The 15 Greatest Cleaning Substitutes To Use In A Pinch
Distilled white vinegar contains 5% acetic acid, which breaks down gunk and grime. Create a spray using a 1:1 ratio of vinegar to water for your countertops and cookware.
Hydrogen Peroxide
This versatile and nontoxic product’s chemical composition is an effective tool for breaking down mold or mildew in the shower without damaging your lungs.
Use a spray bottle to apply it directly to the problem areas, then let it sit for about 10 minutes before scrubbing the tiles clean for a shower that will look as good as new.
Lemon Juice
For streak-free windows, DIY a mix of 1 ½ cups of hot water and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice, spray it on the glass, and then wipe it clean with a microfiber cloth.
Cornstarch works wonders on stained carpets. Mix it with water or vinegar to make a thick paste, spread it over the stain, and let it sit for several hours until dry.
Vacuum up any excess cornstarch. It should have absorbed the stain and its odor, leaving your carpet clean, but you may have to repeat the steps a few times for stubborn stains.
Gin Or Vodka
Soak your diamond or gemstone jewelry in a glass with a little bit of gin or vodka for at least four hours to let the ethanol break down any grime on the stones.
