of the different ways you can use these three handy-dandy items in your home. Or if you don’t have time, go to TalkLocal and find a local professional maid service to get your house spick and span.
