Eco-friendly Kitchen Cleaning Products for Your Round Rock Rental Property

Round Rock Family Cleaning the Stove with Organic ProductsEverybody absolutely desires a clean kitchen. But, in these times, it is imperative to know full well that not all of the cleaning products we use in our Round Rock homes are safe for our environment. The great news is that there are more and more eco-friendly cleaning products obtainable now than ever before to make our kitchens sparkle. In actual fact, with a few simple ingredients most people already have in their cupboards, you can, assuredly, make safe, effective, natural cleaning products that cost a fraction of store-bought brands that certainly work just as good or better.

There are several very good reasons to use eco-friendly cleaning products in the kitchen. Harsh chemicals can be very harmful to your skin, eyes, nose, throat, and respiratory system. More to the point, they produce a serious threat to any pets or sensitive members of the household. Other than the negative effects on your health, plenty of store-bought cleaning products contain chemicals that can harm the environment as well. Toxic chemicals could most certainly be finding their way from our kitchen drain into rivers, lakes, and groundwater, killing vegetation, polluting the soil, and poisoning fish and animals.

Eco-friendly products, by contrast, just use simple, non-toxic ingredients that are better for the environment. The real problem is that not all brands that claim to be “natural” or “organic” are truly eco-friendly. There are few federal regulations that define which products can claim to be “natural.” More than that, there are no regulations that require cleaning product manufacturers to list the ingredients in their products on their packaging.

This means that it hinges on the informed consumer to either do some research to find the truly eco-friendly brands of cleaning products available or make your own. As it turns out, some of the best eco-friendly cleaning products you can make or buy contain the same simple ingredients: white vinegar and baking soda. Usually used in varying combinations, these two pantry staples can tackle almost any mess your kitchen can produce. With some other common, versatile cleaning supplies, you surely can clean your entire kitchen, floor to ceiling, without resorting to the harsh chemicals included in many store-bought brands.

For instance, sealed wood and tile floors can be cleaned and disinfected with just a little white vinegar, some warm water, and a mop or rag. Although the smell of vinegar may not be all that pleasant, you could easily add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil to make your kitchen smell great. The same thing applies to clean one of the messiest parts of your kitchen: inside the oven. Getting that burned-on gunk off your oven’s interior can be a difficult task. Although with a little baking soda, water, and some patience, you can use a baking soda paste to remove all that tough grime. For optimal results, you would need to allow the baking soda paste to sit overnight before scrubbing.

In the same way, glass and shiny surfaces can also be cleaned with eco-friendly ingredients. To do so, you could just mix together some rubbing alcohol, white vinegar, corn starch, and water in a clean spray bottle. Then simply spray and wipe clean with a lint-free or microfiber cloth. It’s a great thought not to use paper towels to clean glass and shiny surfaces since they are not eco-friendly and also tend to leave streaks and bits of paper towel behind.

If making your own cleaning products still doesn’t feel enticing, there are quite a few eco-friendly options now available. Among the more popular brands include, to name a few, Mrs. Meyer’s products, Bon Ami cleansers, and Method brand products. These and similar brands guarantee that their products are both safe and effective, not to mention eco-friendly. Most of these brands even utilize 100% postconsumer recycled plastics in their packaging.

It’s not ever a big deal whether you desire to buy or make kitchen cleaning products, and in all probability once you are able to start, you may never go back to harsh chemicals again. Not only will you keep yourself and your home safe, but equally important, you will be doing your part for the environment, too.
