Cleaning the oven

First, apply a mixture of baking soda, a little washing-up liquid, and water all over the oven. Then make a spray of equal parts water and vinegar, take a sponge, and clean the whole oven. For more soiled appliances, you can use dissolved baking soda and leave it on for a few hours.

Carpet cleaning

Sprinkle the stains on the carpet with cornstarch and wait for about 20 minutes. Then clean with a dry brush and vacuum cleaner. You can also use cornstarch to clean greasy stains from clothes.

Cleaning children’s toys

Make a disinfectant for toys by mixing orange essential oil, baking soda, vinegar, and water. Use in a spray bottle.

Cleaning the bathroom

You can easily remove mold in the bathroom with the help of vinegar. In a spray bottle, mix equal parts water and vinegar, spray the surfaces, and then clean, just like with regular detergent.

You can use three parts of baking soda and one part water to clean the joints. A creamy paste should be obtained. Using a toothbrush, rub the paste into the joints, leave it on for about 15 minutes and then remove it with a sponge.

Window cleaning

Take a bottle with a spray and mix in it 1 tbsp. vinegar and 3 tbsp. ammonia. Fill the bottle with water and shake well. Spray the windows and then clean. The smell of vinegar will evaporate, so don't worry about it.

Cleaning waste pipes

If the sewer is slightly clogged, you can only deal with a glass of baking soda to pour into the clogged pipe. Pour vinegar into it afterward. After 20 minutes you can rinse with two glasses of hot water. If necessary - repeat the procedure until the desired effect is achieved.

Polishing of wooden surfaces

The best natural means of polishing wooden surfaces is olive oil. You can also use it to polish utensils and boards.

For disinfection and refreshing of the cutting board, for example, use lemon. Do not mix lemon with other ingredients as it is strong enough. It is extremely effective in combating stubborn fats.
