Since moving out on my own I have been on the search for cleaning products that work. I have to admit I'm a sucker for attractive, delicious smelling products. The one thing I've learned is that these "attractive, delicious smelling products" are not always so effective and can be pretty pricey (not to mention being potent to your health). So when I found this natural cleaning remedy on Pinterest I was excited but also a bit sceptical. I mean, could natural products possibly clean any better or even come close to cleaning as well as my store bought products? I quickly found out that the answer was YES!!!
For the natural cleaning solution I'm going to show today you'll need Borax (I picked mine up in the laundry isle at the grocery store), water, container of some sort, and something to scrub with (I use an old toothbrush). Once you have these items you're ready to go!
Step One: Simply dump the desired amount of Borax you think you'll need into container.
Step Two: Gradually add small amounts of water to Borax until you've formed a paste. I use the toothbrush to swirl the Borax around while I'm adding the water.
Step Three: Dip the scrubber into paste and apply where needed. VOILA!
I've used this paste to clean my tub, sinks, toilets, AND EVEN STAINS IN MY CARPET! (Note: To remove carpet stains follow same steps as above except let the Borax paste sit for 15 minutes or until desired. Then vacuum up.)
Since finding natural cleaning solutions, like this Borax paste, it has become my goal to replace as many toxic cleaning products as I can in my household. What about you? Do you have any natural cleaning solutions or tips?
