Natural Cleaning Products

Environmentally Sound House Cleaning Sydney

Many of the chemicals used for cleaning can be harsh on the environment and perhaps harsh on our long term health. Often the problems are not detected until many years later. It is best to be cautious and avoid these cleaning products if at all possible.

Occasionally there is a danger in combining cleaning products. It is very dangerous to combine bleach and ammonia as this produces highly toxic chlorine gas. Never combine chemicals unless the combination is known to be safe.

Green Home Cleaning Sydney

There are some safe alternative that deal with most household cleaning situations.

Baking Soda

This is extremely useful. It will soak up carpet stains, clean glass and tiles. It will even help remove odours from the air. Leave it on a stain overnight and vacuum away the next day.

Baking Soda and Vinegar

This combination was a simple kid’s chemical experiment that produced a lot of froth and bubble. But it is great for cleaning hard surfaces like fridges and table tops.

Vinegar

Even on its own vinegar is useful for cleaning kitchens, bathrooms and other tiled surfaces. Good for cleaning the toilet.

Cornstarch

This can soak up stains in fabric and carpets. Can also clean windows and polish furniture.

Laundry Blue

Used to whiten fabrics, it can also be used to clean tiles and sinks.

Hydrogen Peroxide (3% or less)

Useful as a disinfectant, it can also be used to clean bathrooms and tiles.
Use low concentration peroxide as higher concentrations are harmful to skin and eyes.
