Expert Home Tips - 7 All Natural Cleaning Solutions

Stephanie from Expert Home Tips is a big fan of natural solutions. She’s sharing 7 of her favorite, all-natural cleaning solutions so you can start being more environmentally friendly in your home today.

You may be putting nature first when it comes to your beauty routine, but what about your home?

The harmful chemicals in shop-bought cleaning products are not only damaging to our skin, but the environment too.

In order to have a clean cleaning conscience, natural, homemade products are the best way to go. Not only do they contain no nasties, but they are also cheap and surprisingly effective!

Here are seven of my favorite natural cleaning solutions you can start using today:

1. Use Coconut oil to polish wooden furniture


No doubt you’ve heard all about coconut oil’s versatile beauty uses, but its benefits don’t end there.

Rub coconut oil onto a cleaning cloth and use it as you would furniture polish to shine wooden surfaces. It will add a gleam to oak tables, beech chairs and pine wardrobes.

Best of all, it’s 100% natural!

2. Lemon is a great limescale remover


Limescale can be so stubborn – it’s no surprise we think strong cleaning products are the best solution.

These may work, but they’re very harmful to your skin and the environment. A natural, and surprisingly effective solution that works just as well, is lemon.

Rub half a lemon over limescaled areas and leave for an hour. The acidity will work its magic and you’ll be left with gleaming surfaces when you wipe over with a cloth.

3. Shine stainless steel surfaces using olive oil19433825-328288747624902-1719737759-n.jpg

Dull stainless steel? An all-natural cleaning products will soon bring it back to life.

100% natural and environmentally friendly olive oil is the secret to gleaming surfaces. Clean surfaces down first, then add a small amount of olive oil to a dry, soft cloth. Use in circular motions to buff surfaces.

They’ll be so shiny, they’ll reflect your smiling face right back at you!

4. White vinegar will wash away toilet bowl stains

Dirty toilet bowls often have us grabbing for the strongest cleaner in sight. There’s really no need for harsh chemicals though, especially if you have a bottle of natural, white vinegar in your cupboard.

Pour two cups of this all-natural cleaning product into your toilet bowl and leave for 30 minutes before scrubbing and flushing. It will leave everything looking and smelling fresh. Plus, it won’t harm the environment.

5. Get your wood looking wonderful with walnuts


Solid wood tables soon get damaged from big family dinners. Scratches from plates, cutlery and board games can soon be buffed out using a surprising ingredient – walnuts!

The natural oil in nuts help to nourish scratched surfaces, renewing their colouring and making them much less noticeable.

When it comes to cleaning wood, natural is best!

6. Clean a stained oven door with bicarbonate of soda

We love bicarbonate of soda here at Expert Home Tips. Not only is it a cheap and natural product, but it’s effective at cleaning so many things. One of its most impressive capabilities is removing stains and splashes from oven doors.

It’s a job most of us dread, but with bicarb it’s much easier. Here’s how to use bicarbonate of soda as a natural cleaning product:

  1. Mix 3 parts bicarbonate of soda to 1 part warm water to form a paste
  2. Warm the oven then switch off
  3. Wipe the glass with a damp cloth
  4. Spread the paste on both sides of the oven door
  5. Leave for 2-3 hours until the paste turns brown
  6. Wipe both sides with a damp sponge cloth
  7. Use a plastic car scraper to remove any excess
  8. Bananas are a great natural cleaner for your leather

ave you heard about this fruitful cleaning use for your leftover banana skins? The inside of the skin is great for polishing dull leather.

Wipe it over clean leather shoes, sofas and handbags to get them looking as good as new once more.

A cheap, all-natural leather cleaner that you already have at home!

7. Use table salt to remove tea stains

We’ve all heard about the health benefits of herbal teas. Whether you’re a classic, green tea drinker or opt for something more exotic, after a few cups your mug will become stained.

Removing these marks naturally is easier than you may have expected. Rub the stained area with standard table salt, and the stains will disappear in no time.

With such easy ways to get amazing results using natural cleaning products, there’s no excuse to turn to nasty chemicals again.
