Homemade cleaner is a great alternative to have in your home. You can pour it into spray bottles and use it as needed. However, it is worth learning how to make them well enough to actually be effective. With them you can successfully clean your entire house.
Soda in the starring role
In the first place, it is worth paying attention to baking soda. It’s the one that has served our grandmothers for many years and makes even tough dirt and rust come off. Either a paste made of baking soda and lemon juice or a lighter preparation made of water and baking soda works best. It will even be perfect for cleaning the bathtub, sink, sink, as well as the toilet or bidet. You may also be tempted to apply it to the grout as well, but then you will still need a sharp brush with which to wipe off the stubborn dirt.
Lemon juice to fight dirt
It has not been known for a long time that fruits have many uses, especially when it comes to the acids they contain. Lemon juice is very popular, as it visibly brightens the surface of tiles or countertops, and actively fights rust. It can be added to virtually any household liquid. It will certainly improve the effectiveness of all home preparations, as well as make the house smell great.
Vinegar for special tasks
Anyone who loves green solutions at home knows that vinegar has wonderful cleaning properties. It helps basically everywhere, from the mirror to the refrigerator to the bathroom. It removes soap smudges, rust, as well as scale, and actively fights fungus.
Home remedy in several ways
For the kitchen and bathroom, a mixture of vinegar and baking soda will work best. The proportions are 6 tablespoons of vinegar and one cup of baking soda.
For wood, a bucket of warm water, a cup of vegetable oil, and half a cup of vinegar will work best. Mix everything thoroughly and you can immediately use it to clean the floor and parquet.
For stubborn dirt, a solution of 2 tablespoons of vinegar, 4 tablespoons of lemon juice, 3 tablespoons of salt, as well as 1 cup of hot water will work perfectly. You can mix everything in a spray bottle and use it right away on tough dirt.
