So, these are some professional cleaning secrets that we’d like to share with you:
Use olive oil to get rid of fingerprints on the surfaces of your home
It’s very effective when used on fridges, stainless steel, and other surfaces. Just get a dry, smooth cloth or the eco-friendly and reusable bamboo cleaning cloth and little drops of olive oil, and your surfaces will be back to shine just the way you like it.
Use a steam cleaner to get rid of residual products after cleaning
This is a very effective way to get rid of the chemicals that may remain on your surfaces after cleaning and disinfecting. Also, it can be used to remove dirt and soil residue. The steam cleaner works on the principle of using vapor to remove these particles without leaving anything behind. It can even be used to make carpets and rugs fresher.
Use white vinegar to remove some tough stains
In one of our blog posts, we discussed that vinegar is not suitable for all surfaces. However, it works perfectly on the suitable ones, making it easier to remove stubborn stains. The process is simple, dampen a clean fiber cloth or the eco-friendly reusable bamboo cleaning cloth with white vinegar and wipe the affected areas. You can let the cloth rest on the area for some time.
The high level of acidity in the vinegar helps to break down stubborn stains. Vinegar can be used in various cleaning applications, with the added advantage of being eco-friendly and non-toxic.
Use the vacuum cleaner wisely
Most people believe that using a vacuum cleaner is just about pushing it over the dirt, and the magic happens. Well, there is a little technique to it. Pushing the machine over the dust or dirt does not actually remove the dirt. It simply puts it in the right position.
To remove the dirt, one needs to pull it back slowly. Also, if one does not use the vacuum’s wand attachment to suck up the dust and dirt first, the machine may end up spreading dirt all around the hard floors you are trying to clean. If you do all these and your machine is not cleaning properly, then maybe you need to get a new one.
Using white chalk or cornstarch to get rid of stains
These items don’t seem like typical laundry items, but professional cleaning companies use them effectively to get rid of stains. Rubbing white chalk on grease or oil works because the chalk is able to absorb the oil and all that remains is to do your normal laundry. Are you out of chalk? Not to worry, cornstarch is a perfect substitute.
Simply add a little to a well-mixed solution of white vinegar and water. Use this solution, and the results will speak for themselves.
Start at the right places
Most people keep complaining that they have cleaned their homes, but there is still dust and dirt everywhere. The most likely reason is they did not start and end their cleaning in the right places. Starting from the furthest corner from the entrance of the room is a good move. Keep cleaning on your way to the door.
You can always start by cleaning the fan, then the tops of surfaces and furniture, then the sheets, and finally the floor. That way, any dust or dirt your cleaning material does not trap, falls to the floor, which is the last place you would clean.
There is a saying that goes; cleanliness is next to godliness. So, why not try out some of these professional cleaning secrets for your home and thank us after seeing the results?
