Non-toxic Home Cleaning 04.14.17

Spring is in the air! As the weather starts to get warmer, many people take advantage of this time of year to catch up on spring cleaning! There are hundreds of different cleaning solutions to choose from but the costs associated with these chemicals can be high! To cut down these costs, you could try making an inexpensive, easy-to-use, and natural alternative which can safely be used in place of commercial household products. Here are a few homemade substitutions that you can easily make using your purified Springs Mountain Water combined with common household products.

Note: These formulas and substitutions are offered to help minimize the use of toxic substances in your home, and reduce the environmental harm caused by the manufacture, use, and disposal of toxics. Results may vary and cannot be guaranteed to be 100% safe and effective. Before applying any cleaning formulations, test in small hidden areas if possible. Always use caution with any new product in your home.

All-Purpose Cleaner:

·      ½ cup vinegar

·      ¼ cup baking soda

·      ½ gallon Springs Mountain Water

Combine the vinegar, baking soda, and water. Mix together well. Can be used in a spray bottle or by pouring a small amount on a towel. Use for removal of water deposit stains on shower stall panels, bathroom chrome fixtures, windows, bathroom mirrors, etc.

Bathroom Mold Removal:

Mix one part hydrogen peroxide (3%) with two parts Springs Mountain Water in a spray bottle and spray on areas with mold. Wait at least one hour before rinsing or using shower.

Oven Cleaner:

·       ¾ cup baking soda

·       ¼ cup salt

·       ¼ cup  Springs Mountain Water

Moisten oven surfaces with sponge and water. Combine the baking soda, salt, and Springs Mountain Water to form a thick paste. Spread paste throughout oven interior (avoid bare metals and any openings). Let sit overnight. Remove with spatula and wipe clean. For tough spots, rub gently with fine steel wool.
