A huge chunk of human population share the same annoying condition which can prevent them from enjoying life to the fullest. It’s related to the biggest organ in the human body – the skin. Sensitive skin is something we have to deal with and manoeuvre around on a daily basis. From surprising rashes after trying a new moisturizing crème to random irritation and extreme dryness with cracking and even bleeding, abnormal sensory symptoms are hard to ignore. Store-bought cleaning products often contain various toxic and harmful chemicals, which can irritate and make even people with normal skin itchy, let alone those with the sensitive type.
In an attempt to alleviate this suffering, we’ll be sharing some ideas with you. When setting on the journey of DIY and skin-friendly cleaning products, three items should be always on your mind. They are baking soda, vinegar, and lemons. These are nature’s degreasers and disinfectants, and when combined with water they are capable of turning every stubborn stain and splatter into a distant memory.
Kitchen spray/Window cleaner
An easy recipe to start with is the one used for disinfecting your stove top, kitchen countertops and anywhere else. Its natural ingredients will keep the space where the magic happens squeaky clean and safe for your health. What you need for this concoction is one cup water, one cup white vinegar, 40 drops of essential oil of your choice and two tablespoons of rubbing alcohol. We need the rubbing alcohol to spread the oils in the water – we don’t want them floating on top and demanding a good shake before use. Tenancy Cleaning London suggests to mix the ingredients in a spray bottle, apply to a surface and wipe off with cloth. Enjoy bacteria free kitchen!
If you remove the essential oil of the equation, you can also use this spray to clean and polish windows, glass table tops and cupboard doors. Stainless steel can also benefit from it, but always make sure you read your appliance manual before using the spray on it.
Oven deep cleaning 
Starting with our three trusty friends, we spray the oven walls with a water-vinegar solution. A good ratio is 1/3 vinegar and 2/3 water. Powder baking soda and make sure you generously cover the more stubborn splatters. Then it’s time for the course salt sprinkling, right on top of the baking soda – this will fortify its degreasing powers. To seal it all spray again with the water-vinegar solution. Now it’s a waiting game, while you enjoy the low sizzling sound of the vinegar and the baking soda interacting. For best results, let it sit overnight. On the next day just scrub it carefully with a steel wool and you’ll see how easily all the buildup disappears. This proven recipe is one of the most effective eco ones and your skin will be more than thankful for ditching harsh chemicals.
Vinegar in the bathroom
№1 problem in the bathroom is mould and it’s something inevitable, when we are talking about a place where moisture can linger for longer amounts of time. Luckily, removing it is the easiest task when you put vinegar to good use. Spray it directly on the affected spots and let it do its magic. The acids will dissolve and completely get rid of the stubborn bacteria. As you know, it can linger and resurface later in time, but this won’t be the case after our vinegar total ambush.  And all this sans hard to pronounce ingredients.
