The Best Child-Safe Cleaning Products and Their Uses

The Best Child-Safe Cleaning Products and Their UsesWhether or not you’re a new parent, you might have noticed your home calling for extra cleaning with children around. Although your intuition is to thoroughly clean a mess when you see it using a stringent chemical cleaner to sterilize the area, you might want to take a step back.

Household cleaners can contain hazardous chemicals that can harm an infant’s eyes, skin, and respiratory system. Since a baby’s immune system takes a while to entirely develop, by using abrasive cleaners, you can increase the effects of allergies, irritation, and other health issues.

So Which Products Should You Use?

 Natural homemade cleaning products are the best for avoiding any of the above health risks and they’re namely safe to use around children. If you still decide to use other products, make sure that the ones you get are free of chemicals like ammonia, petroleum, and phosphate, and that they’re biodegradable.

Stay away from using antibacterial soap and use regular soap and water instead, to kill germs. Start with making your own cleaners:

  • Carpet cleaner. Pour a few tablespoons of natural soapin a gallon of water and add about one-fourth of a cup of vinegar. Then, scrub the area. You can add a dash of baking soda to help get rid of the most stubborn spots.
  • All-purpose cleaner. Create an 8:1 water-vinegar solution and add a few drops of natural soap. For a fresher scent, add a dash of your favorite natural oil. Use on counters and surfaces that are unaffected by vinegar.
  • Sink and toilet cleaner. Mix vinegar with lemon juice and spray some of your natural all-purpose cleaner to sanitize the toilet bowl and/or sink. Then, add some baking soda and let it sit for about five minutes before scrubbing with a brush.
  • Window cleaner. Get rid of the fingerprints with a 6:4 vinegar-water solution. Just pour the solution in a spray bottle and spray the glass. You can also replace the vinegar with lemon juice. Then, use a microfiber cloth to wipe down the glass. You can use this on mirrors, too.
  • Wall cleaner. Too many wall stains?Just spray the walls with the natural all-purpose cleaner (which you can use to clean children’s toys, too). Add about ¼ cup of baking soda to a cup of vinegar, and pour into a bucket of warm water. Use a soft microfiber cloth to thoroughly clean the walls, before repainting.
