Natural cleaning products are substances used to clean, deodorize, and/or disinfect which have natural substances as their active ingredients. In some cases, natural cleaning products may be less damaging to the environment and safer for humans and pets than conventional cleaning products.
Effective natural cleaning products can be made from (a combination of) common household ingredients, such as:
- Lemon juice
- conventional and electrolysed Water
- Mineral oil
- Baking soda
- washing soda
- vegetable based soap
- plants with high saponin levels
The exclusive use of natural cleaning products allows to lower the needed inputs required for water purification. Especially in areas where small-scale, individual systems need to be used to purify the water. This allows for a substantial decrease in the cost and size of the installation. Also, in certain cases, it allows the system to be discarded completely, as regular water diversion may result to suffice instead. As an added advantage, nutrient recycling in certain greywater systems may be increased, allowing gains for domestic food production systems, for example permaculture systems, used at home.
