Cleaning Tips

Alternative household cleaning products - Part 1

Quite often the chemicals from commercial cleaning supplies can aggravate your allergies. Did you know that basic household ingredients can produce the same results? Here is a sampling of how certain household ingredients can aid in cleaning. Keep in mind that some people with allergies cannot tolerate the smell of ammonia or bleach.

  • Ammonia - cuts grease, strips the wax off floors, and cleans windows
  • Baking soda - cleans, deodorizes, scours, polishes, and removes stains
  • Bleach - whitens practically anything and removes mold and mildew
  • Borax - alternative for bleach, deodorizes, prevents mold, removes stains and boosts the cleaning power of soap
  • Cornstarch - cleans and deodorizes carpets and rugs
  • Ketchup - cleans copper
  • Lemon juice - cuts grease and stains on aluminium and porcelain, whitens
  • Salt - makes an abrasive, but gentle, scouring powder
  • Vegetable oil - a furniture polish
  • Washing soda - cuts grease and disinfects
  • White vinegar - cleans windows, shines metal surfaces, removes mildew, stains, grease and wax build-up

Sometimes combining some of the above ingredients creates better cleaners, but remember to NEVER MIX BLEACH AND AMMONIA TOGETHER.
