By Clifford Woods
The world is discovering the need for cleaning products which are easy to use and safe for the environment. These natural products can be home-made and even when bought; they are not as expensive as one may have been lead to believe. Use of natural products enables us to protect the surroundings and out families and friends.
Various organizations have realized and are emphasizing the natural and organic house. The various advantages which are gained, like keeping the water sources free from pollution, is of immense current and future value.
Water is one of the natural elements that we have in abundance around us. It can be used along with vinegar to clean the pipes which drain water away from various parts of a house like the kitchen sink and bathroom. Because of the acidic condition of a mixture like this, one can be assured that harmful microorganisms like mold and even bacteria that sometimes grow in these pipes, are neutralized.
When one is in need of preventing bad odor in the house or kitchen, this vinegar mixture is also an option. This is quite important as it does not pose any sort of health risk to the user and also achieve excellent results when used. Vinegar can be effectively mixed with water and used as a cleaner in the kitchen and bathrooms in the home. This is very much safer than the use of air fresheners which can trigger allergic reactions in people with respiratory type problems. Vinegar also kills harmful microorganisms due to its acidic nature.
Surfaces in the house like sinks or wooden counters can be stained when they come in contact with certain chemicals. One solution to this has been found in the use of lemon water. When used to scrub off stains, it can be quite effective. Additionally, lemon water combined with baking soda has been shown to be very potent in getting results when used to clean off most any kind of stains.
Controlling pests should be done in such as way as to not only eliminate the pests but should not leave behind sort of residue that could adversely effect the respiratory system of a person. Locating all the hiding places of spiders and there webs and getting rid of them and keeping surfaces clean, is a safe way of doing this. Finding their breeding sites is also quite helpful as this removes a whole generation of pest and helps keep a home clean and allergy free.
Cleanliness is also achieved by keeping your household items well organized; pests love a disorganized area – all those lovely, dark places to hide! Old or very rarely used items should be neatly stored or disposed safely, like in a dust bin. Old newspapers and books can be safely kept in boxes for future use. If no longer of value, these should be recycled.
In keeping a natural and organic house, it is a requirement to ensure that the air you breathe in is free from harmful particles. Good ventilations and a routine cleaning schedule with the use of natural products and beneficial microorganisms’ helps quite a bit in maintaining a healthy environment. Believe it or not, regular washing and drying of clothes helps keep them fresh and reduce odor in the household.
Cleaning a house can quite a task if things are left to accumulate too much. The kitchen should be cleaned after each meal. It is a lot easier to clean a pot used to cook rise when the rice is soft than when it has been left to harden. Therefore, embrace the need to keep the house and kitchen clean regularly and pay particular attention to the cleanliness of the kitchen and bathrooms all the time, so as to reduce the risk of stubborn stains or bad odor and or health damaging conditions.
