Every one of us that have ever tried a real, thorough house cleaning, or simply following a quick and easy everyday cleaning routine and even those of us that have hire a professional service, even in the form of one-off cleaning, most probably know that some products are good and some, no matter how well they are advertised, just do not work the way promised and adverted. Of course, this is a normal thing, every housewife has her favourite products and ingredients. Because please do remember – cleaning is not only about the skills and techniques of the human, cleaning is also very dependent on the cleaning products and how well they do their job. In this line of thoughts, wouldn't it be nice, if we know exactly which are the best products and ingredients and use them only?! So this is the main topic of today’s article and we are about to share with you the superstars of the cleaning ingredients, so keep on reading!

Although with the time going by, cleaning products become more and more “sophisticated”, modern, innovative and, let’s be honest, expensive too, we personally believe that the basics are time-proven as highly efficient and work in all situations. In addition, basic and natural products are also a healthy and safe option, considering the number of harsh chemicals and hazardous toxins some of the products and cleaning solutions on the market contain.

So let’s have a look at the list of the superstars, you are invited to a special party today!


Out of all the basic and natural ingredients you can use on an everyday basis for cleaning, vinegar is most probably the most beloved, highly preferred and efficient one. Vinegar is practically good at cleaning anything and loosen all sorts of dirt. White vinegar will clean and deodorise anything you can think of, using it you can clean to perfection tea kettles, coffee machines, lime scale, soap scum, glass surfaces, mirrors and windows and… well, the list goes on and on!

Baking soda

If white vinegar is the singer in the band, then baking soda would be the guitarist because baking soda is as talented in cleaning everything and has as many fans as the magical vinegar! Anything that needs to be scrubbed – baking soda is the mildest, yet the most effective abrasive product out there! It is powerful enough to easily remove tough stains, grime and grease, but won’t leave scratches and other imperfections. You can use baking soda for cleaning toilet bowls, sinks, cutting boards, countertops and thousand-and-one more things. Baking soda also neutralises the nasty and heavy smells, so you can use it as a part of carpet cleaning too.


Salt is another natural abrasive that will scrub away messes and dirt. Plus, salt is available from fine to coarse, so you can choose the actual abrasive power that is the best for your needs.

Rubbing alcohol

Rubbing alcohol is a great disinfectant and since it evaporates really quickly, it is good for things that you don’t want to get wet – electronics, stainless steel appliances and windows.

Hydrogen Peroxide
