Do you have a favorite memory of the 4th of July? For many of us, this iconic summer holiday brings to mind visions of spectacular firework displays or memories of running around with sparklers, lighting up the night with a celebratory spirit.
However treasured your Independence Day memories are, now is the perfect time to go out and make some new ones! Nothing says Independence Day more than a backyard barbecue or patio party with friends and family. Here at Sweeping Dimensions, we’ll keep you ready to go for those special summer parties, all season long.
4th of July is a time to celebrate our country with friends and family. And don’t forget, this festive day also falls around the midpoint of the summer season, making it a great time to refocus your attention on freshening up your space for the “dog days” to come.
When it comes to cleaning products, all of us at Sweeping Dimensions prefer products that work hard, smell great, and allow you to keep things clean and safe for your family – and for the environment. Here are four of our “all-American” favorites that can help you get you geared up for summertime celebrations!
1.) Arm & Hammer Baking Soda
In 1846, brothers-in-law Dr. Austin Church and John Dwight began experimenting and preparing bicarbonate of soda in paper bags out of Dwight’s kitchen. The rest, as they say, is history, with Arm & Hammer Baking Soda growing to become a household name. Today, people across the country and around the world use this popular baking soda to keep refrigerators fresh, and perform all sorts of everyday cleaning tasks.
While once upon a time this product was used for baking delicious goodies, today, Arm & Hammer is perhaps even better known as a powerful, yet gentle, cleaning agent. Sprinkle a little down the drain with hot water to keep this area smelling fresh, or mix half a cup with a bucket of warm water to mop tile floors or tackle bathroom grime.
2.) Bon Ami Powder Cleanser
Sometimes, the simplest solutions really are simply the best. Bon Ami cleanser has been helping Americans keep their homes clean since 1886, thanks to its signature highly effective, non-toxic formula. This crazy versatile cleaner is efficient for cleaning many spots around your home, including your kitchen, bathroom, and cookware surfaces. It’s gentle, but potent, and useful in grappling the hard grime and grease that can build up on your home’s surfaces. What’s more, this vintage project is perfect for the modern green household. It’s biodegradable, and environmentally friendly enough to use around pets and young kids.
3.) Heinz White Vinegar
Think this tangy liquid is only good for making pickles? Think again! We’ve written before on some of the amazing benefits of white vinegar as an inexpensive, natural cleaner. Made from sun-ripened grain and water, the versatile cleaning agent can be used all around the house. Water and vinegar can be used to wipe away bathroom gunk, make floors shine, and cut through pesky dust and grease. What’s more, you can do your instant coffee maker a favor by running vinegar through a brew cycle, and then rinsing thoroughly with two more brew cycles of water.
4.) Dr. Bronner’s
What’s more American than a truly compelling story of people coming to this country to make a better life? This all-purpose soap company was founded in California as Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps in 1948, but soapmaking was a family business long before. Founder Emmanuel Bronner was born to a German-Jewish family in Heilbronn, Germany and learned the ropes of the soap industry growing up. The company is still family-owned by Emmanuel’s son, and is known worldwide for their eco-friendly products and positive messaging.
We love this brand not only for its earth-friendly practices, but also for its products’ undeniable effectiveness in the home! Dilute Dr. Bronner’s soap into water, and you can use this solution for light cleaning and heavy duty jobs alike. You can also use this solution to ward off house pests, and even help freshen up your laundry.
