How to clean the bathroom with natural cleansers?
For washing glass surfaces, you can use a 5% solution of vinegar, which is most conveniently sprayed with a spray gun. And do not be disturbed by the unpleasant smell – for an hour in the bathroom, there will be no trace of it, as well as harmful chemicals.
Bath and sink can be cleaned by mixing liquid soap with half a glass of baking soda and a few drops of antibacterial essential oil (eg lavender or tea tree oil).
To get rid of grayish and yellowish deposits of mineral salts, cover the surface with a cloth impregnated with vinegar, leave for 30 minutes, then rinse.
Living room and windows.
Since baking soda is an absorbent with a deodorizing effect, it is suitable for cleaning carpeting. Just put soda on a fresh stain, for example, from wine, leave for a couple of hours (preferably at night) and vacuum. Soda also neutralizes unpleasant odors.
Windows and mirrors are very convenient to wipe with vinegar – they are not only well cleaned, but remain shiny much longer. Simply dilute the vinegar with water and apply to the surface with a paper towel and then dry it.
