Makeup with baking soda and fabric softener to polish the floor and perfume the entire house

Cleaning  floors  is not as simple as it seems, especially when you choose to abandon “conventional” products in favor of more ecological and less harmful alternatives to your health. Not to mention the variety of surfaces, from  marble to parquet, from ceramics to tiles  .

Fortunately, there are natural ingredients that are “universal” and that allow us to prepare a detergent capable of  removing dirt in depth  , polishing the floor without leaving streaks and  eliminating black dirt between the joints  .

Below we propose the recipe for  homemade detergent  that, in addition to being effective on almost all types of surfaces (under which it should not be used) and removing dirt between the joints, is also ecological and is not harmful to health.


  • 100ml white vinegar
  • a capful of fabric softener
  • 3 tablespoons baking soda

Pour the vinegar, fabric softener, and baking soda into a bucket filled with warm water and mix well. The vinegar disinfects, the baking soda removes the most difficult dirt, and the fabric softener perfumes the entire house.

Use this solution to clean the floor as you normally do. It will not be necessary to rinse the soil or make more passes.

Be consistent in cleaning the floor to always have it clean and not let the dirt that is most difficult to remove accumulate on it.
