A Clean Home Without Toxic Products

Your home can be spic and span without the use of any hazardous chemicals. It's true, you can have sterile kitchen counters and freshly scented laundry without using bleach, irritating and overly-perfumed soaps and heavy-duty cleansers. What are the alternatives you ask? To begin with, some of the most powerful disinfectants, antibacterial and generally-efficient cleaning products are things we keep in our kitchen and use in our food: lemon, vinegar and baking soda! Not to mention that they are inexpensive, diluted with water these make excellent products to clean your sink, top, kitchen floor, the oven and much more.
You can give a pleasing scent to these natural cleaning solution blends using essential oils like Geranium, Lavender, Lemon and Orange. This will help disinfect and also keep away insects like mosquitoes and spiders. For extra antibacterial power when washing clothes or anything else, add Tea Tree Oil. A powerful oil that can get rid of many skin disorders and is in general a helpful oil to keep around.
