Start Using Cinnamon In Your Routine For A Cleaner Home
Soil Enhancer
The antifungal and antibacterial properties of cinnamon make it a good plant protector. Additionally, the spice has a strong scent that helps keep common pests away.
Apply a thin layer of cinnamon after you water your plants to help it soak into the damp soil. Reapply it at least once a month to preserve its effectiveness.
Cleaning Booster
Making a simple paste from cinnamon and baking soda works wonderfully as a DIY sink scrub cleaner. You can also use it to tackle stubborn water stains.
Mix a tablespoon of ground cinnamon with 3 tablespoons of baking soda, gradually adding water to create a paste. Apply the paste to desired areas and scrub with a sponge or a brush.
Deter Bugs
You can keep ants out of your house by sprinkling cinnamon thinly and evenly around your home’s entry points. Put it by your doorways, window sills, and any small cracks.
Place cinnamon sticks or satchels stuffed with ground cinnamon in your closet, wardrobes, and drawers to protect your clothing from moths. Renew these applications often.
Mold Prevention
To make an anti-mold spray, pour a cup of water into a spray bottle, add a cinnamon stick or two, and let it soak for an hour before removing the cinnamon.
Give the spray bottle a good shake and spray the solution right on the problem spots at least once a week. Make sure to leave them alone and let the cinnamon spray dry on them.
Wildlife Deterrent
Deer, rabbits, and other critters won’t go near your plants and flowers if you sprinkle cinnamon. Scatter it along the edges of your flower beds, garden, or pots.
Sprinkling ground cinnamon or cinnamon-infused water around your doorways and window sills and all the little cracks where mice or rodents could slip through will also deter them.
