Great cleaning agents

Most of us who have been in the kitchen have seen how painful it is to clean up after a meal. And this is even worse if you are not sure how to get that stubborn stain off your clothes or the burnt food off the pan. In today’s world, it becomes important to make use of natural products as much as possible to avoid damaging the planet. We can do our bit to save the planet, simply by using natural products readily available in the kitchen for cleaning. Not only are they sometime more effective as products available in the market, they are much less damaging. Here are some ideas:

1. Lemon: This is great to get the strong smells out of your hands, plastic containers, the fridge or microwave. It also acts as bleach. It works great on stains owing to its bleaching properties.

2. Vinegar: This is an ideal universal cleaning agent, deodorizer and disinfectant. However, it should be used diluted with water. Make sure you do a patch test to avoid damage. Vinegar solutions work best on counter tops, gadgets and floors. The smell of vinegar usually disappears as soon as it dries.

3. Baking Soda: Advertised as a deodorizer but more effective as a cleaner, baking soda can be used with vinegar to deodorize drains and clean stovetops and sinks.

4. Coffee beans are good for deodorizing. They are great at absorbing unwanted odor from your hands, the fridge, even chopping boards and utensils.

5. Stainless steel: This is a great deodorizer for strong smell in your hands. Just rub your hands on a steel spoon or utensil, and it will absorb it.

6.Toothpaste: If you use silver utensils in the kitchen, or have silver around the house, toothpaste is a great cleaning agent and brings back the sparkle in the silver.
