Chemical cleaning Products vs Home made cleaning products


Advertisements for “new and better” cleaning supplies flood home magazines, but although many of these highly touted products claim to contain ingredients that can miraculously wipe out dirt and grime, you should think twice before using these chemicals in your home. In fact, they are often no better than traditional cleaning compounds you can make yourself. In this article you'll discover countless ways to clean everything in your house, using simple mixtures of inexpensive, everyday staples that you probably already have on hand.

Homemade cleaning solutions are not only easy on your pocketbook, they get the job done effortlessly, without harming you or your possessions. What's more, most of them have a long and honourable history—your grandmother most likely relied on many of these recipes before commercial products became so readily available. So before you run to the local supermarket to load up on cleaning supplies, look to your refrigerator and pantry. You may already have everything you need.

For instance, did you know that a simple solution of lime and salt is a great antidote for rust or that ketchup makes an excellent copper polish? And there are alternatives to some of the tools as well, like using newspaper rather than costly paper towels to clean windows, or hanging dried herbs to refresh your home instead of expensive commercial room deodorisers.

So stock your cleaning cupboard with lemons, baking soda, white vinegar, and salt and set to work. You'll be amazed at the sparkling results—not to mention your shining bank account! The following slides contain all you need to make your home sparkling with out those commercial chemicals.
