Guest post Joanna Wilkins
The beginning of the new year is the most appropriate time to start leading a healthy life. For some people, this means to observe carefully the food that they put in their body and for other to visit the gym twice per week.
No matter what kind of changes you implement in your life, if you continue cleaning your home with fabric cleaning products, that “are supposed to give excellent results”, you won’t be able to live in a safe environment, which is an essential part of leading a healthy life. Say no to the professional cleaning materials and start preparing your own detergents only from natural products. They are really efficient and smell much more pleasant that the ones that you can buy from the shop.
7 natural cleaning recipes for greener 2017
Here are a couple of recipes for natural cleaning detergents and what you can clean with them:
We will start with the kitchen, as it is one of the most frequently used rooms in every home. You can easily clean the kitchen counter-tops and surfaces by dipping half a lemon in baking soda. Rub the desired areas and after that wipe them with a wet cloth.
A thick paste made of 2 tablespoons of baking soda and 3 tablespoons of vinegar will help you to eliminate all dirt deposits and burnt areas from the oven. Put a small amount of the mixture on a sponge and rub with it the walls, the bottom and the door. After that clean also the exterior, by using a cloth soaked in vinegar. In the end, wipe the appliance with a wet clean towel. With vinegar you can clean efficiently the other kitchen appliances as well.

In order to make it clean and sanitised, make a mixture of the juice of one lemon and two tablespoons of baking soda. With this natural detergent you can clean everything in the bathroom including the limescale from the sink and the shower head.
