  • 5 tbsp of washing soda;
  • 1 apple.

How to use:

  1. Grate the laundry soap and the apple. Place in a saucepan, add water and a few spoons of washing soda.
  2. Bring the mass to a boil and turn off the gas stove.
  3. Place the grid or the hood of your gas stove in a basin and fill it with the liquid. You can wrap them with gauze soaked in the solution. Take them out in an hour and rinse with warm water.

Washing soda is an effective and economical detergent. It is stronger than baking soda, which is related to its high degree of activity. The acid from apples can perfectly cope with impurities without damaging the surface. The cleansing properties of the product increase significantly if used together with soap!
