Cleaning the Kitchen with Homemade Cleaners
If you looked at the cleaning supplies isle in any departmental store, you will probably start to believe that it is almost impossible to clean the kitchen or other rooms in the house if you do not have most of the cleaners that are being sold.
However, the fact of the matter is that cleaning the kitchen or any other room in the house can be effectively achieved with the help of homemade cleaners that you can make on your own. Another good point about cleaning the kitchen and other rooms of the house with homemade cleaners is that homemade cleaners are often much less toxic than commercial cleaners.
When you use commercial cleaners while cleaning the kitchen, you might have to encounter fumes or pungent odors that will be very discomforting. With homemade cleaners, one will not be presented with such problems. Below, you will find a few homemade cleaners that you can use while cleaning the kitchen.
Homemade cleaners that you can make for cleaning the kitchen
Cleaning the kitchen with a vinegar and water solution
To clean countertops, kitchen tiles and even the inside of microwave ovens, simply use vinegar and water in an equal combination, with the help of a spray bottle. What is really good about this cleaning solution is that it will reduce the odors in the kitchen in addition to cleaning the surfaces that it is used on.
Cleaning the kitchen counters with an ammonia and detergent solution
Another very good homemade cleaner that is particularly good for cleaning the countertops is a mixture of ammonia, water and detergent. Mix one tablespoon of ammonia with one tablespoon of detergent and add about 3 cups of water, in a spray bottle. Spray this finely on your kitchen countertops and simply wipe away with paper towels to reveal some very shiny and streak free countertops that will also be bacteria free.
Cleaning the kitchen with homemade antibacterial solutions
If you just ran out of your antibacterial spray, you can still continue with cleaning the kitchen after making your own antibacterial spray. For this, you will need two spray bottles. In the first spray bottle, simply fill up vinegar and spray down on all the surfaces that need to be cleaned with an antibacterial spray. Wipe the surfaces with some paper towels. Then, use another spray bottle to add about 2-4 drops of detergent that is mixed in with tap water. Spray the second solution on the countertops or surfaces that need cleaning and wipe them down again. Cleaning the kitchen with this homemade solution is just as effective as cleaning the kitchen with commercial, store bought antibacterial agents.
Cleaning the kitchen drains with an homemade solution
To clean out clogged kitchen drains, you will simply need to throw down some baking soda in to the drain pipe. To this, add white vinegar and wait for 10 minutes. The baking soda and white vinegar will react in such a way that the clog in the grain will begin to disintegrate. After about 10 minutes, finish this procedure of cleaning the kitchen drains by flushing down some piping hot water that will release the clog in the drain pipes.
