Every person desires a clean kitchen. But, in these times, it is substantial to take note that not all of the cleaning products we use in our Richboro homes are safe for our environment. The amazing news is that there are a number of eco-friendly cleaning products conveniently available these days than ever before to make our kitchens sparkle. As a matter of fact, with just a few simple ingredients, most people already have in their cupboards, you can create some safe, effective, natural cleaning products that cost a fraction of store-bought brands that really work just as good or even better.
There are multiple solid reasons why we need to use eco-friendly cleaning products in the kitchen. Harsh chemicals can be very harmful to your skin, eyes, nose, throat, and respiratory system. Not only that, they put up a serious threat to any pets or sensitive members of the household. Other than the negative effects on your health, lots of store-bought cleaning products contain chemicals that can harm the environment as well. Toxic chemicals can, without difficulty, go from our kitchen drain into rivers, lakes, and groundwater, killing vegetation, polluting the soil, and poisoning fish and animals.
Eco-friendly products, on the other hand, make use of simple, non-toxic ingredients that are better for the environment. The problem is that not all brands that claim to be “natural” or “organic” are truly eco-friendly. There are few federal regulations that define which products can claim to be “natural.” Furthermore, there are no regulations that require cleaning product manufacturers to list the ingredients in their products on their packaging.
This would mean that it is contingent on the informed consumer to either do some research to find the truly eco-friendly brands of cleaning products available or make your own. As a matter of fact, some of the best eco-friendly cleaning products you can make or buy contain the same simple ingredients: white vinegar and baking soda. Used commonly with various combinations, these two pantry staples can tackle almost any mess your kitchen can produce. With a variety of regular, versatile cleaning supplies, you could thoroughly clean your entire kitchen, floor to ceiling, without resorting to the harsh chemicals included in many store-bought brands.
Take one example, sealed wood, and tile floors can be cleaned and disinfected with just a little white vinegar, some warm water, and a mop or rag. Admitting that the smell of vinegar may not be all that pleasant, you could easily add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil to make your kitchen smell great. The same thing would apply for cleaning one of the messiest parts of your kitchen: inside the oven. Getting that burned-on gunk off your oven’s interior can be a difficult task. But with just a little baking soda, water, and some patience, you can use a baking soda paste to remove all that tough grime. For an optimum outcome, you may have to allow the baking soda paste to sit overnight before scrubbing.
In a similar way, glass and shiny surfaces can also be cleaned with eco-friendly ingredients. To do so, you can easily mix together some rubbing alcohol, white vinegar, corn starch, and water in a clean spray bottle. Then simply spray and wipe clean with a lint-free or microfiber cloth. It’s a great idea not to use paper towels to clean glass and shiny surfaces since they are not eco-friendly and also tend to leave streaks and bits of paper towel behind.
If making your own cleaning products still don’t seem to be a great plan, there are quite a few eco-friendly options now available. Many of the more popular brands include Mrs. Meyer’s products, Bon Ami cleansers, and Method brand products. These and similar brands guarantee that their products are both safe and effective, not to mention eco-friendly. Most of these brands also use 100% postconsumer recycled plastics in their packaging.
No difference whether you get to buy or make kitchen cleaning products, it may be that once you get started, you would never go back to harsh chemicals again. Not only will you keep protecting yourself and your home, at any rate, but you will also be doing your part for the environment, too.
