Safe DIY Household Cleaners

With the popularity of green cleaning today and people becoming more environmentally aware, many companies make use of the term “green”, “biodegradable”, “natural” and similar terms just to get consumers’ attention. Do not easily be swayed by them. Do your research and only trust cleaning products and home cleaning Dubai that have been tested and proven as fully eco-friendly, like I Hate Cleaning. But for now, you can use these alternative methods or make these cleaning products yourself and try them when cleaning your home.

  • Dusting: if you have been using furniture polish when dusting, you can skip them now. Instead, use microfiber cloths that can capture dust more effectively. And for that added shine, just add a little olive oil
  • Sink cleaner: throw out those toxic solutions that you use in cleaning your sink and use this mixture as an alternative: 1/2 cup baking soda and 6 drops of essential oil such as lavender or lemon. Wash you sink with hot water, then sprinkle the baking soda mixture all over it and pour 1/4 cup of vinegar on top. Scrub your sink with a damp sponge, rinse again with hot water, and you’re done
  • Carpet cleaner: a mixture of 3/4 cup vegetable-based liquid soap, 3 cups water and 10 drops peppermint essential oil will make a good carpet shampoo. Just rub it into your carpet using a sponge, let it dry and then vacuum thoroughly

These DIY cleaners are effective alternatives to the otherwise toxic products that people typically use. You are doing yourself and the planet a favour when you switch to these.

And for that professional green cleaning for your home, using 100% organic cleaning materials, you can always count on I Hate Cleaning. Visit their website today to learn more about them and the services they offer.
