As a home daycare provider, you want to ensure that your daycare is clean and safe for the children in your care. However, you may not want to use harsh chemicals to clean your daycare. Luckily, several natural cleaners are just as effective as traditional cleaners but without harsh chemicals. Below are a few of the best natural cleaners for home daycares.
Vinegar is a great all-purpose cleaner. You can use basic vinegar to clean countertops, floors, windows, and more. Plus, vinegar is also a great disinfectant. To make a vinegar cleaner, simply mix 1 part vinegar with 1 part water in a spray bottle.
For more challenging cleaning jobs, mix 1 part vinegar with 1 part baking soda to make a scrubbing paste. You can use this paste on baths, sinks, tile floors, and more. Just be sure to rinse well after cleaning with this mixture, as it can be abrasive.
Lemon is another excellent natural cleaner. Lemon has antibacterial properties, which makes it great for disinfecting surfaces. To make a lemon cleaner, simply mix the juice of 1 lemon with 1 cup of water. Add 1/2 cup of baking soda to the mixture for more demanding jobs.
