More eco cleaning tips.
Along with laundry ( see article here ), I started to use "alternative" products for cleaning the house too; for instance I use a very small quantity ( a teaspoon, more or less ) of washing soda in a bucket of warm water to mop the floors ( not suitable for wooden floor ), they say you can use vinegar in alternative, but I don't like the smell.
To clean the bathroom or the kitchen sink ( we have hard water ) I squeeze half a lemon, put the juice in a little cup, add one or two drops of dish detergent, mix, apply with a sponge and rinse, they come out neat and shiny.
To clean and disinfect kitchen stove, countertop, chopping board and dining table, plus every item that needs disinfection I pour some hydrogen peroxide ( 3% solution, the one you find in supermarkets, grocery stores and pharmacies ) on the sponge/rag and wipe.
I use peroxide to clean inside the fridge....
and to clean and deodorize inside and outside the shoes... but not with the same rag ;D
Actually there are more and more applications for peroxide, washing soda etc....but, for now I share the ones I already employ regularly and know that work.
If you need/want to buy the items I'm talking about, and don't know where, you can check my Amazon store in the right sidebar.
