Natural cleaning or green cleaning is a way to clean your home with fewer cleaning products and safer alternatives - producing less waste and reducing the need for harmful chemicals.

All the following ingredients can be bought inexpensively from your local supermarket:

  • Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking Soda) - cleans, deodorises, softens water and is a good scouring powder.

  • Pure Soap - is a general purpose cleaner that biodegrades completely.
  • Washing Soda - cuts grease and remove stains
