Keep It Natural - And Keep It Handy
With all of the cleaning products on the market, what does Chalut reach for when it comes to cleaning up? Baking soda. Not only is it budget-friendly, it won’t harm the environment and it’s safe for kids and pets (and you too). There are no skulls and crossbones on the packaging, and it’s a product you can actually eat.
The trick to using it is keeping it convenient. Pick up a couple of shakers from the dollar store and keep them handy. You can sprinkle baking soda on surfaces to wipe clean — or shake it on carpets, upholstery and even your pets to deodorize. Sprinkle some in your garbage can before you put in a new bag, or in your recycling bins too.
To make your own cleaning solution, fill a tub or bucket with two gallons of water and stir in the baking soda. Give it a good swish to help the soda dissolve, and then you can use the solution to wipe down surfaces (followed by a quick warm water rinse). It’s a good way to freshen up your outdoor furniture when you get it out of storage — and again, when you put it away for the fall.
