Clean Your Kitchen The Healthy Way

December 28, 2010

Cleaning products can contain many dangerous chemicals, which are usually not listed on the labels.

One of the easiest ways to protect your family from harm is to stop using cleaning products found in stores and start making your own.

Here are some quick and easy tips to keep your kitchen shiny and clean:

Countertops.  For a light "scrub", combine baking soda and liquid soap until you get a good consistency. Make only as much as you need, as it dries up quickly.

Ovens. Mix 1 cup baking soda and 1/4 cup of washing soda together.  Add water to make a paste and apply the paste to oven surfaces.  Let soak overnight. The next morning, lift off soda mixture and grime and rinse surfaces well.

Microwave Oven.  Make a paste of 3-4 tablespoons baking soda mixed with water. Scrub on with a sponge and rinse.

Cutting Boards.  Spray with vinegar first and then with 3% hydrogen peroxide. Keep liquids in separate spray bottles. It doesn’t matter which one you use first, but using both while cleaning is more effective.
