House cleaning can be fun when the whole family gets involved. You can start your children with the most basic kid-friendly task of wiping down your glass dividers, balustrades and fences with a kid-safe DIY glass cleaner you can make at home. You can even mix this with your child helping you out.
Basic Natural Cleaner
Arm your child with microfiber cloths and spray bottles fitted for their size while you get the bigger sized ones. Mix 2 cups of filtered or distilled water with 2 tbsp of vinegar and a few drops of your preferred scented essential oil then transfer to your spray bottles. Give it a little shake when spraying. Make sure you supervise your child during their first try. The scent may be a bit strong but it will dissipate once the cleaner dries out.
Add half a cup of warm water to half a cup of vinegar in a bottle. Take two tablespoons of fresh lemon juice and add that along with 15 or more drops of tea tree oil and around the same amount of lemongrass-scented essential oil. Cover the bottle firmly and shake. Transfer to your spray bottles and use on your frameless glass balustrades and other glass dividers. By the way, tea tree oil is a natural disinfectant but is gentle on hands.
Sanitizing Glass Cleaner
This DIY glass cleaner is great for mirrors and windows. Take two cups distilled water, 1/2 cup of cider or white vinegar along with 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol then mix. Finally, add 2 drops of orange-scented essential oils. Avoid using this solution during hot days since it can leave streaks due to it drying too quickly.
The glass is so easy to clean; even your children can do it. It can also add class and value to your house and creates the illusion of space. So if you still haven’t maximised the use of glass panels in your house, do so. If not for all the benefits, your youngster will definitely enjoy cleaning them.
