It’s that time of the year again when spring cleaning is at the top of our to-do list. While it might be easy to grab the first cleaner bottle we have under our cabinet, some cleaners contain chemicals that aren’t necessarily the best for our health. Luckily, there are alternatives that we can create ourselves, like DIY soft scrub cleaners, to help us get rid of that soap scum and build up.
Using non-toxic ingredients to clean can become quite beneficial to you and your home. These simple ingredients can be found already in your pantry which can help you be cost-efficient since you eliminate purchasing a handful of cleaners made for different areas of your home. It’s also a great way to reduce the use of toxic chemicals where you and your family spend most of their time.
Plus cleaners made with non-toxic ingredients can help you get out those tough stains without the potential harm other toxic chemicals can do to sensitive skin if you’re not wearing gloves. Due to its versatility, baking soda is an excellent cleaning agent which can be used to remove tough stains, eliminate foul odors, and clean tough areas like tile grout. Incorporating Castile soap into this DIY was the icing on the cake. If you aren’t familiar with it, Castile soap is a vegetable oil based soap used to cut through grime. Plus, using our Fresh Picked Citrus blend adds a natural, fresh aroma to your cleaner rather than using synthetic fragrances.
This DIY is just what you need to nail spring cleaning!
