So, I got to thinking and did some research. I found 8 house cleaning methods that do not involve chemicals and that is what I am going to discuss with you below.

Who said you can use vinegar only in salads?! Do you have mold somewhere in your house? Perhaps in your bathroom? Spray some vinegar on it and it should kill it. As a note, be careful with black mold as it is harmful.


Unscented Kitty Litter

Do you have a problem with moisture? Moisture caused milder. I like to keep a bowl of unscented kitty litter. The litter soaks up the moisture in the room. When it gets moist itself, makes sure you change it out.


Baking Soda

Did you know that you can clean with baking soda? To get the smell out of that cutting board, just clean it down with some baking soda and watch how good it works. And when you're done cleaning, you could use the same baking soda to make some delicious pancakes!


Soap and Water

One of my favorite things to use involves using just plainold soap and water. It works when you are cleaning the kitchen counter, just make sure you rinse it afterwards. I figure if you use it ondishes, then why not use it on the kitchen counter? It sure does beat using bleach!

Did you know that houseplants can be used in your home in order to fight indoor air pollution? They not only clean the air, but they also provide more oxygen. Besides cleaning the air and giving oxygen, plants add green to the inside of your home. I love them, because it brings a tough of nature inside with me and looks great!


Olive Oil and Vinegar

Do you know what these two do? Mix them together and you can polish your furniture! I use olive oil for a lot of things, including my hair. It's also great to soothe chapped lips!



Do you have some jewelry that you would like to shine? Believe it or not, toothpaste can be used to clean your jewelry. I heard this tip a long time ago. Have any of you tried this?



Lemons Photo Credit: Martjusha

One of my favorite things to clean with is lemons! They are great for removing stains on myfavorite pair of pants and other clothes! If your dishwasher starts to smell, then put a squeeze of lemon juice in with the soap. They can also be used to clean sinks, counters and anything else you need cleaned.

There you have 8 household things that you can clean with. As you see, there is no need to have all of those chemicals in your home. So,let’s go greenand start using my list! Is there anything you would like to add to my list?

Great article! Nice pictures ))) I always use vinegar while clean. You may clean floors, carpets and so on with that. It even can remove odors if you'll add there some lemon and put on stove.

Use baking soda with water for carpet cleaning! Thanks!

Lemons and vinegar for universal countertop sanitizer.

Use newspaper for mirrors or glass cleaning.
