In today’s world, when we are surrounded with easily accessible chemicals that affect our health, it’s sometimes a good idea to turn to the nature instead, and seek solutions to our problems there.
In the past, when there weren’t that many cleaning products out there, our great-grandparents used all natural ingredients in order to keep their homes clean.
One of the things they used is the bay leaf.
Besides its pleasant aroma, this plant is a game-changer when it comes to scrubbing and cleaning.
Using it for that purpose, it will act as a natural air freshener without all those synthetic fragrances found in commercial products.
At the same time, bay leaves possess both antibacterial and antimicrobial properties.
If you decide to add some bay leaves into the water you use to mop your floors, you won’t be only cleaning, but you will be disinfecting as well. What’s most, the scent of bay leaves repels mosquitoes, flies, and other insects.
When dealing with tile and wood, the natural oils in bay leaves will act as natural polish, giving the floors showroom luster. On top of that, bay leaves are way too cheaper than any cleaning products found at stores.
In case you want to try them, this is how to mop using bay leaves.
