CLEANING products can come at a costly price and that is why many are trying to find alternative ways to clean their homes without having to spend a fortune.

Here we tell you about household items which you can also use as cleaning products.

Bicarbonate of soda is often used in baking, which helps bread and cakes to rise.

It can help you with your household chores too.

The chemical compound is especially good at tackling grease.

Sprinkling a bit of the sodium bicarbonate onto pots and pans while you wash up can ease your workload.

Lemon juice is a great way to get rid of stubborn stains.

All you have to do is sprinkle the area with a little bit of salt, then squeeze some lemon juice onto a sponge.

Use the sponge to scrub the area for a couple of minutes.

Then rinse the area with clean water and the stain should be gone.

Using an everyday washing up sponge on furniture and fabric can remove pesky dog hairs and fluff.

Simply dampen the sponge a little, then rub over the fabric in a circular motion.

As you rub the sponge over the furniture, you should notice the hairs start to get picked up by the scourer.

Many of us are accustomed to the benefits of vinegar - especially when it comes to cleaning.

But there is another nifty trick you can try.

As well as being a great way to lift stains and tough marks, vinegar is a safe and natural way to remove bacteria and pesticides from fruit and veg.

Make up a solution of three parts water and one part vinegar before rinsing with clean water, and you won't get the sour taste.

While a lot of people have shifted to liquid soap, there are still some of us who opt for the traditional bar.

And as well as being good for washing your hands, a bar of soap can be used to sort out a stiff zip.

All you have to do is hold the fabric taut and run the bar over the teeth of the zip.

This will help lubricate the zip and ease the task of getting dressed.

Whether you've got a stiff jar lid you need removing or you're looking to remove pet hairs, rubber gloves may be the solution.

For opening jars, they add extra grip and can help you pop the lid off.

For pet hairs, just rub the gloves over fabric and the static energy will help lift them.

You then dip the gloves in water and the hairs will float to the surface.

They tend to work but because of the chemicals mixed in them, they tend to create a toxic air which can pollute the area that you are cleaning.

Natural products tend to be better not only because they are cost effective but also because they will not pollute and release chemicals around you like store-bought ones do.
