This is an easy ingredient most people already have in their homes. On many occasions, it has proven to be a better disinfect than bleach. Use a mixture of water and vinegar on both furniture and surfaces in your baby’s nursery. You can add a small amount of baking soda to clean some more of your stinkier items like a diaper pail. Make sure the vinegar you use is food grade.
Lemons are one of the best-kept secrets for cleaning and you can find them right in your grocery store! Lemons are antibacterial and antiseptic. This means they are the closest thing to a natural bleach. Clean off sticky surfaces by using a lemon right to it. You can also use lemon juice.

Make sure they are safe, choose organic essential oils with no fillers. They need to be 100% pure. Add your choice of oil into your vinegar mixture, and start cleaning your baby’s room.
