Maintaining a clean and sparkling kitchen doesn't have to come at the cost of the environment. As a responsible cleaning company, Szamra Group Facility Services believe in sustainable practices that keep your kitchen spotless while minimizing your ecological footprint. Try these five eco-friendly cleaning tips for a gleaming kitchen that's kind to the planet.
Citrus peels (e.g., oranges, lemons)
Glass jar with lid
Method: Fill the glass jar with citrus peels and cover them with white vinegar. Seal the jar and let it sit for about two weeks. Strain the mixture into a spray bottle, diluting it with equal parts water. This natural degreaser effectively cuts through kitchen grime, leaving surfaces clean and refreshed.
2. All-Purpose Baking Soda Scrub:
Essential oils (optional, for fragrance)
Method: Mix baking soda with enough water to form a thick paste. Add a few drops of essential oil if desired. Apply the paste to surfaces like countertops, sinks, and stovetops. Let it sit for a few minutes, then scrub gently with a cloth or sponge. Baking soda's mild abrasive nature lifts stains and deodorizes, making your kitchen shine.
3. Vinegar Disinfectant Spray:
Distilled white vinegar
Essential oils (e.g., tea tree, lavender)
Method: In a spray bottle, mix equal parts vinegar and water. Add a few drops of essential oil for a pleasant scent and extra antimicrobial properties. This solution works as a natural disinfectant for cutting boards, countertops, and appliances. Spray, let sit for a few minutes, and wipe clean.
4. Reusable Microfiber Cloths:
Replace disposable paper towels with reusable microfiber cloths. These super-absorbent and durable cloths trap dust, dirt, and grime effectively without the need for harsh chemicals. After use, simply wash them and use them again, reducing waste and saving you money.
5. DIY Natural Air Freshener:
Method: Fill the saucepan with water and add citrus peels, cinnamon sticks, and cloves. Simmer on low heat, allowing the natural fragrance to waft through your kitchen. This delightful scent masks odor and leaves your kitchen smelling fresh without the use of artificial air fresheners.
