Have you heard of the magic degreasing stone?

With conventional detergents and products, the task of cleaning grease from different household objects has never been easy or completely satisfactory. That is, until the arrival of the magic degreasing stone…an impeccable solution that we’ll present in this article!

It’s an artificial rock in a solid state, made of ecological, biodegradable, and natural ingredients. The materials that make up its essence are soap flakes, micronized white clay, vegetable fats, lime oil, sodium, and glycerin.

You should note that, unlike other cleaning products, this stone is free of acids, phosphates, and toxic products of any kind. That’s why, in addition to being free of allergens, it doesn’t sting the skin and isn’t dangerous for children to use.

How can I use the magic degreasing stone?

When you moisten the sponge and pass it over the stone, it produces white foam. This foam has a very fine type of clay, with which it achieves a slight erosion. This way, we can achieve a deep cleaning without damaging any of the surfaces of the home.

After cleaning, specialists recommend wiping the surfaces with a damp cloth and then with a dry cloth. This will remove any clay residue that the magic degreasing stone may leave.

What surfaces can this product clean?

The number of objects and surfaces that you can clean with the magic degreasing stone is endless. For example, you can use it to clean taps and tiles, rust stains, plastics, glass, ceramic, and bathroom elements such as sinks, bathtubs, mirrors, and toilets.

However, it’s also important to be aware of the limitations of the magic degreasing stone. You shouldn’t clean any wood in any of its forms with this stone. It’s also not recommended for cleaning any type of fabric.

Orange peels are a natural alternative for cleaning due to their intrinsic properties.

Using orange peels as a natural degreaser

In her work for the Sek International University, Andrea Emilia Quiroz Valle proposes the possibility of creating a degreaser based on orange peels. According to the author, the intention of the study is based on the fact that orange peels are one of the main organic solid wastes in her country.

Quiroz Valle argues that, in addition to being a potentially efficient degreasing agent, due to the active principles of orange peels, it’s economical to manufacture.

Even so, the magic degreasing stone isn’t expensive and is an affordable option. It’s not available in every store, but you have to look for it. Once acquired, its advantage is that you only need to use a little each time so that you can prolong its duration.
