Vinegar, the Natural Cleaner
November 1st marks “National Vinegar Day” for the US to pay homage to one of the oldest, traditional and one of the most natural cleaners known. As a type of acid made from fermenting fruits, Vinegar is non-toxic and effective in cleaning many of home and office spaces.
In a 50/50 water and white vinegar mixture and a spray bottle, it can be used to clean anything from cutting boards, counters, stoves, carpet stains, desks, windows, door handles, to removing and preventing mildew and harmful bacteria. Adding baking soda to surfaces and spraying will also help remove hard water stains, soap buildup and other difficult to remove substances. Also, letting faucets, sinks, tubs and toilets sit with this mixture of vinegar and baking soda will help remove additional layers of scum without much elbow grease.
While vinegar and its ally baking soda can create an effective clean – the smell can often times be off putting for some. If you are looking for a safe and effective clean for your office or business using non-toxic, biodegradable cleaners or green office cleaning services can help you get there without the stench. Make sure to look for products approved by Green Seal or the EPA for that safe, effective and reliable clean every time!
