Natural cleaning or green cleaning is a way to clean your home with fewer cleaning products and safer alternatives - producing less waste and reducing the need for harmful chemicals.

All the following ingredients can be bought inexpensively from your local supermarket:

  • Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking Soda) - cleans, deodorises, softens water and is a good scouring powder.
  • White Vinegar - cuts crease and is a deodoriser and mild disinfectant.
  • Pure Soap - is a general purpose cleaner that biodegrades completely.
  • Lemon Juice - is a mild bleach, a deodorant and a cleaning agent.
  • Washing Soda - cuts grease and remove stains
  • Borax - is a naturally occurring mineral salt. It cleans, deodorises, bleaches and disinfects. Borax is also used to control pests such as ants and cockroaches.
