A clean house is a sign of a wasted life
Nobody likes to clean . . . well, I don't so I just assume nobody else likes the chore. Anyway, one of the worst parts of cleaning . . . besides the dirt, grime and grossness . . . are all the harsh chemicals in cleaning products. Admittedly, they are effective but they're not good for you and they're not good for Mother Earth.
A simple, extremely cheap and all-natural cleaning combo are a couple of items that you probably already have in you kitchen . . . lemons and table salt.
On their own or combined together they kick dirt's butt!
Salt all by itself is great for cleaning. It's a mild abrasive and kills germs. Salt sprinkled on spillovers and oven drips while they are still liquid absorbs the drips. Simply, wipe the mess away when it cools. Salt is also especially good at breaking up grease and oils.
Lemon juice is an acid. It not only cleans, but smell great, too. Clean surfaces that are susceptible to scratches by rubbing with lemons or lemon juice for gentle cleansing.
Lemon and salt together can be used for many general household cleaning jobs, such as cleaning sinks and tiles and glass. (not good for waxed or marble surfaces).
Sprinkle salt in your kitchen sink and use a lemon cut in half to scrub the surfaces clean. In the shower or tub just dip that lemon in the bowl of salt, rub on all the surfaces. The lemon juice, with the help of the abrasiveness of the salt literally eats the soap scum!
Give it a shot. You'll be impressed with how powerful these two completely natural cleaners are. Enjoy the extra jingles in your pocket.
