The coronavirus pandemic has made us realize the importance of personal hygiene. At the same time, it has also highlighted the importance of keeping your surroundings clean, and this is where home sanitization comes in.
Here are a few tips that will help you sanitize your home:
Before you start, you need to take stock of your cleaning supplies. If you plan to sanitize your home naturally, make sure you have natural cleaning agents such as vinegar, baking soda, borax, citrus fruits, cornstarch, essential oils, etc. You may also need equipment such as empty bottles and microfiber cloths.
Create a Sanitizer
Each ingredient is essential and has a purpose. For instance, vinegar is a disinfectant and cleans surfaces thoroughly. On the other hand, borax and baking soda are salts that absorb odor and remove tough stains. You can combine these and store them in containers. Remember to keep it fresh, as it can be effective only when it is fresh.
You need to combine half a cup of vinegar, a quarter of a cup of baking soda, and 4-8 cups of hot water to prepare a sanitizer. You can use this to clean mirrors and glass surfaces. For a more concentrated solution, consider mixing two tablespoons of borax, a quarter cup of vinegar, and two cups of hot water.
Heat half a cup of vinegar or 3% hydrogen peroxide solution. Alternatively, you can mix club soda and vinegar in a 1:1 ratio and add a few drops of essential oil. Pour it into a bottle, spray it over surfaces and let it sit for a few minutes before wiping the surfaces.
Clean Your Drains
Sprinkle a spoon of baking soda over the drain and pour vinegar over it. Let it sit for a few minutes and wipe it with warm water. Scrub your toilet with the borax/baking soda and vinegar solution for clean tiles. Use the same solution for cleaning the bathroom and shower area.
Combine lemon juice, water, and baking soda in a bowl and use it to get rid of food odor and residue in the microwave. For fixing your garbage disposal pipe, pour lemon juice (or peels) through it along with some ice.
