The kitchen can be one of the places in our homes where we can find the most bacteria and germs. Here are some awesome Homemade Kitchen Disinfectants that will give you a few ideas of some different ways you can bring non toxic cleaners into your cleaning regimen. Since the kitchen is the place where we prepare our food that we are going to ingest into our bodies, we want to make sure that it is free of any pesticides, bacteria and germs. When food is bought at the grocery store, you can be sure that it has been handled a lot before it is purchased and brought into your home to be eaten. You can use many of the same non toxic cleaners mentioned in the article from Naturally Bubbly to also clean your fruits and vegetables before you cook them and consume them. These home cleaners are not only non toxic, they are eco friendly cleaning supplies that won't harm the environment either. It's a win win for everyone.
One of the best non toxic cleaners would have to be natural baking soda, which you can find pretty much any where. It is able to be purchased at your local grocery store and is very affordable to buy a large box of it that you can keep around to use for many different things in your household. When it comes to eco friendly cleaning supplies, baking soda is at the top of the list for affordable and effective non toxic cleaners. Baking soda can also be used in baking recipes as a leavening ingredient. Baking soda is Sodium Bicarbonate and is a naturally occurring mineral that is found in nature. It is now made in abundance in factories using the natural chemical processes required to create it. Baking Soda is also known to be very alkaline, meaning that the acidity of it is very low and it can also help to reduce acidity in environments that have high pH levels. Natural baking soda is something that you should definitely have in your cupboard.
Another favourite when it comes to eco friendly cleaning supplies is all natural white vinegar. White vinegar is a natural disinfectant that can be used in a variety of ways to clean and deodorize surfaces and items in your kitchen, bathroom and beyond. The neutralizing powers that vinegar has makes it perfect for taking away pungent odours while cleaning away any harmful or unwanted bacteria in the process. Vinegar is like a more gentle form of bleach and it is not so toxic to the environment. A large bottle of white vinegar can be purchased at your local grocery store for under five dollars usually and can last for a very long time depending on how much you use it. White vinegar is also wonderful to use in recipes to make salad dressings and to pickle vegetables. A vinegar solution is also wonderful to bathe fruits and vegetables in before consuming them to take off any pesticides and germs.
We all want our kitchens to be bright and sparkly and super clean, so that the members of our families can stay as healthy as possible. Taking preventive measures like disinfecting your kitchen properly can ensure that you will be able to stay germ free and not run the risk of getting salmonella or e-coli that can be left behind when preparing uncooked meat on counter tops and cutting boards. Its so great to realize that you don't have to use chemicals to keep you and your family healthy, and you can keep the environment free from chemicals while you are at it.**
