5 Edible, Old-Fashioned, & Eco-Friendly Cleaning Products
Clean like grandma did! Here are 5 edible, old-fashioned products that are great at keeping your cleaning regimen eco-friendly.
The obvious for some, but still news-worthy. White vinegar cuts grease, removes stains and soap scum, and (with baking soda), and can be used to clean toilets. And ,when mixed with water, it can be used to kill mold and mildew.
This can also be used to kill mold and mildew, but in an odorless way.
Another fruit worthy of cleaning with is the lemon! Apply to stove and countertops to remove grease stains. You can also use it as a bleaching agent for stains on clothing! With lemon oil (10 drops to 2Tbsp lemon juice) and a few drops of jojoba oil, you can even use lemon juice to clean and polish wood furniture!
Speaking of polishing wood furniture, olive oil can be used for the same purpose, with a bit of vinegar (three parts olive oil to one part vinegar), or lemon juice (two parts olive oil to one part lemon juice). Olive oil can also be used to lubricate wood furniture.
A bit different from furniture, baking pans and tinware can be taken care of with potatoes. Dipped in a bit of salt (or you can do the salt scrub later), a potato cut in half can be used to remove rust from baking pans and tinware.
So clean green, like grandma did, with tasty products!
