Our homes are filled with a vast array of cleaning products to rid our floors, windows, furniture, dishes, and clothes of dirt and germs. However, most of those products are probably made up of harsh chemicals and harmful pollutants. While they do promise to keep a house spotless, they also are not the best for the environment.

As the world becomes increasingly conscious of the negative impacts of conventional cleaning products, sustainable cleaning solutions have become more popular. Not only will natural cleaners provide you with a sparkling, fresh-smelling home, but they will also help protect the planet and leave you with a cleaner conscience.

Here is the ultimate green cleaning hack that will cut through layers of grime and dust. With just three simple ingredients, you can tackle any area of your home. Prepare to be amazed by their transformative power!

Baking Soda

Remove crusty food and smelly odors from your microwave with baking soda. Just mix a quarter cup of baking soda with a cup of water in a microwave-safe bowl. Then, put the bowl in the microwave and heat it up for five minutes. Afterward, wipe down the interior with a damp cloth. The baking soda paste will help dissolve any tough stains, while its deodorizing properties eliminate odors.

Baking soda can also be used as a booster for your dish soap. Fill your sink with warm water, and then add your dish soap. Place a pinch of baking soda into the suds and swirl the water around. Finally, wash your dishes like normal. The baking soda will help sanitize your dishes, making them even cleaner and shinier.

You can also make an oven cleaner out of baking soda. Before applying the cleaning solution, remove any crumbs from the interior of your oven. Next, combine a half cup of baking soda and water to form a thick paste. Spread the paste inside the oven and let it sit overnight or at least for a few hours. Then, use a damp sponge or cloth to mop it up. Once the oven is clean, dry it off with a clean cloth.

Lemons

Use lemons to make a window cleaner! It’s an effective way to keep your windows streak-free. It’s also not made with toxic materials, so it won’t affect your air quality like chemical-filled products will. Start by adding equal parts lemon juice and water to a spray bottle. Next, spray the concoction on the dirty glass and scrub away.
