Simple Products Every Household Needs

When you think of household necessities, you probably think of your favorite snack or extra rolls of toilet paper stocked in the bathroom cabinet. While we definitely agree that those are a few must-haves, there are some other simple products that you should have around your home that will make cleaning and home maintenance all the more easy.

Baking Soda

There are few things baking soda can’t be used for around your home. Toss a little in your washing machine in order to freshen up your whites, create a paste to use to scrub down your bathroom grout lines, pour it down a drain or toilet to flush a clog, combine it with hydrogen peroxide to get stains off clothing and kitchen items — the uses are really endless. You can even just leave it in its box to keep bad odors out of your fridge.

Distilled White Vinegar

Like baking soda, distilled white vinegar can be used for a number of different cleaning and health purposes. You can add white vinegar to your washing machine or dishwasher to flush it of any built-up gunk or odors or mix it with some essential oil drops and water to use it as a homemade cleaner for windows, shower doors, and countertops.

Hydrogen Peroxide

While this product is typically thought of as something to use when you scrape a knee, hydrogen peroxide also can help with a number of household chores. This antiseptic can be used to whiten your clothes, without the use of bleach, clean everything from your toothbrush to your child’s toys, and even help get rid of mildew in a humidifier or essential oil diffuser.

One of the biggest benefits of using these mentioned products is that they don’t contain harsh chemicals and are much safer for your health and indoor air quality.
