Some of the best cleaning products are found in nature and are probably in most homes already
Bloomington, Ill. (PRWEB) October 26, 2009
Everyday, consumers are looking for ways to cut costs and help lessen their impact on the environment. Whether it's buying a hybrid car to reduce the use of gas or using all-natural products for household cleaning, there are many practical techniques to save money and make a difference.
"Some of the best cleaning products are found in nature and are probably in most homes already," said Leiah Miller, product manager for ARM & HAMMER® vacuum bags, filters and accessories. "By using cleaning ingredients, like natural ARM & HAMMER baking soda, consumers are able to save money and keep their homes clean."
Try the following tips for natural cleaning at an affordable price:
- Baking soda is in the bag, the vacuum bag: Children can make it harder to keep the house looking and smelling clean, but using baking soda can help. Parents can reduce unpleasant odors by sprinkling one cup into the bottom of a diaper pail. If your floors need to be refreshed, try the ARM & HAMMER vacuum accessory line which uses the natural odor eliminating power of baking soda to absorb and neutralize the source of most bad smells in the home while you vacuum. And the products themselves feature environmentally-sensible packaging of 80 percent recycled material.
- More than just lemonade: Looking for a cleaner that does more than one job? Try running your dishwasher with ¼ cup of lemon juice in the soap dispenser to sanitize and remove mineral deposits and odors. Lemon juice also shines brass and copper objects easily.
- Olive oil to the rescue: It's grilling season, but your grill is covered in last weekend's leftovers. Instead of using an expensive chemical cleaner, try this alternative. Simply scrape away the large pieces with a cloth, use a brush or cloth to scrub the surface with olive oil and then rinse away the excess with water.
"A smarter cleaning routine can truly make a difference when it comes to your wallet and to the world around you," said Miller. "The makers of ARM & HAMMER products help consumers save money everyday by offering a safe, natural way to keep their homes clean and odor free."
