For this reason, many individuals choose to use organic or chemical free products. We’ve outlined 4 of the most common chemical free cleaning options.

#1 Lemon
Lemon and vinegar are two of the most effective organic cleaning products.

  • Lemon juice can be used to clean bathtubs with the aid of an old toothbrush. 
  • Rub lemon juice on clothing stains and wash after overnight to remove the stains.
  • Use half-cut lemon to remove water stains and clean glass shower doors.


2# Vinegar
White vinegar is a cleaning product and is great for many things:

  • Spray vinegar around the sink and tub to prevent bathroom germs.
  • Removes light stains from fabrics.
  • Scrub white vinegar, salt or baking soda to eliminate stains and remove with water.


Vinegar is acidic and so it is ideal for chemical free cleaning. It effectively removes stains from surfaces and inhibits mold from growing. You can clean cutting boards by spraying vinegar overnight and rinsing off it off in the morning. if you wish to use on marble surfaces, mix water equally and it works well as a cleaning products, deodorizer and disinfectant.

3# Baking Soda as a Deodorizer
