Eco-friendly Kitchen Cleaning Products for Your Bangor Rental Property

Bangor Woman Cleaning the Kitchen with Organic Products

There aren’t many pleasures in life that compare to a spotless, shining kitchen. However, not every cleaning product we use in our Bangor houses is safe for the environment. The good news is that there are more environmentally friendly cleaning products accessible than ever before. In reality, you can produce safe, practical, natural cleaning products for a fraction of the cost of store-bought goods that work just as well or better with a few basic products that you probably have in your kitchen.

Why Use Eco-Friendly Products?

There are significant benefits to utilizing sustainable cleaning products in the kitchen. Your respiratory system, throat, nose, eyes, and skin can all be seriously harmed by harsh chemicals. They also represent a serious hazard to sensitive family members or pets. Many store-bought detergents include chemicals that are harmful to the environment in addition to their harmful effects on people’s health. Harmful substances may get into rivers, groundwater, and lakes via our kitchen drains, polluting the soil, poisoning fish and animals, and killing vegetation.

Eco-friendly cleaning products, on the flip side, use plain, non-toxic components that are healthier for the environment. Although, not all brands that claim to be “natural” or “organic” are environmentally beneficial. Few federal laws specify which goods can make the “natural” claim. In addition, there are no guidelines that require makers of cleaning products to list the chemicals on the product’s package. This implies that it is up to the knowledgeable consumer to either investigate the truly eco-friendly brands of household cleaners that are currently available or manufacture their own.

Simple Ingredients = Safer Cleaning

White vinegar and baking soda are two of the most straightforward components included in the finest green cleaning products you can manufacture or buy. These two kitchen essentials can handle practically any messes your kitchen can create when combined in various ways. You can clean the whole kitchen, from floor to ceiling, without using the dangerous chemicals found in many store-bought brands if you use a few other common cleaning equipment. Here are some suggestions:

  • Floors: Tile floors and sealed wood can be disinfected and cleaned using a mop or rag, with some white vinegar, and warm water. Though vinegar may not have a delightful smell, you can quickly improve the odor of your kitchen by adding a drop or two of your favorite essential oil.
  • Ovens: Cleaning the inside of your oven when it’s been burned on can be complicated. Nevertheless, you can use a baking soda paste to get rid of all that stubborn grit if you have a little time, water, and baking soda. Let the baking soda paste set overnight before cleaning for the best results.
  • Glass and shiny surfaces: To cleanse glass or other polished surfaces, combine cornstarch, white vinegar, water, and rubbing alcohol in a sterile spray bottle. Next, spray and wipe with a microfiber or lint-free cloth. It is not a good idea to use paper towels to clean glass and other glossy surfaces, as they are not eco-friendly and tend to leave streaks and paper towel fragments behind.

Buy or DIY?

If manufacturing your own cleaning products doesn’t sound attractive, there are plenty of eco-friendly alternatives now. Products from Mrs. Meyer’s, Bon Ami cleansers, and Method brand products are some of the most well-known names. These and other brands promise that their goods are safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly. Some of these companies even employ packaging made entirely of post-consumer recycled plastics.

Whether you decide to buy or create your own kitchen cleaning supplies, once you see the advantages of eco-friendly cleansers, you might never go back to using nasty chemicals again. You’ll not only safeguard your property and yourself, but you’ll also be contributing to environmental preservation!
