Cleaning Tips

Domestica is committed to providing earth-friendly, less-toxic solutions for all of your household cleaning needs. Below are tips for using our products as well as other formulas you can make yourself!

 
  • Ovens
  • Drains
  • Windows
  • Carpets
  • Fiberglass Stain Remover
  • Vinyl Floors
  • Wood Floors
  • Removing Black Heel Marks
  • Bleach
  • Metal Polish

Ovens

Use baking soda to sprinkle and cover the bottom of your oven. Spray the baking soda with water until very damp, and keep moist by spraying every few hours.

Leave overnight. In the morning, remove the baking soda and grime with a spatula. Rinse the oven well. Washing soda can be substituted for half the baking soda for really tough jobs but requires more rinsing and is caustic (wear gloves).

Note: Washing soda, made by Arm & Hammer, is found in the laundry detergent area of some grocery stores.

Drains

Pour one cup baking soda or 1/2 cup washing soda down the drain followed by three cups boiling water.

Windows

Many commercial window cleaners leave wax buildup. The first time you clean windows before using our recommended cleaner, you should wash them with a solution of 1/2 teaspoons vegetable-oil based soap (such as Dr. Bronner’s), 1/4 cup white distilled vinegar and two cups warm water in a labeled squirt bottle. Shake to blend, then spray on windows and wipe clean using a cotton diaper.*

For every day window cleaning, as well as mirrors and chrome fixtures, all you need is club soda in a spray bottle. The sodium citrate in club soda softens the water and provides superior, streak-free cleaning. This is what we using in our professional cleaning services.

Fiberglass Stain Remover

Squirt Domestica’s Tub & Tile Scrub onto the area and spread with a sponge. Let site two hours or overnight and rinse.

Vinyl Floors

Damp mop using one cup vinegar in two gallons warm water.

Wood Floors

For unvarnished floors, damp mop using Domestica’s All-Purpose Cleaner. We recommend White Pine for a fresh, clean scent.
For varnished floors, damp mop using one part vinegar to 10 parts water.*

Removing Black Heel Marks

Rub a small portion of Domestica’s Tub & Tile Scrub on the scuff mark using a white-backed scrubbee sponge and rinse well.

If the floor finish is removed, you may be able to restore it using 1/2 cup cornstarch and enough water to make a paste. Rub this mixture into the spot, let dry, then buff to a polish.*

Bleach

For laundry, try: 1/2 cup 3 percent hydrogen peroxide or lemon juice added during the rinse cycle, or 1/2 cup washing soda added to warm- or hot-water wash cycles. Note: Washing soda, made by Arm & Hammer, is found in the laundry detergent area of some grocery stores.

Metal Polish

Use natural acids such as vinegar and lemon juice to clean aluminum, bronze, brass and copper.
Combine three teaspoons salt, one tablespoon flour and enough white distilled vinegar to make a paste. Scoop paste onto a clean sponge and polish bronze, brass or copper. Rinse with hot water and buff dry with a soft cloth.
Rub white toothpaste into silver, and then polish with a soft, clean cloth.
Apple cider vinegar may be used to clean chrome. Polish chrome using club soda.
