How to Make Green Cleaning Solutions

Posted by on Jun 20, 2012 in Home Improvement | 0 comments

Many people have began to save a lot of money and living a healthier life by using home made green cleaning solutions. Some of them are more popular than others. Here I will give you a couple of great recipes that I use and the tips for where you can use them.

First of all I use a simple multi purpose cleaning solution, made out of baking soda, white vinegar and water. I mix about 2 cups of warm water – warm because it helps with the dilution of the other ingredients, a tablespoon of white vinegar and 2 teaspoons of baking soda. First I add the vinegar to water, shake a little, then add the baking soda and shake again. I then pour this solution into a spray bottle for comfortable use. I use it on counter tops, coffee tables, windows and furniture.

Sometimes I make a special cleaner for glass. I mix up only water and white vinegar. Only that for cups of water I add 3 tablespoons of white vinegar. I also use a spray bottle, like the cleaners SE15 recommend and sprinkle the solution on the cloth first. This reduces the amount of strokes I leave and simplifies the cleaning overall.

One of the nastiest places to clean is the toilet bowl. Since I’ve got tired of paying for expensive and abrasive cleaners for it, I used a green recipe. The mixture of baking soda and white vinegar works marvellous on the toilet stains. Here’s a tip – mix both in a large containers, since the baking soda and vinegar make a fizzing chemical reaction together. Pick a bottle of about a litre volume and fill a quarter of it with baking soda. Then pour into it one cup of white vinegar. Pour slowly, so to keep the reaction contained. After the fizzing ends the solution will be ready to use.

Removals SE15 say that you also can spare some cash from any floor cleaning solutions. The concoction that I use for my floors, can be used for many types of flooring – tiles, linoleum even coated wood. Take a gallon of water and add to that about a quarter cup of liquid dish soap. For extra glitter, like on linoleum flooring, I would also add a quarter cup of white vinegar. Stir well the whole solution before beginning to clean. Hopefully I’ve been helpful to you with these recipes. Enjoy !
