Do you have a dirty floor? Are the windows in your kitchen stained with coffee and tea stains? Does your living room look like it’s been hit by a hurricane? If so, then we’ve got some good news for you. You don’t need to spend hours scrubbing down every inch of your home. This blog post is full of easy DIY cleaning solutions that will get rid of dirt, grease, grime and more without any hassle at all.
Vinegar and water
This is the ultimate cleaner – it can be used on anything from floors to counters, clothes, windows, air vents…anything you need. Mix a half cup of white vinegar with one gallon of lukewarm water in a bucket or spray bottle (depending) and get scrubbing. This solution removes grease stains off countertops easily without any elbow grease required at all.
A few drops of lemon juice will also help cut through tough dirt that’s been caked onto surfaces like tile grout if needed. It doesn’t have an odor which makes this perfect for those hard-to-clean areas such as laundry rooms where strong odors linger throughout the day.
Dish soap and water
Dish soap is a great all-around cleaner for many different surfaces. Mix in some dish liquid with lukewarm water and get to scrubbing. It will loosen up grease, dirt, stains; all that good stuff without any special tools required at all. Just be sure not to use it on waxed or polished floors because of the high suds content – just wipe it away quickly before it can create a slippery surface. For those hard-to-reach places like car seats or TV screens, dishwashing detergents come as foams now too which are perfect for these tougher jobs.
The added bonus is that you know exactly what’s going into your cleaning solution so there are no worries about weird chemicals or anything that may come with store-bought cleansers.
This is a great product to use if you have stubborn stains on your floor, toilet bowl, sink, and other surfaces like grout which can be difficult to remove with just water and detergent. It’s also perfect for cleaning up tough grease from ovens or cookware without any harsh chemicals at all – it’ll give your pots and pans a sparkling shine after being cleaned this way. Just make sure you rinse the surface well before using it so there isn’t any leftover residue (that could ruin food). Rinse down sinks too as they often collect buildup of soap scum over time which will cause leaks in the faucet drainage pipes over time. Remember to always wear gloves when using this product as it can cause skin irritation if not.
The above-mentioned DIY home cleaners are great however if you still want to try a cleaner then it is best to go for an environmentally safe all-purpose cleaner like Simple Green.
This is a cleaner and deodorizer in one – perfect for those smelly areas of the home that just won’t go away no matter how many times you clean them. It’s specifically designed with natural ingredients which means there are no harsh chemicals that could damage surfaces or carpets like bleach, ammonia or alcohol might do. For stains on your carpeting such as red wine, berry juice, chocolate milk; simply spray some simple green onto the spot then use paper towels to dab at any residue until gone. You’ll be left with fresh-smelling carpets without having to use any strong odors from other products. However, it should be noted that it does not work on all materials so you have to be very careful while using it.
This product is great for cleaning ovens (especially if you use chemical cleaners) as well as toilets because they can be difficult places to scrub down manually especially without any protective gear like gloves. Mix baking soda with dish soap then add hot water until it forms a paste before rubbing onto surfaces that need attention such as grates, stovetops, fridge shelves…anything where grease has built up over time will work here.
