We have constantly heard about the environment getting affected by toxic chemicals etc., but do we really adopt techniques to fight against it? Our planet earth is under a huge threat because many people demand to get newly made products for their luxury homes. This is how the landfills get over-populated and the toxins from these landfills increase the level of carbon in the atmosphere. Why not bring a positive change in the environment? We have compiled a few eco-friendly cleaning tips that you can adopt to clean your luxury homes. These tips will help you make a difference and not waste money on toxic products.
MAKE THOSE COUNTERS SHINE
Cleaning your homes is just like keeping yourself clean. It is a necessity to maintain a healthy and hygienic environment within the house. Cleaning can be very easy with chemical products, detergents, sprays, etc. but the impact that these toxic products have is beyond our imagination. The kitchen is a place where food is cooked and that’s why it is extremely essential for it to be neat and tidy. You can find many items in your kitchen that will help you clean the counters or any stains on sinks. You can use a mixture of baking soda and warm water to make your counters shine. This will not cause any toxins to spread in the atmosphere and will also save money.
EASY GLASS CLEANING RECIPE
Glasses on your windows or mirrors can catch finger prints and different marks immediately, that’s why cleaning any glass in your home should be a regular habit. Do not use stain removing products that are packed with toxic chemicals and are not only harmful for the environment but also harmful for your health. You can simply create your own glass cleaner by adding white or cedar vinegar in water. You can also add fruit essential oils for a pleasant odor.
MAKE YOUR FLOORS LOOK CLEAN
The flooring of your home catches a lot of dirt, stains, and grease. Floor needs to be cleaned on a daily basis and many people opt for cleaning detergents and chemically produced floor cleaners that clean the floor temporarily and damage its shine. Also, it is very harmful for the indoor environment of your home and causes irritation when inhaled. The best way to clean the floorings of your homes is by making your own recipe that is not harmful for the environment. You will need to take some warm water and simply add some drops of vinegar to it. This will be the perfect floor cleaner and you can use a fiber cloth or mop to sweep the floor.
ADOPT NATURAL INGREDIENTS FOR YOUR HOME CLEANING
Cleaning your home and keeping it in a perfect shape can be really tough. But using harmful products to get rid of the dirt is simply selfish. We need to think about the environment and use environmental friendly natural products to avoid damaging the ozone layer. Home cleaning can be done effectively using natural ingredients and also keeps your things from damage.
