You may have used some of the cleaning products that are underneath your sink all your life. Perhaps even your mother used them, and that’s why you use them today. However, there’s a good chance you grandmother didn’t, she most likely used all natural products to clean and brighten the house. Although those conventional products seem super convenient, they are loaded with toxic chemicals you really don’t want around your house.

So instead of using toxins to clean, doesn’t it make more sense to use natural products to do the dirty work for you? Try these top 5 cleaners and you will find your home is a whole lot safer. You will be saving money, too!


1.  Baking Soda

One of the best cleaners of all! It naturally neutralizes odors and makes a good alternative to cleanser. Use it to keep your sink, stove, tub, and countertops sparkling clean.

Rub moistened baking soda on your stainless steel sink, and then add white vinegar, for a sparkling stainless steel sink without risk of scratching. Sprinkle it on your carpet and rugs and let sit for a few minutes to absorb odors before you vacuum.

Instead of those poisonous drain cleaners, pour a half cup of baking soda, then 1 cup of white vinegar down your drain and let sit for 15 minutes before flushing with hot water to remove grease, soap build up, and deodorize naturally.

Baking soda is a powerful workhorse as a cleaning agent. Always keep several boxes on hand.

    Be careful cleaning with vinegar! There are some great uses for it but vinegar is quite acidic and over time can easily etch or damage some surfaces. Make sure to only use on acidic resistant materials. If you aren’t sure, best not to use it and try another organic approach such as Freshana Organic Solutions 100% natural, organic, safe and effective cleaning products and air purifiers on those delicate surfaces!
