You don’t need a special reason to clean your home. If you plan on selling your property, it makes sense to carry out as much cleaning as possible, but all homeowners should take steps to have a home they are proud of.
There is no shortage of cleaning products and materials to choose from. The cleaning industry is a massive business, and a lot of companies are keen to make as money from homeowners as possible. Not everyone is willing, or able, to spend a lot of money on cleaning products. Also, you may have a cleaning emergency to attend to quickly, and cant get to the shops for the best products.
Thankfully, many household items are hugely effective for cleaning your home. You don’t need to spend a lot of money to have a clean house, and you may not even need to step foot outside of your front door!
Lemons and sea salt scrubs up brilliantly
If you are looking to get rid of grubby marks or you need to remove stains at short notice, your best tactic may be close at hand. A mixture of lemon juice, water and sea salt is often all you need to get to work on a nasty mark or stain. Small spills can be eradicated in minutes, and if you are willing to apply some elbow grease to the task, you can have your carpet, rug or couch looking as good as new in the blink of an eye.
Baking soda has plenty of cleaning uses
No matter the problem you have, you’ll find baking soda is a great way to solve them. If you are planning on selling your home, you must focus on all the senses. It is easy to focus on making your house visually pleasant, but a home that buyers love will also smell fantastic. Baking soda helps to neutralise nasty whiffs and pongs, so you should be able to create a more appealing home.
Baking soda works well with vinegar
When it comes to removing marks, you’ll find that baking soda and vinegar works well together. This combination allows you to aggressively attack stains, scrubbing them into submission in next to no time.
You’ll also find a combination of baking soda and vinegar helps you to clean worktop surfaces, kitchen hobs and even a microwave.
Of course, if you want to make cleaning the inside of a microwave extremely easy, you should return to lemon juice. When you place a mixture of water and lemon juice into your microwave and let it run for a few minutes, all you need to do is wipe a cloth over the inside, and you’ll have a shiny microwave once again.
You also don’t need to invest in expensive brushes. If you are looking to clean your grout, use an old toothbrush. This is the ideal size to allow you to get into the gaps, and leave your bathroom looking fantastic.
