Tired of detergents and toxic and unsustainable house cleaning products? Try these do-it-yourself alternative products for your household cleaning
Let’s face it, finding products for the home that respect the environment, non-toxic and bio but above all effective, is a really difficult task. We at Team Deanna will provide you with ideas to create your do-it-yourself household cleaning products.
I have personally tested several eco-friendly detergents, both those available in supermarkets and those in bulk and I must admit that a good 90% has disappointed my expectations.
The clothes were not cleaned thoroughly, they remained stained and the white ones in the washing machine turned gray. In short, a real disaster, so much so that those who are not familiar with the organic sector but have good intentions to start the green lifestyle, get discouraged and abandon good intentions.
Obviously the effectiveness of a product can vary from home to home, from family to family, as the appliances are different.
For example, a washing machine differs in quality and type (it can be loaded from the porthole or from above), the composition of the water is different (hard or soft), the temperature of the washing cycle varies (hot or cold), the type of stains varies (greasy or other), the nature of the various fabrics (natural or synthetic fibers), the color (dark or light).
In this article I want to offer you alternatives to create at home, in a completely natural and effective way, the products that have made you suffer so much.
• 100 gr of soda crystals (soda bicarbonate)
• 100 gr of grated soap (possibly blue in color to replace the optical agents found in commercial detergents)
• 3 liters of hot water
In a tub, mix the soda crystals with the soap and water. Use an immersion blender to homogenise. Let stand one night before use. For best results, add some vinegar to the fabric softener tray.
• 800 gr of soda crystals (soda carbonate)
• 200 gr of greedy critic
• 300 gr of sea salt
In an airtight container, mix the soda crystals with citric acid and sea salt. For best results, add vinegar to the brilliant bowl.
• 380 ml of grated solid Masiglia soap
• 4.5 liters of hot tap water
In a large pot or bucket, place the Marseille soap and hot water, stir and let stand overnight. Mix with an immersion blender and transfer to a 5 liter tank with which you will place the dispenser on the sink.
POWDER FOR RUBBING
Sprinkle water on the surface to be cleaned, then sprinkle it with baking soda (for example using a spice dispenser). Rub the stain with a rag.
STARCH FOR IRONING
• 500 ml of water
• 1 tablespoon of corn starch
Mix the water with the cornstarch in a vaporizer. Shake well before use.
