Eco house, i.e. ecological cleaning

ecological home cleaning products

For several years, I no longer use traditional liquids, washing powders and products from the so-called 'Acute chemistry'. Green cleaning is a better and healthier option. Chemicals that we use for cleaning are not indifferent to our health. They can cause dizziness, migraines and even hormonal disorders. After reading these types of articles, I gradually switched to organic products, and finally eliminated harmful chemistry from our home.


I've written about the steam mop several times on the blog. I still use the steam mop and I wouldn't exchange it for anything else. Generally, I'm from this type of people who prefer to invest in something decent and enjoy it longer. I bought our steam mop thanks to the program 'Mrs Gadget' (okay, I also bought pots thanks to this program. Apropo pots, I will soon write a new post about them, because we had a very interesting thing related to them. More on that, however).

Steam mop is a brilliant invention. It kills 99% of germs, is ecological (we use only water for cleaning) and economical (again I will refer to the fact that we only use water for cleaning). Thanks to this device I have thrown away a regular mop and, above all, liquids for cleaning floors. With the help of a mop I not only clean the tiles, I cleaned the parquet floor in the previous house (we have panels in our new apartment), but also the carpet, with the help of the carpet cleaning attachment. Thanks to this device I am not afraid of the health of our ear, because it spends most of the time on the floor. The mop is a safe device not only for animals, but also for children.


I used Domestos and similar products to clean the toilet. Never again. This type of chemistry is very harmful to health and I became convinced of it when I took a contract with Domestos, and then I could not breathe freely for 15 minutes. Then I said enough. I currently use Sodasan or Frosch fluid interchangeably. Initially, I thought that organic products are not as effective as traditional ones. However, I did not notice that my toilet was dirty?


I usually use products from these two companies for cleaning. Both are very good, but Frosch is distinguished by its fragrances. Their cabin cleaner not only removes stone very well (it really is one of the best stone removal agents I've used before!), But it also smells great. The liquid I mentioned smells like grape juice. Anyway, most of their products smell crazy. However, it is not such an artificial fragrance, but as if you had fresh fruit in front of you. Only for washing dishes I use unscented bottle cleaning liquid recommended mainly for washing children's dishes. Why this one? Well, because in 100% is flushed. I have terrible schizy on this point and I can smell badly rinsed liquid even in a restaurant. Besides, what a pleasure to eat a dish with dishwashing liquid ?! Okay, okay maybe most of them don't feel it, but I do.


This is a myth. Okay, it may seem that organic products are more expensive, but they are also more efficient and above all they are not harmful to you and the rest of the household, including animals. In addition, you can save on organic products, because a lot of them you can do yourself.

I often made vinegar-based cabin cleaner, or I cook washing nuts and make hand soap or hair shampoo with them. A few nut shells are also enough to wash the dishes in the dishwasher (although I definitely prefer Frosch dishwasher tablets, because the dishes do not smell at all. After washing nuts they have a specific smell that I do not like).


Soon I will also test another ecological product - washing balls. I am very curious about their actions, because here also the washing nuts did not work. Apparently, you can add essential oils to washing, but finding oils that are not greasy is a feat, and I haven't found them yet. I will let you know how the washing balls have worked. Let me know in the comments if you have used them and whether you are satisfied with them.

Do you know how much you can clean up in 15 minutes?

When I first met with this cleaning method, I thought it was funny. Little can be done for 15 minutes. I confess without beating - I was wrong.

Do you know how much you can clean up in 15 minutes?

In 15 minutes you can really do a lot! Did you know that in 15 minutes I was able to unpack the dishwasher, wash the stove, countertops and sweep the floor ?! Yes! I did all this in 15 minutes.
The first time I used this method, I was very surprised. After setting the timer and starting cleaning, I finished the task (for which I thought I needed so much time - unpack the dishwasher, put the dishes in place and wipe the counter above the dishwasher) ahead of time. I have 5 minutes left to finish.
Tonight I set the countdown timer to 15 minutes every evening and embrace the kitchen to prepare a meal the next day in a clean place. During this time, I wash the oven, unpack dishes from the dishwasher, dirty dishes land in the dishwasher, and also wash the countertops and put out the trash if the bag is full.
During this time, Piotr embraces the bathroom or bedroom (depending on which room needs cleaning).
Thanks to this, we are always ready for the arrival of unexpected guests (although I will not say that I am a fan of unannounced visits).

If you still don't believe that this method really works then you must try it out.
