Green Cleaning: How to Keep Your Home Clean and Eco-Friendly

We all know how important it is for us to all do our part when it comes to being environmentally friendly, and increasingly, more of us are looking for eco-friendly cleaning products and solutions. Of course, Britex uses chemicals that aren’t harmful to the environment, but it’s those in-between moments of cleaning that can be improved.

Benefits of Green Cleaning

More than just being low impact on the environment, green cleaning has several other benefits for users. One of the key outcomes is the obvious reduced exposure to harmful chemicals. Many cleaning products use harsh materials to destroy germs, no doubt effectively so, but they harm your health.

Essential Green Cleaning Ingredients

Key green cleaning ingredients are pretty straightforward: baking soda, vinegar and lemon juice. Combining acids and bases (such as those found in these products) releases carbon dioxide gas that can help to agitate dirt and germs loose from fibres. Baking soda and vinegar as the traditional combination, with different volumes of each proving stronger or more targeted than others. Soaking as well as spot-cleaning can also make a big difference. Lemon juice acts in a similar way to vinegar but also provides antibacterial and antiseptic properties, meaning it can kill bacteria and remove mould.

Simple Tips To Maintain Green Cleaning Functionality

There are countless tips guides online that you can explore to really help you transition to green cleaning in your household, but the key tips we can share are to simply say no to toxic products, be conscious about where you dispose of your chemical cleaners, save water and clean regularly. Chemical cleaners with toxic components should be a no-no. Disposal of all cleaning materials is also critical, as disrupting natural water sources and local wildlife can be deadly. Reducing water usage where possible is a huge impact on green cleaning, and regular cleaning reduces the amount of chemicals required (and makes your life easier too).
