5 Cheap And Super Easy DIY Organic Cleaners You Can Make
Keeping the nooks and crannies of your unit squeaky clean is essential. Dirt buildup can pose some harmful effects on health, which is why cleaning should be scheduled on a regular basis. However, mopping down floors and scrubbing kitchen countertops are not only tedious and exhausting—maintaining a clean unit is pretty expensive too.
Most detergents and other household cleaning products tend to be expensive. Purchasing them on a weekly basis to keep your unit clean can be a hit to the wallet. If you’re on a budget but still want a dirt-free unit, DIY homemade cleaners instead! Check out these cheap and easy-to-make cleaning solutions you can try in your unit now:
1 | All-purpose cleaner
Baking soda can work wonders at home. It’s a natural all-purpose cleaner which you can use in almost all surface or area at home! To DIY your own homemade cleaner, mix 1/4 cup of baking soda and 1/2 cup of vinegar into 2 liters of water. Place it in a spray bottle, apply in your appliances or sinks, and wipe off with a sponge or a microfiber cloth.
2 | Glass cleaner
Commercially available glass cleaners tend to be expensive. Save on money and create your own homemade glass cleaner by mixing 1/2 cup vinegar and 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol with 2 cups of water. If you want to add scent, you may opt to add in 1 to 2 drops of essential oil in it. Put them in a spray bottle and use it on your unit’s windows or mirrors!
3 | Rug freshener
To keep your rugs dust-free and smell-free, combine 10 drops of an essential oil of your choice with a cup of baking soda. Sprinkle it throughout the carpet, leave it for a few hours, and vacuum the rug afterwards.
4 | Toilet cleaner
The toilet is one of the dirtiest parts of any home. To battle with your unit’s nasty and grimy toilet, mix a cup of vinegar with 1/4 cup of baking soda. Pour it into the bowl’s basin, leave for a few minutes, and scrub with a brush.
5 | Countertop cleaner
While vinegar or lemon can do cleaning wonders at home, never use them on marble or granite surfaces in your kitchen or unit! Acidic cleaners will eat into the stone, damaging them over time. To clean kitchen countertops at your unit, mix a drop or two of dishwashing liquid with warm water. Just make sure to rinse it completely after application to avoid soap residues!
