Sanitizing your Home
The transmission of these allergens as well as other harmful things like dirt, dust, viruses and fungi can be controlled by effectively cleaning and sanitizing surfaces that are in contact with food and also sanitizing other surfaces such as the walls, floors, drains and ceilings. Cleaning involves the removal of all the visible dirt from any surface, while sanitizing involves the use of a chemical product, after cleaning, to effectively reduce germs on these surfaces.
Using Natural Sanitizers
Most people resort to chemical means to sanitize their houses but these products are not the safest ways to achieve the goal of reducing germs from the surfaces. Even though they are readily available in stores, when you use chemical-laden household cleaning products and also disinfectants, you expose your children to the poisonous effects of these compounds.
Look out for Natural Products
Though many natural sanitizers may not have much aromatic fragrance like the chemical products which are loaded with a host of aromatic but toxic chemicals, natural products in fact, efficiently purify, disinfect and remove the stains, all without the use of any chemicals. While shopping for sanitizers, you can look out for natural products.
Most of the plants and herbs can be found in aromatic essential oil forms – cilantro, tea tree, neem, vanilla, and grapefruit. While shopping for sanitizers, look out for these natural antibacterial and antimicrobial agents, which are great for sanitizing floors and tiles. Don’t hesitate to mix different essential oils, like eucalyptus, lavender, rosemary and lemon, to get various aromatic blends.
Mix vinegar with hot water and use it on any type of floor – tiles, wood, linoleum or laminate, to clean it. In addition to leaving the floor shining, vinegar also does the work of a mild disinfectant and can cut grease and also remove mildew and stains on walls. Vinegar, baking soda and boiling water can be used to clean your drains. A mixture of white vinegar and water cleanses windows and glasses.
Lemon juice mixed with olive oil and hot water works two ways; the hot water and lemon juice do the work of cleaning the floor while the olive oil does the work of leaving your floor shining and spotlessly clean. It being one of the strongest natural acids, lemon can cleanse bacteria most effectively. This natural cleaning formula can be used mainly on wooden floors.
Borax in hot water is great for using in bathrooms which require good disinfecting. Borax is a strong disinfectant and is effective in any situation whether it be for cleaning, deodorizing, softening water, disinfecting, cleaning wallpaper, floors or walls. Borax with liquid castile soap is a natural toilet bowl cleaner.
Your home is your sanctuary and it has to be a safe place; but with the store-bought toxic chemical-based products being used to clean and sanitize your home front, it no longer remains a haven for you and your family. So, while shopping for sanitizers look out for natural products which are non-corrosive, non-hazardous and non-poisonous and can be used for sanitizing your home without any threat to your loved ones.
