Natural, DIY cleaning ingredients
Your cupboard might already be full of eco-friendly cleaning products just waiting to work wonders throughout your home. Our favourites include:
Baking soda: Super effective for removing odours and freshening up your space, simply sprinkle it on your carpets, leave for a few hours, and vacuum it all up again.
White vinegar: When it comes to natural, effective cleaning, this stuff is about as close to magic as you can get. Break the white vinegar out of the kitchen and just watch as it helps make your home sparkle – mix it with lukewarm water, dab on dirt and stains, blot with water, and enjoy the results.
Essential oils: If you want to add a little extra zest to your baking powder or vinegar concoction, mix in essential oils. Our favourite is lavender, but you can pretty much go with whatever scents and sensations you enjoy. Just be sure to check they’re tint-free and safe for tiny hands, feet, and noses, if you have kids or pets around.
