The carbonated water craze that emerged a few years ago is still going strong, despite frontrunner LaCroix’s recent fall from the throne. We’re all about drinking the bubbly, but we want to remind you that sparkling water can also be utilized for cleaning your home all-naturally. It’s a great alternative to harsh toxins, and it’s a safer cleaning solution for those with pets or kids around. Here are just a few of the most useful ways you can clean with seltzer.
Clean Stainless Steel
Seltzer water is a great way to thoroughly clean your stainless steel sink, cookware, or appliances. Use a clean cloth with some seltzer water to wipe away water stains and buildup. Seltzer can also be used to de-grease stubborn pots and pans.
Remove Pet Stains
Battling pet stains is a common complaint of pet-parents. Seltzer can help. Pour some sparkling water over the stain and let it fizz over. Then take a cloth and blot it repeatedly. Add more water if necessary.
If you need to remove rust from something, fizzy water usually does the trick. Simply submerge the rusty object in some seltzer. The carbonation will cause the rust to dissolve.
Clean Your Windows
Standard window cleaning agents typically contain strong chemicals. If you want to opt for all-natural, use seltzer to clean your windows instead of the storebought stuff. Add some seltzer to a spritzer and spray your windows down before wiping them off with a cloth.
Clean Your Face
Go ahead and add a bottle of bubbly water to your skincare stash because washing your face with carbonated water is a recommended option. The carbonation from the water works to remove dirt and oil from deep within your pores.
