1. Make your own cleaning products
White vinegar is a great cleaning friend. White vinegar is strong enough to remove grime from smooth surfaces. However, it can clean hardwood floors without causing damage. You can also use white vinegar to neutralize unpleasant odors. Mix water and vinegar to clean the countertops and backsplash areas in the kitchen. The same method can be used to clean the walls of the bathtub and the toilet. You can heat the cleaning solution in a microwave to loosen the grime and then spray it on the area. Allow the solution to sit for a few minutes. Rinse the solution and then rinse. You can also use vinegar to make a substitute for fabric softener. This is especially useful for those with sensitive skin.
- Baking Soda
Baking soda can be used in place of expensive, store-bought detergents. To remove dirt particles, sprinkle some baking soda on a sponge or towel. Another advantage is its deodorizing properties. Mix water and baking soda until you have a paste. Apply it to the areas that are affected. Allow the paste to rest for around 15 minutes before dirt can be removed.
- Use rubbing alcohol to clean the glass.
2. You can use old rags to replace paper towels
Paper towels are not the best option if you want to save money. A rag is actually more absorbent than a towel. You can wash them in the washer if they get dirty.
3. Brass shines with Ketchup
This isn’t a joke. To shine brass, you can use ketchup! It isn’t necessary to purchase a brass detergent that costs a lot. All your problems will be solved if you have ketchup stored in your refrigerator. Use a little bit of ketchup to scrub the surface. Rinse off with water.
4. Dish soap for the win
It is not common knowledge that dish soap can also be used to wash dishes. It can also be used to remove stains. You can also use it to remove stains from carpets if you drop something on it. Do not rush to the nearest store to buy expensive carpet stain removal products.
5. Make your own laundry soap
It doesn’t cost much to make your laundry detergent at home. One cup of washing soda, one cup of borax and a few drops essential oil are all you will need. You also need a bar of grated soap. Begin by grating the soap. Next, mix the borax and washing soda. Mix all ingredients together by adding a few drops of essential oils. Place in a sealed container or jar.
