Everyone wants to rest in a clean, tidy, fragrant home, but few are able to devote the extra time necessary to a good cleaning.
In fact, some people cannot even spend a lot of time in contact with cleaning products because they suffer from allergies. To avoid health complications and, on top of that, save money at the end of the month, learn how to make natural blends to clean your home.
Air freshener: mix 1 liter of water, 1/2 cup of vinegar, 1 tablespoon of baking soda, 1/4 cup of alcohol and 1 tablespoon of fabric softener and pour everything into a container fitted with a spray bottle. The product scents the house and can be used on furniture, cushions and armchairs.
Degreaser: mix 4 cups of white vinegar with 1 cup of baking soda in a bucket. This homemade cleaner removes grease from the walls and makes cleaning easier.
Disinfectant : boil 1 liter of water and, in a bucket, mix it with 1 tablespoon of baking soda and the zest of a lemon or an orange. Stir well and the solution is ready to use immediately.
