Cleaning products can be expensive, especially when people tend to rely more on known brand names to help their ease of choice. We hope these tips will save you money and also your time in order to help keep your home feeling and smelling fresh. Instead of using pricey products, try using these alternative methods to get the job done:
First, you can clean your windows by using vinegar and a newspaper to get inside the edges. This idea is to get rid of any waxy film or residue that might be on the window; more effective and more affordable than window cleaner.
For stainless steel, there’s no need to purchase a special polish or any appliance that might cost you. Just cut a lemon in half and rub it directly onto the surface which will remove any fingerprints and grime.
Keep your toilet spotless by using cola, yes cola. Won’t go into too much detail but the cola contains carbonic and phosphoric acid, which reacts greatly in order to make your toilet sparkle.
Cleaning your microwave is easy; by pouring equal parts of white vinegar and water into a bowl and letting it heat up for five minutes, this will easily clean grease off and leave it smelling fresh inside. After letting the bowl rest for five, you will see it steam up. Carefully take the bowl out and the grease will easily wipe off.
Let’s now cover getting rid of odours surrounding your home without having to buy expensive products. Odours from bins can be reduced by simply sprinkling some baking soda into the bottom of the bin. General ways to help prevent the odour before it happens include: avoiding overfilling your bins and always trying to keep the lid closed flat. Pass up leaving leftover food exposed to flies before putting it into the bin.
Refresh your whole bathroom by adding drops of essential oil to the inside of your toilet paper. On the plus side, essentials oils can be safer than chemical fragrances.
To keep your kitchen smelling fresh, place a cup of vanilla extract in a warm oven which will add an exquisite smell to your kitchen. Then you can put half a lemon into the fridge to get rid of any potential odour.
Everyday items can help make your cleaning at home easier and quicker. By using a pastry brush you can get into the tiny gaps of your toaster to get rid of any bread crumbs. It’s also the safest way.
Keep up to date with cleaning your keyboard. Our fingertips can rub skin oils onto the keys which will then lead to creating germs. Cotton buds can be handy to help clean your keyboard and maintain good hygiene.
Use dryer sheets for dusting your skirting boards, blinds, TVs and shower screens. Pet hair can literally get everywhere and be irritating to clean up. Lint rollers will do the trick for your small spots, however for your furniture, use a squeegee.
Descale your shower head by leaving it to soak in a bag with lemon juice and vinegar. Then after a few hours rinse thoroughly. By using a mixture of grapefruit and salt, it will then successfully remove any soap marks in your bathtub.
