As a working mom, I am always looking for tips to clean faster and more efficiently but I am also looking to save money on cleaning supplies. There seems to be a separate cleaning product for every single thing in my house that needs to be cleaned. It can get expensive. Here are a few natural ideas that are also less expensive to get your house clean: Lemons. Lemons are a great way to clean the house. The acid in lemon juice removes dirt and rust stains. It's especially effective when mixed with salt, which makes "an excellent scouring paste,". They also only cost about .50c per lemon. You can use them to clean your counter tops: Dip the cut side of a lemon half in baking soda to tackle counter tops; wipe with a wet sponge and dry. Don't use on delicate stone, like marble, or stainless steel (it may discolor). Cutting boards: To remove tough food stains from light wood and plastic cutting boards, slice a lemon in half, squeeze onto the soiled surface, rub, and let sit for 20 minutes before rinsing. Dishes: To increase the grease-cutting power of your dish washing detergent, add a teaspoon of lemon juice. Faucets: Combat lime scale by rubbing lemon juice onto the taps and letting it sit overnight. Wipe with a damp cloth. Garbage disposal: Cut a lemon in half, then run both pieces through the disposal with a cup of ice. The lemon cleans and smells great and the ice helps sharpen the blades. Grout: Spilled morning coffee on your tile counter top or back splash? Here's how to tackle grout stains: Add lemon juice to 1 or 2 teaspoons of cream of tartar (an acidic salt that acts as a natural bleaching agent) to make a paste. Apply with a toothbrush, then rinse. Hands: When you touch raw fish, the smell can linger on your fingers. Rub your hands with lemon juice, which will neutralize the odor. Laundry: To brighten whites, add 1/2 cup lemon juice to the rinse cycle for a normal-size load. Plastic food-storage containers: To bleach stains from tomato soup and other acidic foods on dishwasher-safe items, rub lemon juice on the spots, let dry in a sunny place, then wash as usual. There are so many uses for such a beautiful fruit! Cooking oils are also a helpful and natural way to clean. Vegetable and plant-based oils, such as olive and sunflower, dislodge dirt, diminish scratches and imperfections and hydrate wood that has aged or dried out from exposure to the sun. You can also use them to clean your cast-iron pans: Make a scrubbing paste with vegetable oil and a teaspoon of coarse salt to combat cooked-on debris, then rinse with hot water. Oil can also help to get paint off of your skin. For leather, shoes: Wipe away dirt with a damp sponge, then apply a drop of vegetable oil to a soft cloth and rub the surface to remove scuff marks. Buff the shoes with a chamois to a shine. Try these natural, safe, and inexpensive options next time you are looking to clean! ---------------------------------------------------- For another great cleaning tool, check out the Bissell Powersteamer Review: or for a great cup of coffee, check out the Keurig K65 Review:
