Green Cleaning – Learn the Basics

We live in a time when the environment is put second. We seem to forget that we are the ones who depend on Mother Nature, not the other way around. There are so many chemicals we constantly use and we don’t even think about it.

Take for example, our food, can you remember when was the last time you tasted something which is 100% natural. We’re get sick more often compared to the past generation and we continue to use more and more chemicals.

How to Avoid Toxic Cleaning Solutions?

Next time you’re looking for a detergent for your home, you should pay attention to the label. If you spot any warning labels, don’t purchase the item as it will contain toxins and can harm your health. It is proven that some chemicals can cause allergies, asthma and even cancer if you’re exposed to their influence for too long. In the best case scenario you’ll greatly reduce the air quality in your home and weaken your immune system.

You can also hire a professional cleaning company who specialises in using eco-friendly products and methods that have minimal toxins in, which will reduce the amount of harm that is caused to your health. For commercial cleaning in Worthing, take a look here.

How to Make Your Own Cleaning Solutions?

We’ll start with something simple – an all-purpose cleaner you can use for almost any surface and carpet, rug, upholstery stain cleaner. All the recipes which I’ll give you are easy to make and the ingredients are cheap. Benefits of DIY supplies.

Here is the list and further on I’ll give you thorough instructions. Citrus fruit peels, brown sugar, yeast, baking or washing soda and hydrogen peroxide.

All-purpose Green Cleaner

You’ll need a container with a lid large enough to hold two cups of citrus peels, seven tablespoons of brown sugar and a litre of water. There has to be some space because during the fermentation gas will be released.

The first thing you have to do is dissolve the sugar, then add the peels and finally one tablespoon of yeast to accelerate the whole process. After three weeks your all-purpose detergent will be ready.

Make sure you check it every other day and open the lid in order to release the gas caused by fermentation and shake it. When the solution is ready you’ll have to filter it, use a coffee filter or cheesecloth.

Keep in mind it is concentrated and you’ll have to dilute it if you want to rinse vegetables or fruit. Use it in 1:1 proportion for cleaning windows and countertops. Since it is organic and doesn’t contain chemicals you can also use it to clean the microwave.
