Easy & Natural Ways to Clean Your Floor

Cleaning the floors feels like something simple, but to be honest, it might be more challenging than you think.

Therefore, if this means that if happens, you will have to buy and lay a new floor. The best way to avoid this, of course, is to dismiss all chemical cleaners and use only natural cleaning products from now on. We tell you which ones they are and how to use them…

Clean Carpets with Vinegar & Baking Soda
If you are lucky enough to have carpet in your home, which means you always have warm and soft feet, it is also important to clean it regularly. Of course, I don’t have to explain to you that you do this with the vacuum cleaner. But what should you do if the carpet has stains because you spilled some wine or chocolate? Vinegar can help you get rid of these annoying stains. Mix a bit of this natural cleaning product with a few spoons of baking soda and pour it on the stain. Let it soak for an hour and then dab all the moisture up with a clean sponge or tea towel. You can repeat the process until the stain is gone. This works for all kinds of stains, but for some – like blood and red wine – you should work faster than for others. Does the carpet have a funny smell? Sprinkle some baking soda on the carpet, let it do its job for a few hours – or overnight – and vacuum the carpet the next day. I bet you don’t smell a thing!

Your own floor cleaner, made of vinegar, because this product will help you get rid of those ugly-looking stains on your beautiful floor. This is what you should do, mix a gallon of water with 1 cup of vinegar and mix this very well.
