Maintaining clean floors is essential for a healthy and inviting living space. Many commercial floor cleaners contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to our health and the environment. A simple and effective alternative is to create your own natural floor cleaner using everyday household ingredients. This cleaner can be added to your LULU Quick Clean Wet/Dry Vacuum and Wash (a wet/dry vacuum and wash).
Ingredients and Benefits
To create a natural floor cleaner, you'll need a few essential ingredients that are safe, non-toxic, and readily available:
Baking Soda: This is a great cleaning agent because it can cause dirt and grease to dissolve easily in water, and is non-toxic.
Water: Mixing baking soda with water helps create a balanced solution that won't damage your floors.
Fresh Lemon: Adding a few drops of fresh lemon juice not only provides a fresh scent but also provides antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Recipe and Instructions
- Gather your ingredients: Combine 1 tsp of Baking Soda with water.
- Add a small amount of lemon juice to the mixture. Be cautious not to add too much, as lemons are acidic.
- Shake or stir the mixture well to ensure the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
- For regular floor cleaning, add the solution to the LULU clean water tank.
- Focus on high-traffic areas or any spots that require extra attention.
- Allow the floor to air dry or use a clean, followed by regular LULU Quick Clean Maintenance.
Tips and Precautions
Test the natural floor cleaner on a small area of your flooring to ensure compatibility.
Avoid using this solution on porous surfaces like marble or natural stone.
Remember to shake or stir the solution before each use to.
Store the floor cleaner in a cool, dark place to preserve its freshness and potency.
Avoid using too much baking soda/lemon, this can cause damage to the LULU Quick Clean.
Creating your own natural floor cleaner can save lots of money while creating a non-toxic solution. This cleaner can be used with a regular mop bucket or in the LULU Quick Clean.
