Natural Cleaning For The Whole Family

Natural cleaning for home

Are you tired of aggressive, chemical cleansers that irritate your skin and have negative impact on nature? Are you looking for an alternative that is nature-friendly and effective at the same time? Then keep on reading. Natural cleaning is not just water and vinegar, though we do not need all those cleaning products, which are offered on store shelves. All we need are some basic ingredients, creativity and the joy of cleaning.

Alcohol disinfectants and cleaners with abrasives are perfect for disinfection and thorough cleaning of the home, bathroom and work surfaces.

ALCOHOL VINEGAR

Alcoholic or white vinegar mixed with distilled water is an excellent cleanser for removing dirt, greasy stains, unpleasant odors, limescale and mold. Distilled water is better choice for cleaning than tap water, as it is purer and doesn’t leave stains. Although vinegar has a characteristic odor, it dissapears quickly and you can still add a few drops of essential oil to the mixture of vinegar and water. Btw, we love adding essential oil of lemon, teatree, lavender or eucalyptus (so refreshing and also antibacterial). Alcoholic vinegar is made from dilute ethyl alcohol, to which food for bacteria (minerals, vitamins, acids) is added.

ABRASIVE NATURAL CLEANERS

The simplest abrasives include table salt, which can be mixed with baking soda and / or alcohol vinegar. Baking soda is one of the most well-known agents that thoroughly cleans drains, taps, refrigerator and tiles. Some people even wash the washing machine with it. It removes unpleasant odors and it is a good abrasive as well.

CASTILE SOAP

A versatile cleaner that can be a great base for a home cleaner. The product originates from Spanish Castile and is made from plant raw materials. The traditional base foiat of Castilian soap is olive oil. Mix 50 ml of Castilian soap with 500 ml of distilled water, add a little glycerin (to protect the skin during cleansing). Pour into a bottle and use it as an universal home cleaner. It doesn’t irritate and cleans very well. You can add a few drops of essential oils that refresh the room (e.g. lemon essential oil).

OLIVE OIL

Olive oil is used for stubborn stains, as it softens them and makes them easier to remove. Olive oil works great when removing labels on packaging (even the hardest ones). We both use it when we buy a new product that has a sticker which can be difficult to remove. To remove stickers e.g. on the refrigerator, you can also use acetone.

LEMON JUICE

Lemon juice is a very strong acid that has an antibacterial effect. You can clean the chopping board with half a lemon. If you just want to disinfect it, then cut the lemon in half and rub on a board and wipe dry. In case of stubborn stains, squeeze some lemon juice on the board and let it work for a few minutes.

Use lemon immediately and do not add it to long-term cleansers, as fresh citrus and other fruits are not durable!

ALCOHOLIC DISINFECTANT

Alcohol disinfects all types of work surfaces, acts antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral. For more pleasant scent, mix it with essential oils. You can use 70 % or diluted alcohol. It is available in pharmacies and grocery stores. Disinfection is also important at a time when various diseases are spreading.

ESSENTIAL OILS

Essential oils are natural antibacterial agents that provide hygiene in the home and a pleasant smell. Among the best essential oils are lavender, tea tree and lemon. Did you know that the perfect combination against mold is alcohol vinegar with tea tree essential oil? 😉

NARAVNA ČISTILA ZA VSAK DOM

Ali tudi tebe motijo agresivni, kemični čistilci, ki dražijo kožo? Iščeš alternativo, ki je prijazna naravi in hkrati učinkovita? Potem beri naprej. Naravno čiščenje nista samo voda in kis, res pa je, da za čiščenje ne potrebujemo veliko izdelkov, ki nam jih ponujajo na trgovskih policah. Vse, kar potrebujemo je nekaj osnovnih sestavin, ustvarjalnost in veselje do čiščenja.

Za razkuževanje in temeljito čiščenje doma, kopalnice, delovnih površin lahko uporabimo tudi alkoholna razkužila in čistila s sestavinami z abrazivnim delovanjem.

ALKOHOLNI KIS IN SODA BIKARBONA

Alkoholni ali beli kis je v mešanici z vodo odlično sredstvo za odstranjevanje umazanije, mastnih madežev, neprijetnih vonjav, vodnega kamna in plesni. Čeprav ima značilen vonj, se hitro razdiši – sicer pa mešanici kisa in vode lahko dodate nekaj kapljic eteričnega olja. Alkoholni kis je narejen iz razredčenega etilnega alkohola, kateremu dodajajo hrano za bakterije (minerali, vitamini, kisline).

ABRAZIVNA NARAVNA ČISTILA

Pod najbolj enostavna abrazivna sredstva spada kuhinjska sol, katero lahko mešamo skupaj z sodo bikarbono in/ali alkoholnim kisom. Soda bikarbona je ena izmed najbolj znanih sredstev, ki temeljito očistijo odtoke, pipe, hladilnik in ploščice. Nekateri z njo pomivajo tudi pralni stroj. Odstranjuje neprijetne vonjave in je dobro abrazivno sredstvo.

KASTILJSKO MILO

Vsestransko čistilo, ki je lahko odlična osnova za domače čistilo. Izdelek izvira iz španske Kastilje in je izdelan iz rastlinskih surovin. Tradicionalna osnovna maščoba kastiljskega mila je oljčno olje. 50 ml kastiljskega mila zmešajte s 500 ml destilirane vode, dodajte malo glicerina (za zaščito kože med čiščenjem). Prelijte v plastenko in ga uporabljajte za čiščenje doma kot univerzalno čistilo za dom. Nič ne draži in zelo dobro očisti. Lahko dodate nekaj kapljic eteričnih olj, ki osvežijo prostor (npr. eterično olje limone).

 OLJČNO OLJE

Oljčno olje uporabljamo za trdovratne madeže, saj jih zmehča in omogoča lažje odstranjevanje. Oljčno olje se odlično obnese pri odstranjevanju etiket na embalažah (tudi tistih najbolj trdovratnih). Midve ga uporabljava, ko kupiva nov izdelek, ki ima na sebi nalepko oz. etiketo in je le-to včasih težko odstraniti. Za odstranjevanje nalepk npr. na hladilniku, lahko uporabite tudi aceton.

 LIMONIN SOK

Limonin sok je zelo močna kislina, ki deluje antibakterijsko. Desko za rezanje lahko očistite s polovico limone. Če jo želite samo dezinficirati, potem limono prerežite na pol in podrgnite po deski ter obrišite do suhega. V primeru trdovratnejših madežev na desko stisnite nekaj limonovega soka in pustite delovati nekaj minut. 

Limono uporabiva takoj in je ne dodajava v čistila za daljšo uporabo, saj sveži citrusi in drugo sadje niso obstojni.

ALKOHOLNO RAZKUŽILO

Alkohol razkužuje vse vrste delovnih površin, deluje antibakterijsko, protiglivično, protivirusno. Za lepši vonj ga lahko mešamo z eteričnimi olji. Uporabite lahko 70 % ali 96 % alkohol, ki ga razredčite. Na voljo je v lekarnah in trgovinah z večjo ponudbo živil. Razkuževanje je pomembno tudi v tem času, ko razhajajo različne bolezni. Razkužujemo predmete, ki jih pogosto uporabljamo, kot so kljuke, telefon, ročaji od predalov, omar, itn.

ETERIČNA OLJA

Eterična olja so naravna antibakterijska sredstva, s katerimi poskrbimo za higieno v domu in prijeten vonj. Med najboljša eterična olja uvrščamo sivko, čajevec in limono. Si vedel, da je odlična kombinacija proti plesni je alkoholni kis z eteričnim oljem čajevca? 😉
