Natural Ways to Clean
Nobody wants to choose between safety and performance when it comes to bringing products into our homes. Sure, we love natural products but do they really work as well? The answer is “yes” … but you have to pick the right ones. Here are some of my favorite natural ways to keep things clean around the house.
When life gives you lemons, make an awesome non-toxic household cleaner! Lemons work as a natural bleaching agent and deodorizer.
Here are some ideas:
Dip a halved lemon in sea salt and then use it to scrub your cutting board. It will clean the stains and kill germs.
Soak your plastic food containers in lemon juice overnight to remove smells.
Skip the bleach when doing laundry and instead add a cup of fresh lemon juice to the load - it will help brighten colors and make your whites whiter. Plus, it smells lemony fresh.
Another naturally amazing and effective cleaner is corn. It’s naturally absorbent and makes an unbelievable kitty litter.
I was super excited to find World’s Best Cat Litter™ because it’s the only litter that harnesses the concentrated power of corn so you get a cleaner litter box with less litter, less hassles and ZERO WORRIES!
It’s pet, people and planet-friendly. Instead of using traditional clay ingredients, World’s Best Cat Litter™ uses corn, which is a sustainable ingredient that is farmed, not mined. They use a really cool patented process to compress the corn into concentrated granules that quickly trap nasty pet smells deep inside the litter. It clumps on contact so you waste less time cleaning while using less litter! Plus there are no added chemicals, dyes, or perfumes. And you and your cat can breath easy knowing there is no silica dust! World’s Best Cat Litter™ has six different formulas that all offer the concentrated power of corn.
And last, but not least - use club soda to clean!
You can add it to a spray bottle for a safe and effective window cleaner.
Water your plants with club soda once a week (plants love the minerals in the soda, which helps them grow)
The carbonation in club soda makes it a fantastic rust remover
And my favorite trick is to soak my wedding rings overnight in a glass of club soda to keep them sparkly!
