A Cleaning Service in Brooklyn You Can Trust.

Most cleaning products are filled with harsh chemicals that can cause adverse health reaction and be dangerous for your children and pets. For example, do you know that if you use a spray cleaner once a week, you have a 50% higher chance of developing asthma? And we won’t even mention those glass cleaners that contain tons of chemicals.

Keeping your house clean is vital yet many people don’t realize that there are many natural methods that are as effective as chemicals. Cleaning services in NYC know lots of methods for a chemical-free cleaning. Below, we will discuss at some of the most effective uses of natural cleaners.

Natural All-Purpose Cleaner

Use citrus vinegar cleaner to make your house smell and look clean. You simply need to collect citrus peels in a jar, add white vinegar and put it in a dark place for several weeks. After that, you should remove the peels and add a bit of water to dilute the vinegar. Pour the mixture into the spray bottle and use it to clean bathrooms, glass, windows and countertops. Completely natural and harmless!

Clean the Cutting Board the Natural Way

Cutting boards can have lots of germs, especially when you use them to cut raw meat. Thankfully, a lemon and salt can quickly clean it.

All you need to do is to cut the lemon in half, sprinkle the board with salt and scour the surface with lemon. Let it sit for several minutes and scrape the liquid away. Rinse with a clean cloth and you’re done.

Clean Your Drain With Baking Soda

If you have baking soda and vinegar in your house, you can unclog the drain the natural way. Add ½ cup of baking soda, then toss in a cup of vinegar and a cup of hot water and wait for the bubbles. Let it sit for several minutes and run hot tap water down the drain.

If your drain is badly clogged, cleaning services in Brooklyn will deal with the problem with all-natural products.

Make Your Carpet Clean

Mix two cups of baking soda with 20 drops of your favorite essential oil to make a natural carpet freshener. The baking soda will make the carpet clean, while the oil will leave a very nice smell. For example, you can use Lavender oil for a floral scent, or orange oil for a citrusy smell. Sprinkle the mixture over your carpet and let it sit for several hours before vacuuming it.
