How To Make Healthy Cheap Homemade Cleaning Products and Why You Should Be Using Them For Weight Loss

natural cleaning materials

A healthy environment contributes immensely to our overall health. It is important for your personal health, your children’s health and our planet’s health to remove chemical based cleaning materials from your home.

Fortunately, you don’t have to give up a clean and fresh-smelling home when you use health/earth-friendly materials for cleaning, and it doesn’t have to be an expensive ordeal. In fact, you can clean your home with cheap natural ingredients you most certainly already have in your home.

Another benefit of using natural cleaning products you are also ensuring that you won’t be keeping excess fat deposits on, and when you do get rid of them through a weight loss program, the process won’t be traumatic to your overall health.

Why? You may be asking…

Well, another duty of fatty tissue is to act as a storage compartment for certain pollutants. By closing in on chemical pollutants, fatty tissue actually protects other organs and tissues from pollutant overload. That’s why is becomes very difficult to lose this fatty tissue.

However, during weight loss, these accumulated pollutants are released into the bloodstream inducing inflammation, which may lead to detrimental metabolic effects.

Now let’s look into these cheap natural cleaning products and how you can use them:

  • Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate which comes from Nahcolite a soft, colorless or white carbonate mineral crystal)
  • Water
  • Lemon juice
  • Vinegar
  • Borax (a nontoxic salt of boric acid, naturally occurring in sedimentary rock deposits produced by the repeated evaporation of lakes).
  • Coconut Oil/Extra Virgin Olive Oil

These are the most frequently found ingredients in health/earth-friendly household cleaners. I also recommend:

  • Dr. Bronner’s soaps. These soaps are all natural, fair trade and made with natural oils and plant extracts.

 

So, let’s see how we can use these basic materials to create some homemade cleaning materials:

Window Cleaner

If you like shiny windows, mirrors and glass surfaces, here is a really easy formula also using alcohol. Take a glass spray bottle. Add equal parts vinegar, water, and isopropyl alcohol. Use a reusable lint free soft cloth to clean surfaces. You can also recycle an old newspaper to bring more shine to your glass and mirrored surfaces.

Floor Cleaner

If you have laminate floors, use the same recipe as for windows, but add an equal part of Dr. Bronner’s Pure Castile soap and add more water. If you have wooden floors, you may add a few drops of olive oil to help condition the floors. If you dry your wooden floors after washing, the shine will show even more.

Furniture Polish

You can make a very useful and health/health/earth-friendly furniture polish with two simple ingredients. Mix 1 part extra virgin olive oil with 1/2 part lemon juice. You can clean the furniture first with 1 cup distilled water mixed with 3 tbs distilled white vinegar. Then sparingly polish the clean furniture to a beautiful sheen. Make sure you dry the furniture thoroughly when finished using a soft cloth.

Burnt Pans

If you have stainless steel pans with burnt food on them, try this simple health/earth-friendly cleaner: baking soda.

In fact, you can have baking soda available for quick use in your freezer in an old salt shaker. When you need it, just take it out of the freezer and shake it on the burnt pot. Add a dash of vinegar for extra tough burns.

Silver Cleaner

Baking soda is useful for cleaning silver as well. Make a paste of baking soda and water, in about equal amounts. Apply to the silver making small, circular motions, with a soft micro-fiber cloth (or use an extra soft baby toothbrush for silver with detailed designs). Once covered, rinse and dry silver.

Sink and Bathtub Cleaner

This simple formula can remove the thin film of dirt found in sinks and bathtubs. In a pan mix 1 cup of distilled white vinegar with 1 tbs cornstarch. Heat to a boil constantly stirring until it forms a gel-like substance. Using a funnel, pour mixture into a glass spray bottle. Add 2 tbs Dr. Bronner’s Pure Liquid Castile soap and shake well. Spray on the area, let sit for a few minutes, then wipe clean with a soft cloth. Rinse and dry.

Lime Deposits

It’s easy to get rid of lime deposits by just using plain, distilled white vinegar. Spray on the deposits and let it sit, then use a soft cloth to wipe dry. No need to rinse.

Stove Cleaner

For big surfaces of stainless steel, you can use distilled white vinegar on a soft cloth. For stainless steel sinks you can use a paste made from baking soda and water, but be sure to rinse very well and dry to ensure that you’ve removed all the cleaner after the job is done.

Liquid Laundry Soap

Place one bottle of Dr. Bronner’s Pure Liquid Castille soap into a big multi-purpose cleaning bucket. Add 4.5 gallons of hot water. Add 1 cup of Borax and 1 cup of baking soda. Mix and leave to stand overnight. Mix again and pour into separate smaller bottles using a funnel. Use 1/2 cup for each load.

These ideas are easy to use and you likely already have most of the ingredients at hand. Buying these ingredients in bulk will save a lot of money and your cleaning products will be naturally beneficial for you and the environment.
