Eco-Friendly Cleaning Solutions

If you have tried and tested multiple expensive cleaning solutions that sometimes do nothing but waste your money, maybe it is time to take a greener approach. When you look at the warning labels on the detergent bottles you keep under the sink you might want to reconsider using them altogether. There are everyday products that you can use as substitutes for the ones you find on the market, which can aid you in any domestic cleaning task.

Here are some of them:

–        Alcohol – this may come as a surprise to some, but alcohol can indeed be used as a great cleaner. Some cleaning companies have expanded on this idea, developing a product under the label of rubbing alcohol. The applications it has are many and all of them are quite potent – it can be used for disinfecting, cleaning, de-frosting windows and even simple refreshing. It can do exceptionally well in the bathroom and toilet, returning the shine to surfaces while also disinfecting them. Additionally, you can use it to clean mirrors and tiles. The only thing you need to keep in mind about rubbing alcohol is not a widely available product that you can buy from every store. It may take some research on where to buy it.

–        Cola – this popular drink can actually prove very useful in cleaning as well, which is something that many people would find funny, but it is true. Among its most popular uses is toilet cleaning. All you have to do is pour the cola, wait some time before scrubbing with a brush and then flushing. The result will be sparkling. Cola can be used to remove rust from metal objects, thanks to its phosphoric ingredient. If you have a collection of coins, you can soak them in the liquid and make then shine as new.

–        Lemon – lemon juice is amazing at cleaning, disinfecting and deodorizing countertops. It can do what professional cleaners can with ease. It will easily remove stains from many types of surfaces, glassware, microwaves and cookers. Smells such as fish and garbage can linger in your room for days, but with lemon juice they will be gone in no time at all. Use lemon on your garbage disposal for perfect sanitation.

–        Toothpaste – in case you didn’t know, you can use toothpaste for some cleaning service. Try it on your kitchen and bathroom chrome details. It can do wonders with polishing silverware and cleaning CDs. If you want to have a pair of clean and minty-fresh headlights, you can suggest using toothpaste.

These everyday products may not have been designed for cleaning, but they can certainly be used for this purpose. You don’t have to be afraid to experiment. If others have tested and tried it, why don’t you give it a shot as well?

Beat the End- What is great about these few cleaning products is that they are everyday products that a prepper may have so it just gives you another use for a product you already have.  Being able to dual purpose materials is very important.  That does require some creativity which is also a hand skill.  If you have some other great ideas let me know in the comments.
