Shower Cleaning Using Natural Products
This video shows an easy method to clean a dirty shower using only baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Shower cleaning using natural products is both money saving and environmentally sound.
Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide are green products that are natural and totally biodegradable.
I have seen it suggested online in several places that you should use vinegar and baking soda as a cleaning agent. However, you should NEVER use the two together.
Why You Don’t Use Vinegar And Baking Soda Together
A trip down memory lane to high school chemistry class is in order here. Don’t worry, it’s not gonna be long or boring so just hang with me here.
Adding baking soda to vinegar causes the solution to bubble up. That bubbling is the release of CO2 from the baking soda. What you are left with is a weak salt solution of water and sodium acetate. This isn’t helpful for cleaning at all.
Why You Use Baking Soda And Hydrogen Peroxide Instead
In the video, we sprinkle baking soda in the shower first. Baking soda is a mild abrasive that won’t scratch surfaces but will help remove soap scum and stains.
We then use a spray bottle to spray hydrogen peroxide over the baking soda to wet it. Hydrogen peroxide also has a mild bleaching action that helps to clean stains.
When the two are mixed together you get a mild abrasive and bleaching paste that has a one-two punch of cleaning actions.
This paste is useful for cleaning many things around the house in the kitchen and bath.
Why Shower Cleaning With Natural Products Makes Sense
When we are working to live simpler and greener then cleaning using natural products makes sense. It allows you to save money while protecting the environment by using totally biodegradable products.
Shower cleaning using natural products you already have and use in your home makes sense. You just pull them from the cupboard and use them as needed.
You also have the added benefit of not using harsh chemicals that can have a long term impact on the health of you and your family.
