If you are looking for great recipes for natural cleaning products then look no further. Here are some awesome Safe, Non-toxic Formulas, Techniques and Products for Cleaning in your Home. More people are becoming conscious of how harsh chemical cleaning products can be on our own health and on the environment as well. When you are using chemical cleaning products, you are introducing all of the chemicals within the solution into your home environment and into you and your family's bodies. The chemical cleaners we use can enter into our bodies by way of breathing them in, or by way of them getting into our pores through our skin, or also from getting into contact with the food we eat. If you are focusing on living a healthy lifestyle, you will want to eliminate all of the harsh chemical cleaning products in your home and replace them with natural cleaners that are safe and just as effective as the chemical ones. In fact, people have been using natural cleaners for ages before products with chemicals like bleach arrived on the scene. Vinegar and baking soda have always been all-stars when it comes to natural cleaners and they are still one of the number one go-to ingredients when making all natural household cleaners.

Baking soda is found naturally but it is also made in factories in the same way it is made in nature, but it makes it possible to make larger amounts to have available for the public. Arm and Hammer Baking Soda is probably the most well known brand of baking soda, but there are other brands that are just as great. The nice thing about baking soda is that you can also use it for baking breads and baked goods as well as for cleaning. You can also use it for personal hygiene and for beauty regiments. Baking soda can be used as a tooth paste and mouth wash, it can also be used as a great hair rinse and as an exfoliating skin cleanser and face mask that is really good for smoothing out the skin's complexion and even getting rid of pimples. Baking soda is known to be very alkalizing which means it helps to balance the pH of your system, so some people even drink a bit of baking soda in water each day to balance their pH levels and tone down their acidity in order to become more alkaline. Baking soda is also a great odour neutralizer so it works great to put on carpets or mattresses and then vacuum up later on when it has had a chance to absorb all of the smells.

Another well loved natural cleaner is vinegar. Vinegar is listed in many articles with house cleaning tips and tricks to naturally clean your home. Vinegar is usually made from the fermentation process of fruits and vegetables and can be bought as white distilled vinegar or apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar tends to have a more pungent odour at first, but the odour does go away over time. White vinegar, like baking soda helps to neutralize odours in your home and is involved in many recipes for natural cleaning products. It is also a great way to get rid of mildew and to cut through grease. Some of the recipes for natural cleaning products include using vinegar with equal parts water and some essential oils for added aromatherapy and cleaning action. Lemon is also known to be a great ingredient to use in natural cleaners and it leaves your home smelling so nice and fresh and clean after you are finished with it.
