Spring cleaning home remedies are definitely the ‘in’ thing right now! Try a few of these and give your home a spring boost!
Ahh, spring. This spring is already feeling a lot different to most years, and instead of us looking forward to days out in the park and pub garden afternoons… We are all stuck in the house. COVID-19 has been the biggest pandemic we’ve seen worldwide for a long time, and many of us are now isolating ourselves at home to stay safe while the virus passes.
During this time at home, you might want to get some of those niggling jobs done, and spring cleaning can be a great way to make the most of your time. But with us not being able to head out to the store as often it can be harder to clean if we run out of our regular products.
That’s why today we are going to take a look at products you can find in your pantry, and how you can make the whole house spotless with some natural spring cleaning home remedies.
Natural Carpet Cleaner
The carpet can be notoriously hard to clean, and services such as Snupit can be super helpful if you want your carpet cleaned professionally to remove stains. While we are at home though, it is a DIY job and we have the ideal solution to get rid of stains and odors from the carpet. Baking soda is a magical ingredient for cleaning and you can get rid of odors and fresh spills by sprinkling some baking soda on the carpet, leaving it for 30 minutes, then vacuuming it up.
Unclog those drains
The drains are a trap for all kinds of clogs, and it is all too easy to clog up the drain with food waste over time. To unclog the drains quickly and naturally you will need 3 things: baking soda, vinegar, and boiling water.
- Pour a kettle of boiling water down the drain
- Create a mix of 1 cup boiling water and 1 cup vinegar.
- Pour 1 cup baking soda into the drain, then pour the vinegar mixture on top. Allow it to fizz and react for 15 minutes.
- Pour another kettle full of boiling water down the drain.
The microwave is an appliance in the kitchen that can be hard to clean, and it is one that is often unpleasant to clean when bits of food are practically nailed onto its walls! However, you can clean the microwave easily by using a lemon. Cut a lemon in half and place it in the microwave. Run the microwave on full power for 2 minutes. The citric acid in the lemon will evaporate and help break down hard grime. Once done, wipe the inside of the microwave and benefit for a lovely smelling kitchen!
To clean your shower head without the fuss, simply create a mixture of vinegar and water in a zip bag. Tie the bag around your shower head and leave to soak overnight. In the morning give the shower head a wipe and run the shower for a few minutes!
