We’re all about drinking the bubbly. But did you know it can be used to clean your apartment? Sparkling water or seltzer is a natural alternative to cleaning solutions with harsh toxins, and it’s a safer option 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
You can use seltzer water to clean your stainless steel sink, cookware, or appliances. Dampen 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. 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 store-bought 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 removes dirt and oil from deep within your pores.
