Many household cleaning products are filled with toxins. White Lotus understands the importance of using eco-friendly household cleaning products. Let’s look at the benefits of using baking soda to clean your home.
According to an article at quickanddirtytips.com, “Cleaning with Baking Soda”
“Tip #1: Use Baking Soda as a Kitchen Scrub
Does your kitchen need a good scrubbing? There’s no need to use harsh chemicals that can damage surfaces and make you sick. Just mix equal parts baking soda and dish soap. My favorite is the original blue Dawn dish soap. Mix thoroughly and use this as a soft scrub to clean your sink, stove top, stubborn residue on pans, bathtubs, tile grout, and just about anything else in your kitchen. As with any scrub, you’ll want to make sure to test an inconspicuous spot first to make sure it doesn’t damage your surfaces.
Tip #2: Use Baking Soda to Clean Your Oven
Pairing baking soda with its good friend, vinegar, takes cleaning to a whole new level! (Even Everyday Einstein says so. Check out his episode called Vinegar + Baking Soda = The Ultimate Cleanser?)
To clean your oven, first scrape out any loose icky burnt stuff and then sprinkle a generous amount of baking soda over all the other gooey, burned spots. Next, put some plain white vinegar in a spray bottle and spritz it over the baking soda. Now, watch for the cool science project that will happen in your oven. Let this bubble for a while; maybe 30 minutes or so. Then take a tough scrubby sponge or wired scrubber and start working away at the stubborn spots. Once all the stuck-on stuff is loosened, rinse with a cloth and warm water. You’ll probably want to wipe and rinse thoroughly a few times. Now, isn’t that better than using that smelly, chemical oven cleaner?
Tip #3: Use Baking Soda to Clean Your Stove Top
The same cleaning technique you used to clean the inside of the oven also works great for cleaning the top of the stove. Use this method when you’ve had a bad spillover or there are some messy rings on the burners. The soft scrub mentioned earlier will do the trick on regular stove top messes, but when you’ve got a big job, baking soda and vinegar will tackle it much better. Sprinkle baking soda generously over the top of the stove and then spritz with vinegar. Let this sit for at least 15-30 minutes before scrubbing. Be sure to use a scrubbing sponge that’s recommended for stove top cleaning; especially if yours is glass. Don’t use a wired scrubber for this surface. “To read the entire article click here.
