Simple and green cleaning tips

To keep your home clean you do not need lots of chemicals or different products for different spaces. Products from your pantry often work just fine. Here are some simple and green cleaning tips.


Clean the microwave using lemon 

Squeeze one half of a lemon into a microwave safe bowl. Place the squeezed lemon into the bowl and cover with water. Place the bowl inside the microwave and run at high power for one minute. Then wipe off with a damp microfiber cloth.

Clean the inside of the oven

Mix soft soap with water in a spray bottle and spray the inside of the oven. Turn it up to 100 degrees for 20 minutes, then turn it off and let cool. Simply wipe off all the old dirt with a moist sponge. Have you not got any soft soap at home - place a plate of vinegar in the oven and turn it up to 50 degrees. Leave for a half up to one hour and then wipe clean.

Lemon makes the tile shiny

Mix the juice from a lemon with equal parts water and vinegar. This gives you a universal blend for tile or the chandelier.

Remove bad smell with coffee

Pour coffee on a plate and place in the refrigerator. This will help you get rid off bad smell.

Clean the dishcloth

Easily extend the life length of your dishcloth. Boil the dishcloth in water with a little bit of washing-up liquid. Do this once a week to keep bacteria away.

Clean the sink 

Mix equal parts water and vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray over sink and leave it for a while. Use a micro fiber cloth or household paper to wipe clean. Fresh spots can easily be removed if you rub them with squeezed slices of lemon.
