Guest post from Demi Giles: Eco friendly Cleaning

Hello! How are you? What’s new? For us, it has been busy and exhausting but happy. It’s my kids’ half term holidays and there has been a lot of outdoor activities which means dirty indoors and cleaning and scrubbing. I leave the rest to your imagination:-). In the midst of all these, I received a beautiful email with a guest post request from Demi Giles of Clean Start Cleaning Services, which is a UK based cleaning company that uses natural cleaning products. Demi is a writer of articles related to cleaning and organising. She is a busy mother and knows how to keep it clean with natural ingredients. So look around your kitchen and see the wonders. Here’s presenting an article from Demi Giles on eco friendly cleaning. 
Eco and allergy friendly cleaning for new mums
No matter whether you have to clean after your baby has made a mess either on the floor or in its bed, using poisonous detergents can not only have negative effect on the nature but can be very dangerous to your little one’s very delicate and sensitive skin. If you are a new mom who does not impress much by what the ingredients of the cleaning product are, once your baby starts swallowing the liquid or starts licking the counter top in your kitchen, you may begin to care more and think twice when shopping for a cleaning detergent.
 
Have you ever wondered what is really in the cleaning products? There are a lot of dangerous and toxic cleaners on the market which are manufactured to help people do the chores easier. Parents with small babies or people with sensitive skins are looking for alternative ways of cleaning, replacing the harsh chemicals with more natural home made cleaners. The best part is that these environmentally and allergy friendly cleaners can reach the same level of hygiene and cleanliness as the store bought products.
 
When it comes to baby-friendly and nature responsible cleaners, the ones I am going to share with you are the most powerful and effective.
Sodas

As you probably know there are a lot of various kinds of soda. What you may not know is that this product is absolutely safe for babies, pets and people vulnerable to allergic reactions.
Baking soda: mix equal parts of soda and vinegar. Pour this solution down a drain or greasy cookware and let it stay for a couple of minutes. These two ingredients will create a foaming reaction which will surely make your children enjoy observing it. Plus, it will perfectly clean and deodorise.
Bicarbonate soda: mix it with water. You can use this paste to clean silver jewellery, rust or coffee stains. You should definitely try it and see for yourself that it is really efficient. You can even brush your teeth with it!
Washing soda: it is also known as soda ash. You can use this natural ingredient to remove grease and stains, de-scale showers, taps, boilers, pots and many more.
Salt

We bet that you already have it in your kitchen. Did you know that you can make a great cleanser out of it? Many surfaces can be cleaned and disinfected with salt. Add some sprinkles of salt to lemon juices and use it to eliminate rust. The formed paste also helps remove burnt-on debris on cookware.
Keep steel or some jewellery shining by mixing salt, flour and vinegar and then rub the paste onto them. They will look like brand new. In order to keep towels or sponges bacteria-free, dip them into a salty water and then let them dry.
Vinegar

I am simply impressed by this ingredient! It is multi-purpose cleaner and helped me hundreds of times. It is the worst enemy of grease, believe me. Mix equal parts of white vinegar and warm water. Spray this solution on mirrors, windows or glass and then dry with a soft towel. You can also use it to clean wooden floors or to disinfect surfaces. As I already mentioned, vinegar is multifunctional- you can even remove mould from the shower head.
 
Vinegar is safe for your home, but most importantly it is safe for your children but yet it is powerful enough to remove scale, mould and bad odours.
 
Keeping your home clean and hygienic does not have to involve the usage of harsh chemicals and toxic detergents. Environmentally and allergy friendly components such as soda, salt, vinegar can also be very effective.
 
Thank you Demi for writing to me and sharing this wonderful article with the readers. 
 
Much love
