by Maid Just Right Team - March 10, 2018

When we think of cleaning, we think of harsh chemicals and the plethora of cleaning products which would have to be bought. Though, believe it or not this may not always be the case; there are a variety of ways in which you can clean your home, without having to resort to specialized cleaning materials.

Oven Cleaning: Baking Soda

All you need to do here is to simply make a paste of baking soda and water; lather it on the bottom of your oven, leave for a few hours and just wipe it off. This is not only a time saving tip, as you don’t have to keep at it to scrub your oven clean but it also rids your oven of any chemicals, that is, it keeps your oven chemical free.

Natural Cleaner: Citrus Infused Vinegar

The process here too simple enough though it’s better to prepare this beforehand as it takes some time to be fully immersed. Take a jar and fill it with organic citrus peels, next pour white vinegar (undiluted) over them- this concoction needs to be left for up to two weeks. Afterwards, simply strain out the vinegar and utilize it as a natural cleaner- from mopping floors, to disinfecting surfaces and even on to window cleaning– dilute with water; it does it all!

Clean Dishwasher: Vinegar Once Again

With the continuous onslaught of dirty dishes, at times the dishwasher can home a certain unpleasant musty odour- which can affect the freshness of your dishes when they leave the dishwasher. In order to alleviate the aforementioned, what can be done is that you can place a dishwasher safe bowl or jar with two cups of vinegar and place it on the top rack. Without placing any other dishes in the dishwasher, just run a hot cycle- and you’re free from that pesky musty odour.

Natural Carpet Cleaner: Bi-carb Soda

For those of you who have carpets, you know that a simple vacuuming exercise just doesn’t yield the same freshness as time goes by, with the carpet picking up on various odours. Therefore, in order to make your carpet fresh, you can make your own carpet freshener; mix a cup of bicarb soda and fifteen to twenty drops of your favourite essential oil- personally jasmine has always been the perfect option for us. Lightly sprinkle the mixture on the carpet and vacuum as per normal- be sure to let the mixture sit on the carpet for fifteen minutes or so.

We are sure these few tips ought to set the right note in the cleanliness of your home, and rest assured with their adoption you are likely to get the same results we did.
