Five eco-friendly cleaning hacks
There are so many easy ways to implement eco-friendly habits into your cleaning routine. Chemical cleaning products are harmful to the environment and the residue from their use pollutes the water supply. The water filled with toxic substances harms the animals and plant life making it impossible for them to survive and often destroying the habitats they build. However, commercial chemical cleaning agents do not have to be the end all option. Here are five natural and eco-friendly solutions to household cleaning that avoid using harsh chemicals
- To remove hard water stains naturally, wrap towels soaked in vinegar around the area and let it sit for an hour. This works great on rusty pipes.
- Swap the sponge! Use a half of a lemon dipped in salt to scrub stains on glass surfaces. Ideal for getting rid of stubborn shower marks.
- Make a concoction of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide in your sink to scrub away dirt.
- Mix baking soda and coconut oil together to rid tougher and stickier substances.
- Make ice cube toilet cleaning pods with 1 cup of baking soda, ¼ cup citric acid, 1 tablespoon dish soap, and freeze in an ice cube tray. Drop into the toilet to melt, scrub, and then flush for a squeaky-clean surface.
