Eco-friendly Kitchen Cleaning Products for Your Trinidad Rental Property

Trinidad Woman Cleaning the Kitchen with Organic ProductsWe would always prefer a clean kitchen. But nowadays, it is also crucial to understand that not all of the cleaning products we use in our Trinidad homes are safe for our environment. The positive aspect is that there are more eco-friendly cleaning products obtainable now than in the past to make our kitchens sparkle. In essence, combining a few simple ingredients most people already have in their cupboards, you can produce safe, effective, natural cleaning products that cost a fraction of store-bought brands that would yield the same result.

It is safer to use eco-friendly cleaning products in the kitchen. Harsh chemicals can be very harmful to your skin, eyes, nose, throat, and respiratory system. Plus, they can become a serious threat to any pets or sensitive members of the household. Aside from the negative effects on your health, most of the store-bought cleaning products contain chemicals that can harm the environment as well. Toxic chemicals could seep away from our kitchen drains into rivers, lakes, and groundwater, killing vegetation, polluting the soil, and poisoning fish and animals.

Eco-friendly products, on the contrary, use simple, non-toxic ingredients that are better for the environment. The worry is that not all brands that claim to be “natural” or “organic” are truly eco-friendly. There are few federal regulations that define which products can claim to be “natural.” Furthermore, there are no regulations that require cleaning product manufacturers to list the ingredients in their products on their packaging.

What this suggests is that it is up to the informed consumer to choose to either do some research to find the truly eco-friendly brands of cleaning products available, or make your own. Truth be told, some of the best eco-friendly cleaning products you can make or buy contain the same simple ingredients: white vinegar and baking soda. Different combinations of these two pantry staples can tackle almost any mess your kitchen can produce. With the aid of a few other, versatile cleaning supplies, you could conveniently clean your entire kitchen, floor to ceiling, without resorting to the harsh chemicals included in many store-bought brands.

Case in point, sealed wood and tile floors can be cleaned and disinfected with just a little white vinegar, some warm water, and a mop or rag. Often the smell of vinegar may not be all that pleasant, easily add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil to make your kitchen smell great. This also applies when cleaning one of the messiest parts of your kitchen: inside the oven. Getting that burned-on gunk off your oven’s interior can be a difficult task. With the help of a little baking soda, water, and some patience, you can use a baking soda paste to remove all that tough grime. To obtain a good clean, you should take time to allow the baking soda paste to sit overnight before scrubbing.

Additionally, glass and shiny surfaces can also be cleaned with eco-friendly ingredients. You can mix together some rubbing alcohol, white vinegar, corn starch, and water in a clean spray bottle. After that, simply spray and wipe clean with a lint-free or microfiber cloth. Always remember not to use paper towels to clean glass and shiny surfaces since they are not eco-friendly and also tend to leave streaks and bits of paper towel behind.

Supposing that making your own cleaning products is not possible, there are quite a few eco-friendly options now available. A few of the more popular brands are Mrs. Meyer’s products, Bon Ami cleansers, and Method brand products. These and similar brands guarantee that their products are both safe and effective, not to mention eco-friendly. Almost all of these brands use 100% postconsumer recycled plastics in their packaging.

Once you choose to buy or make kitchen cleaning products, it is most probable that once you do, you will never go back to harsh chemicals again. Not only will you keep yourself and your home safe, but you will also be doing your part for the environment, too.
