Eco-friendly Kitchen Cleaning Products for Your Trophy Club Rental Property

Trophy Club Family Cleaning the Stove with Organic ProductsEach of us wants a clean kitchen. But these days, it is significant to keep in mind that not all of the cleaning products we use in our Trophy Club homes are safe for our environment. The good thing is that there are a lot of stores selling eco-friendly cleaning products now, not like in the past, to make our kitchens sparkle. In fact, with a few simple ingredients most people already have in their cupboards, you can create safe, effective, natural cleaning products that cost a fraction of store-bought brands that work equally or better.

There are many acceptable aspects of using eco-friendly cleaning products in the kitchen. Harsh chemicals can be very harmful to your skin, eyes, nose, throat, and respiratory system. In addition, they pose a serious threat to any pets or sensitive members of the household. Aside from the negative effects on your health, some store-bought cleaning products contain chemicals that can harm the environment as well. Toxic chemicals can easily travel from one place to another like from our kitchen drains into rivers, lakes, and groundwater, killing vegetation, polluting the soil, and poisoning fish and animals.

Eco-friendly products, instead, opt for simple, non-toxic ingredients that are better for the environment. The problem 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.” What is more, there are no regulations that require cleaning product manufacturers to list the ingredients in their products on their packaging.

What this means is that it is up to the informed consumer to choose between doing some research to find the truly eco-friendly brands of cleaning products available or make your own. In reality, some of the best eco-friendly cleaning products you can make or buy contain the same simple ingredients: white vinegar and baking soda. Used together it is quite effective. These two pantry staples can tackle almost any mess your kitchen can produce. With several other common, versatile cleaning supplies, you can clean your entire kitchen, floor to ceiling, without resorting to the harsh chemicals included in many store-bought brands.

For instance, sealed wood and tile floors can be cleaned and disinfected with just a little white vinegar, some warm water, and a mop or rag. While the smell of vinegar may not be all that pleasant, you can easily add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil to make your kitchen smell great. It is similar for 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. But with a little baking soda, water, and some patience, you can use a baking soda paste to remove all that tough grime. For the better result, you’ll have to allow the baking soda paste to sit overnight before scrubbing.

So also, glass and shiny surfaces can also be cleaned with eco-friendly ingredients. To do as such, you can mix together some rubbing alcohol, white vinegar, corn starch, and water in a clean spray bottle. Then simply spray and wipe clean with a lint-free or microfiber cloth. It is a smart thought, 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.

If making your own cleaning products is not your forte, then you must try other methods. There are quite a few eco-friendly options now available. Some of the more popular brands include 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. Several of these brands even use 100% postconsumer recycled plastics in their packaging.

It doesn’t have any difference when you decide to buy or make kitchen cleaning products, and it is not surprising that once you start using eco-friendly products, you will never go back to harsh chemicals again. You will not only protect yourself as well as your family, but you will be helping others by doing your part for the environment, too.
