10 tricks for cleaning a house without chemicals

It is no secret that the vast majority of cleaning products, powders, and other household “utilities” do us more harm than good. And, despite this, abandoning household chemicals is completely impossible, but you can try to reduce its use to a minimum.

We've put together some cool ways to clean your home with just the tools you can find in any kitchen.

Tile in the bathroom

You will need

  • 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide
  • 1 tsp liquid soap
  • 1/2 cup soda

Application

Mix all the ingredients.

To clean small dirt, apply liquid to a damp sponge and wipe the tile. Then rinse the surface with water.

In case of severe contamination, apply liquid to the tiles and joints and leave for 10 minutes. During this time, the dirt will dissolve and it will be easier to remove. Repeat the procedure again and rinse the surface with water.

And so that after cleaning the bathroom remains clean longer, use the following method: mix water and vinegar in a proportion of 1/1 and spray liquid on the tile and joints 2 times a week.
