If you want to keep your new downtown San Diego loft or condo clean without being exposed to harsh chemicals, there are plenty of all-natural cleaning products you can concoct. These simple recipes are free from the bad stuff, and they are just as effective as store bought alternatives. So raid your kitchen and try out these great DIY ideas.
1. For the Bathroom
Everyone wants a clean bathroom, but maintaining it is easier said than done. For a bathroom cleaner potent enough to get rid of any dirt and stains, mix two parts baking soda with one part washing soda and one part salt. To use this mixture, wet the surfaces of your bathroom, spread the concoction evenly, and then scrub it into the surface with a brush.
2. For the Windows
If you’ve got smudged windows, don’t fret. To get rid of unsightly dirt on glass surfaces, combine half a cup of vinegar, a quarter cup of rubbing alcohol, two cups of water, and a few drops of essential oil. Pour the mixture into a spray bottle and then use a cloth to get rid of streaks.
3. For the Floors
If the hardwood floors in your apartment are looking lackluster, there’s a simple solution. Start with a gallon of warm water. Add a half a cup of white vinegar and a few drops of a citrus scented essential oil. This mixture should get rid of dirt and disinfect your floors without harming the wood.
4. For Everything Else
If you’re looking for the perfect all-purpose cleanser, mix white vinegar and citrus peels together in a mason jar. Let it sit for a few weeks for optimal effectiveness, then pour the liquid into a spray bottle and use it in the bathroom, the kitchen, and anywhere else as a general cleaner.
