Conventional household cleaning products are effective but at what cost? Have you ever wondered why they all contain labels with a long lists of warnings and issues that may be caused by their misuse? Many traditional cleaners are petroleum based which is still debated as safe among many.

Your house can be cleaned with non-toxic products. Natural cleaning products are readily available and most are petroleum free. They are also non-toxic and biodegradable. You can also make many all-purpose cleaners at home using products you likely already have laying around. The following is a list of 4 natural cleaning products that you can use to clean nearly any surface in your home.

1. Baking Soda

It can be used in so many ways. Sprinkle on carpet to absorb odors and then vacuum up. It can be used as a non-abrasive cleaner on many surfaces including: counters, floors, ovens, sinks and inside refrigerators and microwaves. It also polishes flatware.

2. Washing Soda

It is more powerful than baking soda and great for tougher jobs. Use washing soda to get tough stains out of laundry. It is caustic so gloves should be worn when using. It can get those old and tough grease stains and residue from nearly any surface. Just avoid aluminum, fiberglass and waxed floors.

3. White Vinegar and Lemon Juice

These are both acids and can work wonders on removing dirt around the home. Lemon juice mixed equally with olive oil makes a great furniture polish. Vinegar is powerful and can clean and deodorize floors, bathrooms and most other household surfaces.
