HEALTHY CLEANING ALTERNATIVES

Kitchen and Bathroom Sink

Mix a half a cup of bicarbonate of Soda with a few drops of your favourite essential oil and spread in sink. Add one quarter a cup of vinegar. After the fizzing dies down, clean with a nylon scrubber and wash with hot water.

Oven

Use the oven to heat a dish of water and let the stream soften any grim (use a strong dish). After the oven is cool scrub it with a paste that is equal parts vinegar, bicarbonate of soda and salt.

Bathroom Mould

Chlorine will clean this, but it is rather harsh, especially on our breathing. Mix ¼ teaspoon of tea tree oil and lavender oil in a spray bottle with about 2 cups of water. Spray this on the bathroom mildew and mould.

Dusting

Use a microfiber cloth. This captures far more dust than other cloths, and does away with most cleaning agents.

Delicate cloth and lace

Soak delicates in Orvus (sodium lauryl sulphate). These breaks down 99% of dirt and stains, with no scrubbing.
