Body Health Mind

In today’s world, we are surrounded by harmful cancer causing chemicals, from the foods we ingest to the air we breathe, even what we absorb through our skin. Our homes should be a sanctuary away from damaging exposure. Cleaning with safe, non-toxic cleaners is a positive step toward living healthier. Check out these 10 tips to help you clean naturally.1. Cleaning The Cutting Board

After chopping your vegetables and even meats like chicken you sanitize without using harsh chemicals. Cut a lemon in half exposing the flesh and spread salt over the board and scrub using the lemon half. Make sure you cover the entire board from top to bottom and sides as well. After you have thoroughly cleansed it, rinse well with warm water and dry.2. Remove Grime And Dirt From Furniture

The oils from our skin and hair build up on the fabric of the furniture. You can refresh the furniture by making a paste with baking soda and water. Just spread a layer on the soiled areas, let dry and vacuum. No need to scrub. The baking soda will absorb the oil and dirt.3 . Get Rid Of Water Rings

Eliminate those annoying water rings left behind from a sweaty drink by using a blow dryer on a medium heat setting to dry the surface then rub a dab of olive oil into the surface. You can remove any excess oil with a dry towel.4. Shiny Stainless Steel

Stainless steel appliances are nice looking, but keeping them shiny and free of streaks can be a pain. By mixing cream of tartar and water into a paste, you can buff out those unsightly marks leaving a shiny finish. Just apply the paste and wipe off with a dry rag.5. De-furring Furniture And Carpets

We love our pets, but the hair they shed……not so much. By taking a regular hair comb, rake the surface. The hair will ball up nicely to collect and discard. Another trick is to use a window squeegee the same way.6. Erase Mineral Build Up From The Shower Head

To loosen the deposits from the minerals, fill a plastic bag with vinegar, place the shower head in the bag and secure it with a rubber band. Let is soak for about 30 minutes, remove the bag and use an old toothbrush to wipe away the minerals.7. Clean The Microwave Effortlessly

Fill a bowl with water and add a couple drops of dish soap. Turn the microwave on high for 60 seconds. When it’s done, remove the bowl and wipe it clean with a damp sponge. No scrubbing needed.8. Candle Wax Drips

To get was out of carpets and rugs, heat an iron to medium heat, place a paper towel over the accident and run the iron back and forth over the area until all the wax has been absorbed into the paper towel.9. Eliminate A Smelly Sink

As food accumulates in the kitchen sink drain bad odors can occur. To eliminate the odor and freshen up your sink, cut a lemon, lime, or orange into quarters and place the pieces into the drain. Run warm water and turn the disposal on for 30 seconds or so. This gives off an nice citrus fresh scent.10. Streak Free Glass And Mirrors
