Cleaning your house regularly is essential for maintaining household hygiene and keeping the household members healthy. For most people, the quickest and easiest way to clean is to use store-bought chemical cleaners.

However, their usage has many side effects which everyone should be aware of. Repeated and prolonged exposure to certain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in commercial cleaners, detergents and laundry products can cause various health issues.

You can suffer from allergies, frequent headaches, chronic respiratory conditions and many more problems. Fortunately, alternatives to chemical cleaners are available for performing regular and deep cleaning tasks.

For tenants at the end of their tenancies, it is best to consider green bond cleaning as the process requires the usage of excessive cleaning products and increases exposure to chemicals substantially.

You can hire professional end of lease cleaners in Sydney who use natural and organic cleaners and eco-friendly equipment. Alternately, you can use the following chemical-free recipes for DIY cleaning, whether it is for getting your rental back in full or regular sanitation of your house.

1. Cleaning Paste

While making DIY cleaners, your goal should be to make ones that can sanitise multiple surfaces like this three-ingredient paste. Things you will need are baking soda, an antibacterial essential oil of choice, and an organic liquid soap like Castile soap.

Mix these ingredients in a container (as per requirement) to make a runny paste. Wipe the surface you want to clean to remove physical contaminants then apply the paste. Let it dwell for 15 minutes before scrubbing and rinse with water or wipe with a wet microfiber cloth.

2. Multipurpose Cleaning Solution

White vinegar is a natural and organic product that dissolves grime, grease, and oily stops, stains, and messes. Professional end of lease cleaners in Sydney often use a natural ingredient like it for sanitising and cleaning. Make a multipurpose cleaning solution using white vinegar, water, anti-microbial essential oil of choice, and an organic detergent.

Mix white vinegar and water in equal parts, add 10-15 drops of the oil, and add 1/4th part detergent. Shake the solution until it is homogenous then use it to clean almost any household surface or object.

Note: Please don’t clean natural stone surfaces like marble, granite, sandstone or any other with vinegar solutions because it can cause irreversible damage.

3. Soap Nut Detergent

Clean naturally by making a detergent from soap nuts. You will need a small gunny bag and 12-20 soap nuts. To make the cleaner, put the nuts in the bag and submerge it in 1 litre of water in a pan. Boil the nuts until the water reduces to half, and a soapy liquid is left.

Strain this solution in a glass jar and close the lid after it cools. You can store this detergent for up to a month and use it to clean dishes, clothes, floors, your hair, and multiple other things.

4. Garbage Disposal Cleaning Bombs

Make ready to use cleaning bombs for your disposal which you can store and use whenever the garbage disposal gets dirty and smells. The things you will need are baking soda, dishwashing liquid, lemon essential oil, and water.

Mix the ingredients to make loose balls that retain their shape. Every few days, you can use a bomb or two along with boiling water to sanitise the garbage disposal.

5. Mirror and Glass Cleaner

Cleaning shower glasses and mirrors are essential to maintain their longevity and appearance. They can get dirty quickly, and you can clean them economically by making a cleaner with baking soda, water, and white vinegar.

In a spray bottle, mix 1-litre water, 150 ml vinegar, and two teaspoons of baking soda. Mix everything thoroughly and use this cleaner along with microfiber cloths. Professional end of lease cleaners in Sydney who perform green cleaning, use organic and non-toxic products to get good results.Thus, you can use these natural ingredients to get the desired outcome.

6. Versatile Floor Cleaner

Make a versatile cleaner to sanitise floors made with hardwood, tiles, cement, linoleum, and other hard surfaces. Mix white vinegar and warm water in a bucket, and you can sanitise the floors like a pro. You can add a few drops of anti-microbial essential oils such as lemon, eucalyptus, tea tree or any other to make the cleaner more potent.

Many professional end of lease cleaners in Sydney add essential oils to cleaning solutions for increasing the solution’s efficacy and have surfaces smell pleasant for hours after cleaning.

Note: If you are using this cleaner for sanitising marble, granite, or any other natural stone surface, then use baking soda instead of vinegar as it can erode the surface.
