Make your own cleaners for baths and sinks
Commercial products are simply not needed for jobs such as cleaning sinks and baths. These are easy items to clean with very basic ingredients and you don't even need to use much elbow grease. Bicarbonate of soda is abrasive enough to remove body oils and soap scum very easily.
If you have hard water and mineral deposits have built up below the taps in your bath try using vinegar or lemon juice on a soft cloth. Rub and rinse well afterwards.
Lets get started and make some healthy cleaners. You will have these ingredients in your pantry right now, so let's get started.
Clean your sinks & baths:
Cleaning method 1:
This is my number one cleaner for sinks and baths. Put a 50-50 mixture of white vinegar and dish washing liquid into a spray bottle and shake a little. Put a couple of squirts onto a damp cloth and wipe out the sink. It works like a dream and I would, now, never use anything else on my sinks. Brilliant. Let me know if it works well for you too.
Cleaning method 2:
Sprinkle bicarbonate of soda on a wet cloth. Rub the sink well and rinse off to prevent a hazy film. This works wonderfully well.
Cleaning method 3:
Combine 1 and 2/3 cups of bicarbonate of soda with 1/2 cup liquid soap and 1/2 cup water. Mix well and then add 2 tablespoons white vinegar. Don't put the vinegar into the mixture until it is already well combined. Rub on with a damp cloth and rinse well.
Did you know:
Chemical-based air fresheners and deodorizers add dangerous chemicals to the air. They work by using a nerve-deadening chemical that interferes with our sense of smell. It coats nasal passage with an oily film, by masking an offending odour with a different odour, or by deactivating the odour.
Air fresheners are made from chemicals that are either already proven to be carcinogenic or they are suspected of being carcinogenic. Aerosol air fresheners release chemicals in such tiny particles that they can be inhaled deeply into lungs. From there they are transferred into the blood stream.
The plug-in style of air fresheners are able to break chemicals down into even smaller particles.
