We assume they are safe. But in fact, many popular household cleaners are dangerously toxic. This article will guide you safely away from this danger…

According to the EWG study, 53 percent of cleaning products under review contained lung-harming ingredients. In addition, well-known carcinogens like formaldehyde and chloroform were found in several cleaners.

Here are several useful tips to help you clean your home safely and easily:

Washing machine

You should fill it with hot water, add a quarter cup of apple cider vinegar, and start a short cycle. After a few minutes, turn it off, and leave it for about an hour. Afterward, turn on the longest cycle. This will remove all smells, and your washing machine will shine like new!


Use sea salt and grapefruit to clean the bathtub easily. You should cut the fruit in half, dip the flat end in the salt, and then rub the tub. Afterward, just wash it with water. You can clean the kitchen cutting board in the same manner.


Use a mixture of apple cider vinegar, baking soda and lemon juice to clean the toilet and remove all bad odors.


To disinfect the shower head and make it shiny and clean, you should pour a cup of apple cider vinegar in a suitable plastic bag, and with a rubber band, secure it into the shower head. It should be completely submerged in the apple cider vinegar. Leave it to act for an hour, and then wash it off with water.


Mix some lemon juice with potassium bitartrate, apply the mixture on an old toothbrush, and clean the sink from rust. Next, just rinse with water.

Floor and tiles
