White Vinegar. Looking for an alternative to kill bacteria and germs? White vinegar is an antifungal you can use on your faucets and cabinet handles.

Baking Soda. Is your fridge smelling funky? Baking soda eliminates odors just by sticking a fresh box on your refrigerator shelf. It also works as a scrubbing powder that leaves your kitchen smelling clean!

Borax. A common name for sodium borate, which removes dirt,  eliminates odors and can be used as an antifungal as well as a disinfectant. Combat multiple problems with one product! Be wary of using it around your kids though, as it can be toxic if swallowed directly.

Club Soda. You’ve heard it been said before! Club soda is great at removing stains from clothing as long as you apply it quickly enough. As a stain remover and polisher, this is a go-to option for cleaning without harsh chemicals.

Corn Meal. How do you get rid of spills on the kitchen rug? Easy! Opt for corn meal – an amazing carpet cleaner. Just let it sit for about 30 minutes before vacuuming and you’re good to go!

Pure Essential Oils. All-natural, organic oils can add pleasant scents to your housekeeping tricks. Peppermint, eucalyptus, lavender, and tea tree oils not only smell great, but they also have antibacterial and antifungal properties.

If these products are not already in your pantry, visit your local health food store and start stacking up! Begin green cleaning your kitchen and you’ll no longer have to worry about eyes, nose, throat, and head irritations.
