    10 great housekeeping hacks for naturally cleaning your home

    A mattress


    You will need:

    • 8 fl oz (235 ml) 3% hydrogen peroxide
    • 3 tablespoons baking soda
    • A drop of liquid soap

    How to use it:

    Make the mixture right before you are going to clean a mattress as it’s more effective this way.

    Mix baking soda and peroxide in a spray bottle. When baking soda dissolves, drip liquid soap in there. Shake the bottle and spray а dirty spot.

    Leave it for 5-10 minutes. If you want it to dry faster, turn on a fan and point it to the spot.

    Clean off the remnants of baking soda with a vacuum cleaner.

    The oven


    You will need:

    • Ammonia

    How to use it:

    Put some ammonia into a small bowl and leave it in a turned off oven for a night. Give your kitchen a good airing in the morning and wash the oven; grease will peel off easily. There should be no odor left. The only downside to this method is the smell, so please don’t forget to work with gloves and with the windows open.

    The kettle


    You will need:

    • Vinegar

    How to use it:

    To get rid of kettle furring, fill the kettle up to half or three quarters level with equal parts of water and vinegar. Cork the kettle nose (for example, you can make a «cork» out of paper) and boil water for as long as you need for furring to come off. Then wash the kettle well.
