Greener Cleaners – Three Product Swap Experiences


If you were to visit my home and curiously peered under my kitchen sink, you'd find an array of cleaning products. There's the stainless steel aerosol, the almond-scented wood floor oil, and Clorox wipes (which I must confess, I'm not ready to part with just yet). Alongside these, you'd also notice a few natural cleaning solutions. Over time, I've incorporated a few eco-friendly cleaners into my cleaning routine, and they're doing a fantastic job. But I've also learned not to feel guilty about not being entirely eco-conscious. I've struck a balance!

In this post, I'm going to introduce you to three products I've replaced with greener alternatives.

2-Easy Off Fume Free Oven Cleaner
This product claims to be "fume-free." They've masked the strong odor, so my body doesn't immediately react to the use of a product that needs serious ventilation. Luckily, I took the time to read the instructions! A few years later, I came across a video showing how simple it was to use a common household item instead, and I decided to give it a try. I wonder what my response would have been if they'd made it smell like fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies?

Natural Replacement – Baking Soda
Back in 1986, during the centenary celebration of the Statue of Liberty, baking soda was used to clean the iconic monument. As gentle as our fingernails, baking soda is a safe, straightforward, and economical alternative. It helped restore Lady Liberty, and it can do the same for your oven.

Just mix baking soda with water to create a paste, apply it onto the oven's surface, and let it sit for 30 minutes to 3 hours depending on the severity of the grime. Afterward, just wipe it off using paper towels or a damp hand towel.
