What if you have run out of the dishwashing liquid? It does not matter. Your home has enough products to clean the dishes, windows and floors, and even carpets.
Replacing household chemicals
Mustard can be used to wash the dishes! It is better to buy mustard powder. Pour it onto a damp sponge, and greasy dishes are perfectly clean!
A universal detergent for cleaning the house is water + vinegar + a few drops of lavender oil.
To wash windows, dilute vinegar and water 1:5, apply on the glass, and wipe with a soft cloth or newspapers. Vinegar can be replaced with lemon juice.
To remove lime stains on the sink, tub, and the closet basin, pour some vinegar in, sprinkle with a little baking soda and leave. Then, clean with a brush.
Fabrics can be whitened as follows: 10 liters of water, 2 tbsp. hydrogen peroxide, and 1 tbsp. liquid ammonia.
Baking soda is a great oven cleaner. To remove grease, leave ¼ cup in the oven overnight; the next morning wipe the soda. An oven can be also cleaned with salt while it is still warm.
Use salt for cleaning sewer pipes. Fill the pipe with salt and rinse with boiling water.
Glass can be polished with ammonia and soap.
A mirror can be cleaned with a mixture of vinegar and water in equal proportions.
Cornstarch works surprisingly well for carpet cleaning. Disperse it, and then vacuum the carpet.
